I made too many mistakes, says Woods after 73

HOYLAKE England (Reuters) – Tiger Woods lamented a succession of errors after the former world number one slumped to a one-over-par 73 on a good day for scoring in the third round of the British Open yesterday.

The decision by the organisers to bring forward the start time to avoid the heavy rain and thunderstorms that were forecast proved a good one as the softer fairways and greens and the still wind led to a total of 17 sub-70 rounds being carded.

Woods, however, was unable to take advantage as he slipped to a tie for 58th position on 219, three over par.

“I made a lot of mistakes,” he told reporters at Royal Liverpool. “On top of that I missed a lot of shots for opportunities for birdies.”

The 14-times major champion made inroads on par at the first, ninth, 10th, 11th and 16th but his progress was halted by a double-bogey six at the second, a triple-bogey seven at the seventh and another dropped shot at the par-three 15th.

Woods is competing in only his second tournament since undergoing back surgery in March and believes his game is going in the right direction.
