We're going to track Woods's progress on a hole-hole as he goes through the first round on Thursday at Royal Portrush. The time for the rest of the field can be found here.

Hole 10 (par 4, 443 yards)
Tournament Score: 5 over par
J.B. Holmes will not give up his lead. Soon after Tommy Fleetwood attacked 18th to tie Holmes to the top of the leader board, the American submariner would hit both of them with No. 12 and No 13 to return the lead with two strokes in 9 under par.
Hole 9 (par 4), 432 yards)
A Woods approach is a sound this time, about 10 feet, but his bird putt skims across the right side of the hole. Another missed opportunity. With nine holes, Woods will need a miracle to make the cut.
Tournament result: 6 over par.
Another place: With a bird in the final hole, Tommy Fleetwood moved to a share of the lead with JB Holmes at 7 under the tournament nominee. The Englishman shot the 4th 67 in his second round.
Hole 8 (par 4, 428 yards)
For the second straight hole, this is a great blow, followed by a grim approach to the left, with Woods's ball running down to the rough left of the green. His chip is solid, and this is another one. Woods, however, depletes holes, especially holes where a bird is attainable. Cutting 1 above par, pars will not be enough.
Tournament result: 6 over par.
Hole 7 (par 5, 592 yards)
Maybe with a little bump in the footsteps after the bird in 6th place, Woods put his toughest shot in the tournament and sent his gun in a perfect part of the fairway on the easiest hole on the course. His approach, however, failed, which led to the ball in the gallery on the left side and a slightly audible curse from the Tiger. With his bounce that broke, Woods could not even try to recover the green, and his shot from the edge that had to overcome two separate ridges was eight feet long. The rescue attempt passed past the hole, and it is a crippling knocking of a hole that was there for the taking. JB Holmes has a unidirectional leadership over Tommy Fleetwood, Jordan Spieth and Cameron Smith (the last two golfers on both of them in the 1950s and 1960s). 5).
Hole 6 (par 3, 189 yards)
The first round really went out on the 6th place on Thursday as a double knocking sent it to the top of the leaderboard.

Result: Result 5 Over par
Hole 5 (par 4, 374 yards)
Woods trouble Thursday began with bogey on this short par 4 is available from tea. Driving with the driver, Woods gave his shot but landed short and right of the green, which led to a tough chip and eventually a 15-meter field for a bird that had a good line but was not fast enough.
Result 6 over par
Another place: Playing in his last major at the age of 60, 1996 British Open Champion Tom Lehmann received a nice shipment when he finished his last grand-sham circle.
Hole 4 (Par 4, 474 yards)
A perfectly fitting tee and solid approach gave Woods an 18-foot view of a bird, but his pat has a little too much speed and he slid past the hole. The Englishman Tommy Fleetwood joins the crowd behind the leader JB Holmes.
6 over par
He is tied up with Jordan Spite in the 5th pod for the tournament, good for the third place at the moment.
Hole 3 (Par 3, 172 yards)

Hole 2 (par 5, 556 yards)
The second hole was played as Royal Portrush's easiest hole on Thursday, but played a bit harder on Friday with a pin on the front left of the green, on the left side rises. And this is where Woods sent his approach to the left of the green down the hill. Faring out the green color for the eagle, Woods did not eat enough and almost saw his ball go back to his feet. His bird's stroke passed five feet past the hole, but saved his face. 6 over par
2017 British Open champion Jordan Spieth tears Royal Portrush, his bird on number 8, sending him second after JB Holmes (which is 2 for a day after five holes). Spieth has played his last four holes in 5 under par.
Hole 1 (par 4, 421 yards)
Woods opens a gun on Friday, a copy on Thursday: left of the fairway in rough, two steps from the border. But he got a nice lie and sent his approach to the green at least for a passable chance for birds, which he collapsed about 30 feet.
Right now, the cutting line (top 70 and links) sits at 1 above par.
6 Over par
The other two players in the game are English Tyrrell Hatton under 5 holes, 5 under, one shot behind the leader JB Holmes) and South Africa Erik van Rooyen (3 to 10 to join) the packet on 4 floors). Jordan Spieth is also 4 under to get to 5 under the tournament after this eagle at number 7:
