For all of our golfers traveling from St Petersburg and Pinellas County please note that you must exit at Highway 41 north and head north for one mile to Moccasin Wallow Road. Go east on Moccasin Wallow Rd for approximately 3 miles under I 75 and the club entrance will be on the right. This will add about 4 minutes onto the trip but we wanted to give everyone a heads up.

Thank you very much and its always a great day to Golf The MOC.

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland — As a skinny lad back in the day, Tiger Woods got his first taste of links golf at venerable Carnoustie. Not on the course, mind you, but on the practice round.

A student at the time at Stanford University, Woods quickly got an education in how to play the ball under the wind and on the ground of the ancient links. He was an amateur playing in the 1995 Scottish Open, but he was a kid at heart who fell in love with this style of golf on that first day at Carnoustie.

“It was one of the cooler things, just staying on the range and hitting the ball at the 100-meter sign. I was hitting 9-irons and 4-irons and 5-irons and just having a blast trying to hit that sign,” a smiling Woods said Tuesday at Carnoustie ahead of Thursday’s start of the 147th British Open.

“I remember my dad on the range with me saying, ‘Are you ever going to hit the ball past the 100-(meter) sign?’ And I said, ‘No, I’m just enjoying this. Are you kidding me? This is the best,’” Woods said.

It was a two-hour tutorial before he finally headed to the course, and on the second hole used his putter 120 yards from the hole.

“That was one of the cooler moments,” Woods said.

Since then, he’s had some big moments in the Open, winning at St. Andrews in 2000 and 2005 and at Hoylake in 2006. He’s back at Carnoustie for his third Open — he finished in a tie for seventh in 1999 and in a tie for 12th in 2007 — and his inner child has once again emerged.

“I’ve always loved playing links golf,” Woods said. “It’s my favorite type of golf. I enjoy this type of golf because it is creative and you have to use your mind. We’re not going to get the most perfect bounces. A certain shot that is hit where you think is a wonderful shot down the middle of the fairway could bounce some weird way. That’s just part of it.

“That’s the fun challenge of it.”

A warm and dry summer has turned Carnoustie brown and firm, with plenty of fire in the fairways and manageable wispy rough. It just adds to the challenge Woods relishes as he tries to win for the first time since 2013.

Since he first stepped onto the grounds on Sunday, Woods has been putting together the blueprint he’ll use to attack the course. He put a TaylorMade prototype 2-iron bent to 17 degrees in his bag because of the firm conditions. He and caddie Joe LaCava are still working on strategy off each tee, especially when Woods is hitting his 3-iron 335 yards as he did twice on Sunday.

While he’s still figuring out the pace of the greens, which are slightly slower than the normal speeds seen on the PGA Tour, Woods is confident in the mallet putter he first put into his bag in his last start, a tie for fourth in the Quicken Loans National three weeks ago.

“I have putted a little bit better,” Woods said. “To be honest with you, I’ve struggled on slower greens throughout my entire career. It’s one of the reasons why I think I really like the fact that this putter has grooves in it so it does roll initially a little bit faster and a little bit more true. And it is a little bit hotter.”

Woods is making his 12th start of the year and has been in the hunt late on Sunday in five of the tournaments. He said he’s improved from start to start.

“My feels are much better than they were at the beginning of the year, and I feel like I have a better understanding of my game and my body and my swing, much more so than I did at Augusta,” Woods said. “That’s just going to come with a little bit more experience, and I think that I’ve made a few adjustments.

“I’ve changed putters. I’ve tweaked my swing a little bit since the West Coast swing. And everything’s gotten just a little bit better. I’ve put myself up there in contention a couple times.

“Just need to play some cleaner golf, and who knows?”

We will be aerifying greens on Monday and Tuesday next week using the same small tines that we did back in May. On Monday we will aerify the front nine starting around 9:00 am and will do the back nine on Tuesday. We will close the front nine for a couple of hours to allow this process. All play Monday before 9:00 am will not be affected. On Tuesday we will do the back nine in the same manner and have that closed for a couple of hours as well. This will be minimally invasive and will not take very long to recover. We will top dress, aerify, verticut, drag, and blow all excess material to maintain a good putting surface. Starting Monday afternoon we will run a special for golf with cart for $19.63 plus tax equalling $21.00. Our golf course continues to improve and this is just another step towards making the golf course better.

For those who have been here in the last couple of months you have noticed clearing of the land for the Public shopping center and other outparcel that will be coming to the front of our property. The last two days tree removal has commenced on the property directly in front of the parking lot. This is all the start of the expansion of Buffalo rd and the traffic light which I am sure will soon start all of the future construction of the shopping center. We look forward to the completion as we look forward to the reconstruction of our entrance and parking area as well.

Have a great day and its always a great day to Golf The MOC.
