Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 Review

Tiger Woods 08 is a good game, but it stumbles a bit this year thanks to some unnecessary changes and some new features that don't work well or don't work at all.

By Aaron Thomas on August 29, 2007 at 5:22PM PDT

The Tiger Woods series has long stood atop the charts as the best-selling golf franchise year in and year out. There's typically very little to distinguish one year's version from the next, but the games have always played well, and, judging by the sales numbers, people have been happy with the incremental upgrades. But even those expecting minimal improvements are likely to be disappointed with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08. There are some new features, but many of them don't work. Also, there are a fair amount of frustrating bugs (particularly in the Xbox 360 version) that give the game a rushed feel. Even the game's most noteworthy feature, the analog swing, doesn't work as well as in previous years.

Putting is now easier than ever.

TW 08's game modes are almost exactly the same as last year's. New to the PS3 and 360 is bingo, bango, bongo, a head-to-head mode where you are awarded "bingo" for being the first on the green, "bango" for being the closest to the pin when you reach the green, and "bongo" for having the best score. It's OK, but as the lone new play mode it's underwhelming. Online play is largely unchanged--even the lag issues and glitches are back for another go. Career mode hasn't seen a whole lot of change, but what is different is better. You can now choose how long you want standard and major tournaments to be, which is nice for anyone who doesn't want to go through four rounds on the same course for one tournament. Thanks to the addition of Westchester, TPC Boston, Cog Hill, and East Lake, all FedEx Cup courses are in the game. Throw in Harbour Town and there are now 16 courses--a healthy amount, but still far fewer than in the last-gen versions. There are 21 professional golfers in the game, eight of which are new: JB Holmes, Justin Rose, Camilo Villegas, Cristie Kerr, Morgan Pressel, Paul Casey, Paula Creamer, and Natalie Gulbis. Of the amateur golfers, many, like Pops Masterson, are returning favorites, but there are also some new faces, such as soccer player Wayne Rooney, to play with and against.

Once again you start your career as either a rookie Tiger Woods or a created golfer with limited skills. You can improve your skills a little by performing well in events, but you'll want to take the skills challenges, which are largely unchanged, to improve them quickly. The idea is to simulate a golfer getting better by practicing and gaining experience, but it feels artificial thanks to the level caps, which are the same for each skill and go up only when you beat certain tasks in the Tiger challenge. Not only do all golfers end up playing the same (because you tend to level their skills up evenly), but the process is cumbersome--especially if you play the series every year. Because your golfer will stink to start off, you won't stand a chance at winning a tournament event. Making you play with such a lousy golfer feels like a contrived, last-ditch effort to make the game challenging. Speaking of artificial challenges, the CPU's tendency to go from making miracle shots to blowing absurdly short putts depending on how close the match is seems more pronounced than ever.

Because your golfer isn't much better than the average weekend hacker, you'll spend your time playing the Tiger Challenge until you've gotten the skills and the equipment to take on the tour. Rather than consisting only of 9- and 18-hole challenges against other golfers like last year, the challenges are typically shorter and more varied. There are long drive contests, par-3 challenges, and challenges from the rough and sand. It's certainly more interesting than before, but the sheer number of events means that the challenges still become tedious because there isn't all that much variety to them.

If you can get it to work, the game face can be pretty entertaining--even if the result doesn't always look much like the picture.

A few changes have been made to how the game plays on the course--some good and some not so good. The best addition is the return of the "3 button press" mechanic from early in the series. At any point in the round, you can push the right analog stick in and the meter comes up. You press one button to start the swing, press it again to set the power, and press it a third time to determine accuracy. This works well, which is a good thing considering what EA did to the analog swing. It's extremely sensitive, so the slightest push to the left or right will send your ball sailing into the rough, or, quite frequently, out of bounds. The sensitive stick is most problematic on the Xbox 360, but it's still an issue on the PS3, just to a lesser degree. This is an issue even when using a golfer like Tiger Woods, but it's a huge problem when starting out with a created golfer--they'll hit the ball everywhere and don't have the power to make up for mistakes.

