What Tiger Woods Told His Kids In Emotional Embrace After British Open

Well, of the 45 players who have won the silver medal in the past 70 championships, only two - Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy - have gone on to win The Open.

Woods stumbled with a double bogey on No. 11.

However, it proved to be a false dawn as three dropped shots in two holes saw him fall behind and in the end the 14-time major victor was being consoled by his two children. He dropped another shot on the next hole. He's never going to be the clear-cut most dominant player in the world again, but that's okay. 'The celebrations were not too wild, there was just a lot of joy to share with my wife, my caddie, my manager and a few friends telling stories about the week, ' he said. "That was a real positive for me, and it renewed the love of the Open for me". Missing a cut for a tournament is not a common occurrence for Johnson, who finished in a tie for second at the 2011 Open Championship in Sandwich, England.

He had briefly tied the lead when he got to eight under after holing a 20-foot putt for his second birdie of the day at the second hole, but a late bogey left the four-time major victor three adrift of halfway leader Brian Harman.

Molinari revealed that the treasured Claret Jug had spent the night on his bedside table although he did not get much sleep as he celebrated his triumph. And Woods played a crucial role in all three of those tournaments, so that further helps to show his impact on the ratings.

Despite his disappointment, Woods - without a win in five years and with his last victory in a major a decade ago - says he felt he can still be a force at the highest level. 'I remember Rocca's singles victory over him at the Ryder Cup in 1997 was huge news back home and then there was my own half against him at the miracle at Medinah in 2012.

McIlroy had struggled to make any headway but when he eagled the 14th he rocketed to the top of the leaderboard.

Yesterday, people on Twitter were proclaiming Tiger is back, sharing some greatest hits from Woods' incredible career. I don't back away. I played the way I wanted to play this week.

Tiger Woods made a whole lot of golf fans happy this weekend, as the 42-year-old duffer's Lazarus act during the final round of the British Open helped NBC deliver the biggest audience for golf's longest-running showcase in almost two decades.

"For a while, I thought Tiger (Woods) was going to win, " he said.

"So I can look at it - anyone can look at it however they want to, but I'm going to look at it as a positive moving forward, and try to learn how to handle the situations a little better next time".
