After a 78, he might have only one more day to play in Northern Ireland. He had four birdies and one bogey.
The 15-time major champion was two under for the day after six holes, but a bogey at the seventh stalled his fightback. Still he was upbeat about the round.
After the round, Woods made a brutally honest admission after revealing he was sore, couldn't move well and said he couldn't shape the ball how he wanted to.
That says plenty because he had the ball on a string in the final round of the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive, and he had total control of his golf ball during the 2018 British Open at Carnoustie. He had a double bogey at the par-three sixth as his shot went roughly 15 yards too far. "Just the way it's going to be", he said. He ended up 7-over par, tied for 144th. "They were all left", Woods explained on Golf Channel in a group interview. "That's just the nature of the procedure that I had".
"Off the tee, it's pretty simple", Koepka explained to Golf Channel. His second shot caught a slope and rolled off the opposite side, marking where his day went from bad to worse as he finished the hole 3 over for the day. "There are too many guys that are playing well and I'm just not one of them".
Of course, Koepka had to perform. Now he tries to avoid leaving Friday afternoon from the British Open.
Westwood revealed Storey knows just how to keep him calm and focused, and the former world No 1 has promptly hit form. Those days are gone.
"I have to be realistic about my expectations and, hopefully, peaking at the right time".

He also worked with David Cronenberg a couple of times, though on his non-horror features Map to the Stars and Cosmopolis . While that part of the rehearsal was successful, it dislodged a piece of metal that been attached to part of the auto .
But he has been in the thick of things more often than that in recent times, albeit failing to convert good chances to win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and Players Championship earlier in the year.
He will have to rely on some muscle memory, strategic know-how and limited practice to get him through.
"One of the reasons I'm playing less tournaments this year is to hopefully prolong my career", he said. "And I didn't do it", Woods said.
It wasn't the worst round of the day, but it definitely wasn't Tiger's best effort. But playing at this elite level is a completely different deal.
Woods, Rory McIlroy and others who got off to a rugged start faced a daunting task trying to make the cut on a links course with ever-changing conditions and a steady challenge. "It's not going to be all-singing and dancing in majors and I was up to the test".
So, take note. He's not kidding about this.
The 46-year-old's girlfriend Helen Storey has been working as his caddie at a major tournament for the first time. But he may still be able to snag a good one from time to time.
Woods came into the British Open knowing he wasn't 100 percent healthy, and knowing he never may be again.