Another change, this time for the better, is how you add a draw or fade to your shot. You just tap a button to instantly teleport to the landing zone (you can hold it down to slowly zoom), and then add a fade to the shot by pressing left bumper or L1 to move the target to the left, or add a draw by pressing right bumper or R1 to move the target to the right. This works great and really pays dividends when you're hitting off the back tees and are forced to make more creative shots. Putting has gone largely untouched, but now you can check your aim and power by pressing a button to zoom out above the green to see the path the ball will travel. You can't make any adjustments while using this view and you can use it only once per shot--but it still makes putting too easy. It's no problem at all to drain 50-foot putts; in fact, you'll do it so often you'll come to expect to make them nearly every time.

And then there are the problems from last year that simply went unaddressed. There's still a crowd lining the course and they're still standing way too close, often getting in the way of shots that just missed the fairway or green. You can fast-forward while the ball is in the air, but you can't skip your opponent's turns and you can't turn off their practice swings or celebrations. Yeah, we got it, Pops is old and grumpy--can we skip his theatrics next year, please? Whether it's because of the bad lighting, lack of shadows, poor textures, camera angles, or a combination of all four, it can be difficult to read the slope of the green without the help of the putting grid. This makes chipping onto the green more frustrating than it should be, because the ball will just roll right off the green or back toward you because of an unseen change in elevation. On its own it's not a huge problem, but when you combine it with your golfer being terrible to start off and the touchy swing controls, it's just another way to lose a few strokes a round.

The Tiger Challenge has more variety this time around.

The biggest new gameplay feature, or at least the most hyped feature, is the EA Sports Gamernet. This allows you to save your best, worst, or weirdest shots and share them with the world. Not only can you share them, but you can turn them into challenges for other players to attempt. This is a neat idea, but one that's underwhelming in practice. For starters, as of this writing it doesn't work properly on the Xbox 360; you can make challenges, but you get an error when you try to make a highlight. But the biggest problem is the challenges aren't all that fun. It is nice to be able to play a round and then upload it for a friend to play, but unless you've been challenged by a friend there's little reason to try to bounce the ball off of a building and then onto the fairway, or to spend a half hour trying to drain a 113-foot putt.

Once again the great create-a-character mode is back, but this year you can make your likeness more realistic than ever thanks to the photo game face mode. Using the Xbox Vision Camera (which also works with the PS3), the EyeToy, a USB camera, or pictures uploaded to a Web site, you can create a 3D model of your melon for the game. At least, that's the idea--too bad it doesn't work very well. None of the digital cameras we tried worked, nor did the Web site where you upload photos. The Vision Camera worked OK, but the results were hit or miss. This seemed due mostly to the limited customization you can perform once the face is rendered. There are plenty of options, but the inability to change skin color or add eyebrows results in some odd-colored heads with no discernable brows.

And that's the big problem with Tiger Woods 08; it feels like a good idea that wasn't seen through to completion. There's too much here that simply doesn't work, particularly in the Xbox 360 version. The 360 crashes in the same place during the Tiger Challenge, making it impossible to finish, and you can't upload highlights to the EA server. Both the PS3 and 360 versions have periodic lag, glitches, and freezing issues when played online; the game face upload site doesn't work; and the single-player suffers from glitches like golfers vanishing, taking drops when they weren't supposed to, and a way-too-sensitive analog swing.

Raise your hand if the game feels rushed.

Tiger Woods 08's graphics are virtually indistinguishable from Tiger Woods 07's. For the most part the golfers look like their real-life counterparts. Each player has a unique swing, which is good, but they look lousy in motion. Players will warp from one position to another when preparing to address the ball; sometimes they don't appear to hit the ball at all; and there are frequently hitches in their swing. When the camera is still the courses look great, but when it starts panning around or following the ball the frame rate takes a bit of a hit and the grass looks lousy. Other objects, like rocks and many trees in the distance, look downright awful, moving or not. Even with the addition of more-dramatic camera angles for your opponent's shots (which often are horrible), the presentation is dry and in sore need of an upgrade--and that includes the commentary.

