TIGER WOODS MISSED THE CUT at Royal Portrush Golf Club in The Open Championship and sounded resigned in the process. His body was off. His shot shapes were off. And now he's taking more time off.

We're not anything like Tiger, even in his diminished 43-year-old form. But after reading his quotes more than once, I realized that he and the rest of us are sounding more and more alike.

Look at what Tiger said. I'll bet you've heard it before, whether out of the mouths of your golf pals or out of your own mouth.

"I'm just not moving as well as I'd like."

"Unfortunately, you've got to be able to move, and especially under these conditions, shape the golf ball. And I didn't do it. I didn't shape the golf ball at all."


"Everything was left-to-right."


"And wasn't hitting [it] very solidly."


"I didn't do much...

RORY MCILROY'S FIRST SHOT of the 148th Open Championship hooked out of bounds and led to a quadruple bogey 8 on the opening hole. Teeing off with an iron, feeling those first-tee jitters or whatever one experiences in those major moments, McIlroy couldn't keep his ball in play. It set the tone for a "disappointing" day.

McIlroy was thrilled The Open returned to Royal Portrush Golf Club in his home country of Northern Ireland. Now it may be over far too soon for the favorite son and major champion.

"It was obviously a disappointing day,'' McIlroy said, as quoted by ESPN.com. "I didn't put it in the fairway enough to play. I kept saying that in the press conference [on Wednesday], you need to put the ball in the fairway here if you want to do well. I didn't do that enough [in Thursday's first round] to create enough...

FOR ONLY THE SECOND TIME, The Open Championship, often referred to as the British Open, will be held outside of Great Britain. This year the tournament will be played in Northern Ireland at Royal Portrush, the host in 1951.

The fact that the tournament is being hosted at a venue outside of Great Britain has flamed the annual debate in the golf world, and the related teeth gnashing and Imperial pride as to the tournament's proper name.

Is it the British Open or The Open Championship? A London sportswriter is so aghast that the event is not being hosted in Great Britain, he called it the United Kingdom Open!

Royal Portrush originally opened for play in 1891 and was christened a "Royal" in 1895 by the Prince of Wales. The current routing, the Dunluce...

AS JOEL BEALL WRITES AT GOLFDIGEST.COM, it's been a hard year for Matt Kuchar, despite two wins for the 41-year-old tour veteran and current leader in the FedEx Cup standings.

Kuchar's reputation as a perpetually smiling good guy took a nosedive beginning in January when "Kooch" paid local caddie David Ortiz a pittance after his victory at the Mayakoba...

Bestselling author John Coyne became a caddie at Midlothian Country Club when he was 10 and oversaw the caddie yard as a teenager. Learn about his golf novels at JohnCoyneBooks.com.

CADDIES HAVE FEATURED IN A surprising number of movies, including funny ones (Caddyshack), pretentious ones (The Legend of Bagger Vance), and even sexy ones (Tin Cup, although arguably the golfer in that one, Kevin Costner, is way sexier than the caddy, Cheech Marin).

But there has never been such a serious film about the second most important role in golf as a new documentary, Loopers: The Caddie's Long Walk.

Narrated by Bill Murray, who caddied as a teenager on the west side of Chicago, the film tells the story of golf from the caddie's point of view, beginning with the first royal golfer,...

MAYBE THEY THINK WE ARE FOOLS. Maybe we should be insulted.

I'm referring to the golf equipment and instruction industry and its relentless marketing machine. We're fools if we believe the constant hype, such as more distance, more forgiveness, more whatever.

Perhaps the silliest one and dare I say an insult to any golfer's intelligence "Never three-putt again!"

Really?

I can name nearly 50 players on the PGA Tour who have three-putted this year. WITHIN FIVE FEET OF THE HOLE. See for yourself.

Several on the list have three-putted two dozen times or more during the current season.

So go ahead. Buy that putter, that gadget, that lesson. But please don't buy that ridiculous promise. Don't be a fool....

THE MYRTLE BEACH GOLF COMMUNITY is offering families a reason to pack golf clubs along with sunscreen and surfboards when they head to the beach. More than 50 Grand Strand courses, including some of the area’s most prominent, are again allowing kids to play for free when accompanied by a paying adult.

While the Kids Play Free program is in effect throughout the year, area courses see a surge in junior golfers during the summer months when families flock the beach. While the sand and surf continue to the be the primary attraction, parents enjoy the opportunity to play a morning round with their kids, leaving plenty of time to hit the beach in the afternoon.

"Kids Play Free is a 12-month program that allows...
