PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland (AP) Tiger Woods arrived at Royal Portrush on Sunday morning. Now he tries to avoid leaving Friday afternoon from the British Open.

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.

Woods didn't make a birdie until the 15th hole in his opening round of 78, his worst start in a British Open and third-highest score in a major championship. McIlroy played reasonably well except the start (quadruple bogey) and finish (triple bogey) in his round of 79.

McIlroy shoots 79 in home Open debut

PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland (AP) The opening tee shot Rory McIlroy could live with, even after it went out of bounds and shattered the screen of a woman's mobile phone.

The missed tap-in was another story all together. McIlroy was still kicking himself for that when he made another mess on the 18th hole to cap a day that went horrendously wrong for the hometown hero - and likely shot himself out of the first British Open in Northern Ireland in 68 years. Read More...

Duval posts 14 on 7th hole, shoots 91

PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland (AP) David Duval lost a few golf balls on his own Thursday in the British Open. It's one that was found that brought him the wrong kind of attention with a score of 14 on one hole and a 91 when he walked off Royal Portrush.
