Tiger Woods birdied two of his first four holes, overtaking S K Ho of South Korea and closing in on leader Davis Love III at the British Open.

Sandwich, England: A day after losing his ball, Tiger Woods quickly found a spot on the British Open leaderboard. Woods birdied two of his first four holes today, overtaking S K Ho of South Korea and closing in on leader Davis Love III as the field began to sort itself out at Royal St. George's. Woods contending in a major? That's no surprise. But it was amazing how quickly he got himself back in contention after an awful start. Yesterday, the world's top player knocked his very first shot into the rough -- and never found the ball. He wound up taking a triple-bogey 7, putting himself in a deep hole before he barely had time to say fish and chips. But Woods bounced back, making two late birdies for a 2-over-par 73. He was five strokes behind Hennie Otto, an obscure South African who had to play a 36-hole tournament earlier in the week just to qualify. (AP)