People who worry about yearly releases diluting the quality of games have plenty of ammo in the form of Tiger Woods 08. The changes to the gameplay are minimal, and some of them make the game worse. There are only five new courses, and many new features don't feel fleshed out, don't work well, or flat-out don't work. The PlayStation 3 version is the one to go with if you have the choice. It's a good game with fewer issues than the 360. Xbox 360 owners should just stick with Tiger Woods 07.

  • Leave Blank
  • More courses and golfers than last year
  • Game face is a lot of fun, when it works
  • New draw and fade mechanic works well
  • Analog swing is too touchy
  • Many features don't work well, if at all
  • Doesn't play as well as last year

Description official description

The 2008 edition in the Tiger Woods PGA series introduces enhancements and improvements to the previous version without major graphical or gameplay changes. There are new courses (Xbox 360/PS3: 5 new, 16 in total - PS2: 6 new, 18 in total) and different licensed professional golf players to choose from (21 on the Xbox 360/PS3 - 23 on the PS2/Wii).

The Xbox 360, PS2, PS3 and Windows versions allow players to import photos to create in-game faces on the characters based on custom images, using the Xbox Live Vision camera, PlayStation EyeToy, PlayStation Eye or a webcam. Further customizations include clothing, hair or eye color and more. The initial statistics can be improved by completing challenges based on power or putting precision. They can also be raised by performing well in the PGA Tour, taking into account skill shots and not just the overall ranking. Players can unlock additional golfers and spend their winnings in the shop on new equipment.

The game incorporates the FedExCup championship format (a collection of tournaments) with rounds of golf at Westchester Country Club, TPC Boston, Cog Hill, and East Lake. The putt preview has been improved, allowing the player to simulate the ball's path once per individual spot, taking into accounts elements such as power, speed and elevation. On the Xbox 360 and the PS3, shots are not performed using the analog stick, but with the 3-point timed principle for start, power and accuracy. Shot Confidence is a new addition, keeping track of the player's performance on certain courses, for specific puts and using certain clubs. Great performances raise the confidence, which translates into experience and better performance on specific courses. Low confidence leads to lower accuracy, a pumping heartbeat, and rumbling controls on the Wii.

The multiplayer (up to 4 players) has been expanded with GamerNet, where players can create and play custom challenges with their scores posted online (Xbox 360/PS3/Windows).

On the Wii, players can shake the controls to taunt the opponents with 4 different moves, to throw them off. It can be used to influence air conditions, spin, or adds audio distractions. The controls are available in 3 modes: Full Swing (wii remote), Sitting Swing (new, waggle the wii remote) or the classic controls using the nunchuck for analog play. In Full Swing, twisting the wii remote adds hooks and slices prior to shots. Also exclusive to the Wii is a Miniputt mode.

Tiger Woods opens PGA Championship in 1-over 72

Tiger Woods knows he's competitively rusty, compared to the vast majority of this week's PGA Championship field. That doesn't mean he expects any less of himself.

Woods opened the 106th PGA Championship in 1-over 72, a mixed bag of a morning in Louisville, Kentucky. He battled through a series of wayward tee shots to remain around par through the majority of his opening round at Valhalla Golf Club, and he caught fire midway through his second nine to move into red figures. Woods, though, closed with back-to-back three-putt bogeys that will leave a sour taste in his mouth overnight. He's 10 strokes off the pace of Xander Schauffele, who carded 9-under 62 to begin the week, the PGA Championship's single-round record low score.

The day resembled his first round at last month's Masters (1-over 73), with an up-and-down cadence but an end result that should fall near the projected cut line. Woods followed with a second-round 72 at the Masters to make the cut, setting a tournament record with his 24th straight made cut. He'll look Friday to play the weekend for a second straight major championship, aiming for a faster start than he accomplished Thursday (where he was lucky to escape his first three holes in just 1 over, before working into more of a flow).

"It took me probably three holes to get back into competitive flow again and get a feel for hitting the ball out there in competition, adrenaline, temperatures, green speeds," Woods said after his opening round. "These are all things that normally I adjust to very quickly, and it just took me a few holes to get into it.

