Good afternoon everybody and welcome to the Thursday ticker. The folks in Great Britain are getting to settle in for a good night's sleep, and a that's a good thing for the a number of players after today's first round of the British Open. The day was so bizarre that after 18 holes a qualifier leads and European king Colin Montgomery has withdrawn.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Sandwich, England/ESPN; :00]

To add the strangeness of the day - Tiger Woods hit his first shot of the round into the high, thick rough at Royal St. George's. It would be tough enough to hit it out - but the problem was that not a single person could find the ball. About 25 people looked for it, but after the five minute search limit expired - no one found it. So Tiger had to head back to the tee and start over. He finished the hole with a 7. He ran into more problems on hole number 12 when his shot out of this deep pot bunker ricocheted left and led to the first of three straight bogeys on the back side. Wood finished with a 2 over par round of 73 and really has to feel fortunate to be there. He's five shots being South African Hennie Otto - who shot a 68 in some very windy conditions. One shot behind him is a Shark. Greg Norman, at the age of 48 is right in the mix after playing just as he did a decade ago when he won the Open. He's joined a shot back by Davis Love the 3rd.
