Open Championship announces venue for 2014; Tiger will be happy

If there’s one thing Tiger Woods likes more than anything else, it’s a home course advantage. Sure, St. Andrews wasn’t the course he grew up playing during his younger years, but you’d swear that was the case given his complete and utter domination of the Open Championship when it’s played on golf’s most hallowed track.

While Royal Liverpool might not fall into that category, Mr. Woods’ most recent win at the course back in 2006 added further credence to the thought that the Liverpool course is one that could soon enough be on Tiger’s home course advantage list. Anytime you thoroughly dominate a course like he did, pulling the driver out on only one occasion through 72 holes, it becomes obvious the course is tailored to his game.

Tiger will get another shot at Royal Liverpool in 2014, after the R&A announced that the course would be hosting the Open Championship in five years. That’s good new for Tiger; bad news for the rest of the field.