"I am getting stronger for sure ... Each day is a little bit different. Some days, it's better than others. It's just the way it is. My body is just that way. Some days, it feels great, and other days, a bit of a struggle."

Woods' history echoes throughout the grounds at Valhalla, as his 2000 PGA Championship victory here (outlasting Bob May in a three-hole playoff) marked the third leg of the "Tiger Slam," which he completed at the 2001 Masters. Woods won the 2000 U.S. Open and The Open by a combined 23 shots, before the wily veteran May gave him all he could handle for 75 holes at Valhalla. It might be a tall task to expect Woods to hoist another Wanamaker Trophy this weekend, but making the cut for a second straight major championship is certainly in the realm.

"I think that I've made a few cuts in a row, what was it, 140-some odd," Woods said Thursday. "So you have to just grind it out. It's a marathon. Major championships are a long grind. It's just plotting along. It's not a sprint. It's just a grind.

"You can't win a tournament unless you make the cut. That's the whole idea is get to the weekend so that you can participate and have a chance to win. I've been on the cut number and have won tournaments, or I've been ahead and leading tournaments and I've won tournaments. But you have to get to the weekend in order to win a golf tournament."

Read below for hole-by-hole updates from Woods' opening round at the 106th PGA Championship.

1:25 p.m.: It's a disappointing finish for Woods, who closes his round with a second straight three-putt bogey.

He splits the fairway off the tee at the dogleg-right, 411-yard par 4, leaving just 144 yards to the hole, but plays a substandard approach to 34 feet, leaves his birdie putt 6 feet short and cannot convert to save par. It means a 1-over 72 for Woods, featuring some good and some bad. He'll still be within striking distance of the cut line at Valhalla, but he's 10 strokes back of early leader Xander Schauffele, who set a PGA Championship single-round scoring record with a 9-under 62.

1:10 p.m.: Woods plays to the front-left portion of the 169-yard, par-3 eighth, but his birdie putt releases well past the hole to leave a lengthy par attempt from 10 feet. He can't convert. Just like that, after reaching red numbers for the first time on the previous hole, he's back to level par for the day. One hole remains.

12:55 p.m.: After a solid two-putt par from 54 feet at the staunch par-4 sixth, Woods solves the double-fairway, par-5 seventh. He plays to the left fairway off the tee, strikes a 238-yard second shot into the right greenside bunker (a conservative line with flanking down the left side) and gets up-and-down with a birdie from 13 feet.

For the first time today, Woods is under par. It's a testament to his resilience after a shaky start, and his body appears to be holding up respectably. He's 1 under for the opening round with two holes to play. He's eight off the pace of leader Xander Schauffele, but the 15-time major champion is tied for 17th on the leaderboard, comfortably inside the projected cut line.

12:15 p.m.: Woods is finding a groove as the round progresses, but he can't quite get on a birdie run. He strikes a 69-yard wedge to 14 feet on the short par-4 fourth but cannot convert the birdie. He stuffs a 156-yard 8-iron to 9 feet on the scenic par-4 fifth, the approach shot descending down the hill, but cannot convert the birdie. He settles for back-to-back stress-free pars, remaining at even-par on his round with four holes to play. He's eight back of Xander Schauffele, who is threatening the PGA Championship's all-time single-round low of 63 (which has been recorded on 18 occasions).

11:45 a.m.: Tiger is a tactician. He stripes his tee shot on the 194-yard, par-3 third to 5 feet and converts for birdie, returning to even-par on the day. It's his second birdie of the round, accompanying his 3 on the limestone-waterfall par-4 13th. Despite some loose tee shots at times, he's making it work with his trademark grit that has led to a record-tying 82 PGA TOUR titles.

11:30 a.m.: Woods is struggling to find a groove off the tee, but he's making it work anyway. He tugs his tee shot left at the par-4 first hole, his 10th, but muscles out an approach onto the green to leave a 19-foot birdie attempt; he two-putts for par. He over-cuts his tee shot on the long par-4 second, catching a greenside bunker; he plays his second shot to the fairway short-right of the green. He plays a deft 35-yard pitch to 5 feet and saves a crafty par. He's 1 over through 11 holes.

