Tiger Woods’ nightmare start to second round of British Open set to ‘Yakety Sax’ (video)


Tiger Woods probably felt the start to his first round of The Open Championship on Thursday at Royal Liverpool was not the way to start of a day on the links.

If he only knew what was in store for him on Friday.

Much like in Round 1, Woods struggled mightily on the first two holes. After going bogey-bogey on Thursday, Tiger upped the sloppiness on Friday, spraying shots all over the course — when he wasn’t chunking them — during an absolute nightmare first two holes which resulted in a double bogey-bogey opening.

And what better musical accompaniment for chronicling of Tiger’s tough start than to speed up the video a bit and add some Benny Hill-inspired “Yakety Sax”?


Much like he did on Thursday, Woods righted his round in the subsequent holes, carding pars on the remaining seven holes on the front nine. But as he made the turn, Woods was at even par, seven strokes off the pace McIlroy is setting as he was 1-under for the day and 7-under for the tournament as of mid-morning.

It remains to be seen if Woods can go on a hot streak on the back nine as he did on Thursday, when he birdied five of eight holes to close out his first round.

At least Tiger can take some solace that he hasn’t drilled anyone in the face with a tee shot, nor has he been forced to yell “Jesus Christ!” at anyone during his second round, a modest improvement on his first round. That’s something.
