Video: Watch Tiger Woods hack out of a divot in his opening round at the British Open

By Shane Bacon | Blogger

There were plenty of highlights in Tiger Woods' opening round at the 2012 British Open, but few were as fun to watch, and as creative, as his second shot on the par-4 10th.

Woods hit a great tee shot in the middle of the fairway but found his ball in the middle of a nasty sand-filled divot. No worries for Tiger, who said he really pressed forward, hacked down into the ball and found the green.

Watch the shot above and hear Tiger explain just how he was able to escape the unfortunate lie at Lytham & St. Annes.