10:55 a.m.: After two big shots at the 571-yard, par-5 18th, Woods faces a straightforward eagle pitch from a collection area just behind the green. He can't take advantage though, as the 56-foot pitch settles 14 feet short of the hole, and he two-putts for a slightly disappointing par. Woods turns in 1-over 37, six strokes behind leader Xander Schauffele, who turns in 5-under 31 from the same nine.

10:35 a.m.: Woods makes back-to-back pars on Nos. 16 and 17, and they come in contrasting styles. His par at the brawny 503-yard, par-4 16th is routine -- fairway, green, two-putt from 24 feet (although the second putt is a 7-foot comebacker after a slick birdie try). He fights harder on the par-4 17th, missing his tee shot into the right rough and his second shot into the left greenside bunker but then getting up-and-down with a 7-footer. He's 1 over through eight holes, headed to the par-5 18th.

10:04 a.m.: Woods falls victim to Valhalla's thick rough on the par-4 15th, as he misses his tee shot into the left rough and is forced to lay up, similar to on No. 12. This time he can't save par, as his 68-yard third shot lands 33 feet past the hole and he two-putts for bogey. Woods returns over par for the day, now 1 over through six.

9:40 a.m.: Woods plays a smart shot to the middle of the green on the 256-yard, par-3 14th, and he comfortably two-putts from 54 feet. Woods stays even-par through five holes, as he has demonstrated good pace on the greens early Thursday in the Bluegrass State.

9:20 a.m.: Woods rolls the momentum from an unlikely par at the 12th into his first birdie of the week. On the iconic limestone-waterfall par-4 13th, he splits the fairway and plays a deft 92-yard wedge to 18 feet. He doesn't miss a beat on the uphill birdie try; it finds the center of the cup. Woods returns to even-par on the day.

9:02 a.m.: Woods is a 15-time major champion for many reasons; among them, he has a propensity to grind out unexpected pars to keep a round on the tracks. The par-4 12th hole is proof positive; after missing the fairway left into thick rough and being forced to lay up, Woods gets up and down from 180 yards, draining a 15-footer to save par from near the green's back edge. He delivers a sheepish salute to the appreciative fans, staying 1 over through three holes.

8:45 a.m.: Woods gets scrappy on the 211-yard, par-3 11th, as his tee shot misses the green long-right and he chips back over the green into a bunker. He saves bogey with a 6-footer, though, limiting the damage. He's 1 over through two to begin the day.

8:32 a.m.: Woods plays a fairway metal to the rough some 50 yards short of the green on his opening hole, the par-5 10th, leaving an awkward angle for his third shot, short-sided. He plays a masterful high flop shot for his third, 12 feet past the hole, and two-putts for an opening par. The 82-time TOUR winner is off and running at Valhalla.

8:15 a.m.: Woods takes driver for his first swing, beginning on the par-5 10th, and uncorks a high fade that splits the fairway. The crowd roars. Woods is sporting a salmon shirt with his new Sun Day Red branding.

Why the PGA Tour must listen to Tiger Woods and the group of 22

Imagine a PGA Tour where you know when the top players will appear, where fields outside of majors will feature most of the top 10 instead of just two or three. Where the days after each major are not dominated by conversations about the latest golfers to sign with LIV, but instead what happened and what could happen next. It feels like a distinct possibility now, as several media outlets reported details from the meetings Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy have organized, most recently during the BMW Championship last week.

Advertisement

Six thoughts on what’s come out and what’s next, as the players step up and take control.

1. The list of names, per No Laying Up , that attended these meetings is fascinating. Just read through it: Scottie Scheffler, McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, Jon Rahm, Xander Schauffele, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, Will Zalatoris, Viktor Hovland, Matt Fitzpatrick, Sam Burns, Jordan Spieth, Tony Finau, Billy Horschel, Cameron Young, Joaquin Niemann, Max Homa, Shane Lowry, Tyrell Hatton, Kevin Kisner, Adam Scott, Rickie Fowler and Woods.

