Woods gets Westwood, Ishikawa at British Open

Turnberry, Scotland:

Tiger Woods can expect even more attention than usual the first two rounds of the British Open, as he is playing with Lee Westwood of England and Japanese sensation Ryo Ishikawa.

Woods has never played with the 17-year-old Ishikawa, who made history at 15 when he won on the Japan Golf Tour, the youngest winner on a sanctioned circuit. They met briefly in Arizona at the Accenture Match Play Championship, captured by dozens of photographers.

Defending champion Padraig Harrington will play with former US Open champions Jim Furyk and Geoff Ogilvy.

The first group Thursday includes former Open champion Mark Calcavecchia, among the fastest players in golf.
