Around the Old Course, Woods was unable to build up any kind of momentum from the very beginning of the round.

Tiger Woods displayed some rust in his first round of the 150th Open Championship at St. Andrews on Thursday, carding a 6-over 78 in the tournament's opening round.

When Tiger Woods returned to the course after a three-month hiatus following the PGA Championship, he recorded the greatest score he had ever recorded as a professional on the 18th hole.

When Tiger Woods returned to the course after a three-month hiatus following the PGA Championship, he recorded the greatest score he had ever recorded as a professional on the 18th hole.

On No. 1, the 15-time major champion took an unfortunate break off the first tee and hit his ball into a burn in front of the green, similar to what happened to him in the opening round of the 2015 Open at St. Andrews.

Woods recorded a double bogey because he was unable to get back up and down after taking a drop. From there, things didn't get much better.

Despite a bogey on No. 3 and a bogie on No. 4, Tiger Woods appeared to be coming into his groove after making two straight pars on Nos. 5 and 6.

Woods' tee shot on the short par-4 seventh found the fairway bunker on the short par-4 12th, leading to another double bogey. This was a shock to the system.

His round was even worsened by a poor three-putt attempt, and his short birdie shot on the 12th hole missed terribly. As a result, Woods' final six holes had two bogeys, three pars, and a birdie, resulting in a final score of 6 over par.