Remove Woods, who even the most optimistic Tiger Woods fan would have to admit is unlikely to make more than a token appearance at these elevated events, and the average age is 29.7 years old. Adam Scott, at 42, is the group’s elder, and four are 25 or younger.

This is not the previous generation making up the rules for those coming behind them. This is not the old guard holding onto the PGA Tour of their heyday. These are the stars for the next decade-plus determining their own fate in much the same way their peers who departed for LIV did during the last three months. This is action. It’s significant, and it’s especially important that there are so many young, still emerging, stars on the list.

2. The biggest name on the list, as it has been for 25 years, is Tiger Woods. His efforts to serve professional golf here are notable and necessary. I dare say at this point that the transformation from a man so competitive he eschewed most personal relationships to one capable of getting all the top players in the room and laying the groundwork for the group is complete.

I remain fascinated to see what Woods becomes without a golf club in his hand, and what the future holds for him. He does not need the title of PGA Tour commissioner to run the sport, and it increasingly feels like that is the endgame here. Whether or not that is his intent, that is the level of influence.

3. So many of the reported plans are conceptual that it’s hard to even call them plans — strongly-worded suggestions, perhaps. “These are the things we would like for you to do in order to prevent even more of us from going over to the renegade tour, and this could have all been avoided if you were more willing to listen and adapt just 12 months ago,” as something of an opening statement.

But it’s worth digging deeper into what existing PGA Tour events could become the 15 or so “elevated” events. The Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines feels like a worthy start to the year, plus the Genesis Invitational and Bay Hill in the run-up to The Players (which presumably exists as its own thing, with a larger field) and then the Masters. The Memorial feels like an automatic as well.

A concern: An end-product of all of this will be the “normal” PGA Tour events mattering even less, with less of a chance to get more than one or two bigger names into their fields. And the PGA Tour has got to do a better job of putting bigger events together in the dog days of summer, when the sporting calendar allows for golf to get a lot more attention. It doesn’t have to be every year, but places like Detroit, Minneapolis and Greensboro should get opportunities to have the best of the best show up en masse in their city during July and August.

4. The Athletic ’s Brendan Quinn ran the numbers and the 21 top-30 players who were in attendance played together at the four majors, of course. But they were together only three more times: The Players and the first two FedEx Cup playoff events. Only five times did at least 15 of them play at the same time.

You could write another 2,000 words on why that has been the case, but if all of this comes to fruition, it’ll be incredible positive for the PGA Tour to get the best guys together more often. And give them negotiating power with the TV/streaming rights-holders as they seek to renegotiate existing contracts for this new structure.

Over the rest of the calendar, 15 or more of those top-30 players competed in the same field five times. Looking at how many from this group appeared in which events in 2022: pic.twitter.com/VZT8tLMaQO — Brendan Quinn (@BFQuinn) August 22, 2022

5. Another challenge in this is the potential for restricting the next Cameron Young or Joohyung Kim from having the opportunity to quickly rise from the Korn Ferry Tour to the PGA Tour to these elevated events. This is protecting your flank: As much as the PGA Tour must stop the flow of top-20 golfers to LIV, it must make itself the obvious and best choice for the next generation of talent, which is constantly emerging and not predisposed to waiting “their turn.” There should be a certain number of spots in the field open and incentive-based, providing access to what Fire Pit Collective reported as $20 million purses.

6. None of this will keep Cameron Smith, the most notable name not at those meetings and widely reported to be heading to LIV Golf at any moment now. It’s a loss, the biggest one to date from the PGA Tour to LIV. A 54-hole, no-cut exhibition circuit played at unremarkable golf courses remains not compelling to me in the least, but run through LIV’s roster and count how many names were missing from that Delaware hotel conference room. LIV has come a long way from its initial roster reveal of Dustin Johnson and half the Asian Tour.

Golf: Tiger Woods in tears as he bids farewell to St Andrews at the Open Championship

Share this article

Tiger Woods waves to the crowd. Photo / Getty Images

Tiger Woods removed his cap a few strides from Swilcan Bridge, knowing it might be the last time he crossed over in a British Open at St Andrews.

This is where the legends pause, pose and wave goodbye.

