Woods, Mickelson non-factors

They’ve essentially been reduced to afterthoughts today at the British Open – but the world’s No. 1 and 2 players are going in opposite directions.

Top-ranked Tiger Woods, armed with his old Scotty Cameron putter, birdied two of his first three holes but he gave those back when he made double bogey at the fourth hole. Another double followed at the seventh hole, so Woods is 2 over through eight holes and tied for 43rd.

Mickelson, on the other hand, shot 34 on his first nine holes but just made his first bogey at No. 12. He’s tied for 24th at 3 under for the tournament – well shy of what would be just his second top-10 finish in 17 British Opens. – Helen Ross
