The Open 2019 Tiger Woods says his game isnt ready for Portrush

first_imgPORTRUSH, Northern Ireland — Wednesday before the 2019 Masters, Tiger Woods said his game was right where it needed to be to win. Tuesday of the 2019 Open Championship, he was less certain.“It’s not quite as sharp as I’d like to have it right now,” Woods said at his pre-tournament press conference Tuesday. But he also emphasized that because it is Tuesday and there’s still time to get there. “Today it was a good range session. I need another one tomorrow. And hopefully that will be enough to be ready.”Woods’ Tuesday began with a warmup session at the range before heading to the first tee just before 8 a.m. There, he joined the trio of New Zealander Ryan Fox and Aussies Jake McLeod and Dimitrious Papadatos. But the unlikely foursome was too good to be true and lasted just one hole; Woods split off after the first green and headed for the nearby 13th tee.The rest of his brisk morning round was spent scouting Royal Portrush’s finishing stretch — and trying to dial in his ball flight. He was joined by the ever-present Rob McNamara, plus performance coach Matt Killen, who works full-time with Justin Thomas but has consulted on Woods’ game in recent months.Matt Killen takes a photo of Tiger Woods’ putting stroke at Portrush on Tuesday.Getty Imageslast_img