"Stop! Stop!" a few photographers cried out as they positioned themselves for another historic moment at the home of golf.

Woods kept right on walking, even as tears began to form in his eyes.

"That's when I started to realise — that's when I started thinking about — the next time it comes around here, I might not be around," Woods said.

He said this wouldn't be his last British Open. Woods just doesn't know if his 46-year-old body, battered by multiple surgeries on both legs and his back, would be fit enough to compete when it returns to the home of golf. Woods mentioned 2030. The R&A hasn't announced the rotation that far out.

Still, the moment was not lost on him.

Woods saluted the thousands of fans in the grandstands on the left, and thousands more who watched from hotel balconies and rooftops on the perimeter of the Old Course, some peering through windows, others without a ticket hanging from the top of the fence on the road down the right side of the 18th fairway.

Rory McIlroy looked over at him from the first fairway — he was starting his second round as Woods was finishing a 75 to miss the cut — and tipped his cap. Justin Thomas was on the first tee and nodded to Woods.

"As I got closer to the green, the ovation got louder," Woods said. "You could feel the warmth and you could feel the people from both sides. Felt like the whole tournament was right there."

It may as well have been.

This is where Woods won his first Open in 2000 to become the youngest player to complete the career Grand Slam. He won another claret jug at St Andrews in 2005, the year Jack Nicklaus finished his major championship career.

No one has ever won an Open at St Andrews three times, and Woods wasn't about to change that. The only thing ceremonial for him was his golf — a 78 in the first round, only one birdie in the second round despite the most benign conditions of the week.

No matter. The Old Course, which had been relatively quiet all morning, came to life the closer he made his way to the finish.

"The people knew that I wasn't going to make the cut," Woods said. "But the ovations got louder as I was coming home. And that to me was ... just the respect. I've always respected this event. I've always respected the traditions of the game.

"I put my heart and soul into this event over the years," he said. "And I think the people have appreciated my play."

Woods gave them little to celebrate on what might be his final round at St Andrews. He only had four reasonable birdie chances. His flop shot over a pot bunker guarding the front pin on the 16th hit the top and rolled back into the sand, leading to his third double bogey of the week.

By then, it didn't matter. The people just wanted to see him.

After he ripped his drive over the Old Course Hotel sign and into the 17th fairway, hotel guests and spectators lined up against the wall in front of the hotel and the Jigger Inn. The grandstand was full behind the 17th, and people stood six deep in the space behind the road and the stands.

It was similar to when Nicklaus played for the last time in 2005. He was 65 and had announced months out it would be his last Open, his 166th and final major. Everyone knew it was coming.

Not even Woods knows his future, only that he was thankful — and lucky — to be playing an Open on the Old Course just 17 months after he crashed his car in Los Angeles and sustained so many broken bones that doctors contemplated amputation on his right leg.

He headed to the 18th tee, the home hole. All he said he could think about was whether to hit 3-wood or 5-wood. But as he walked off the tee and got closer to the bridge, he realised his caddie, Joe LaCava, was lagging behind. So were Matt Fitzpatrick and Max Homa, who rode shotgun for an emotional day involving the best player of their lifetimes in golf.

"It was amazing. It gave me goosebumps," said Fitzpatrick, who won his first major last month in the US Open. "Just looking around, seeing everyone stood up, and giving him a standing ovation coming down 18. It was incredible. It's something that will live with me forever.

"It's thoroughly deserved, and I think towards the end of it, you could see he was a little bit emotional as well. Yeah, it was a big deal."

Not even Woods could deny that. He just wished he could have written a better ending. He chipped with a mid-iron to about four feet for one last chance at birdie, a fitting farewell. Thomas, Shane Lowry and Viktor Hovland were at their second shots to the first hole. They all turned to watch Woods finish out.

He missed the putt.

All that mattered to Woods was an ovation he won't forget.

"It's very emotional for me," he said. "To me it felt like this might have been my last British Open here at St Andrews. And the fans, the ovation and the warmth, it was an unbelievable feeling, I understand what Jack and Arnold [Palmer] had gone through in the past. I was kind of feeling that way there at the end."
