Woods won the 2006 Open, which was hosted at Hoylake and claimed it was his ‘most gratifying’ win on British soil.

Woods said to the Association of Golf Writers: “I just want to say that all my years of playing the Open Championship, starting at St Andrews in 1995, have been some of the greatest moments, and greatest memories, I have had not just in my golfing career, but in my whole life.

“I’ll roll through some of them, starting with my win at St Andrews in 200, and winning again at the home of golf in 2005, and onto where everyone is playing this week, at Hoylake.

“That week in 2006 was a very emotional one. It was the first championship I ever won without my dad being there.

“It was a tough, tough week, but also probably the most gratifying that I have ever experienced over there.”

  8. Keep your head down. It’s important that you keep your eyes focused on the ball when you tee-off. Do not look at the ball or pay attention to where it lands. Your eyes should be focused on the hole instead.
  9. Correct form is important when you are trying to move. Proper form could mean different things for different people. But, generally speaking, you want to avoid swinging through your target. Instead, you should aim to strike the ball in the center of the club face.
