ESPN posted this interesting graphic shortly after Tiger Woods' first-round 69 at the British Open on Thursday. It's a look at his average first-round scores across all four majors. Let's take a peek:

Masters -- 71.8
US Open -- 71.8
British Open -- 69.2
PGA Championship -- 70.9

So he nailed his first-round British Open average. It's actually the sixth time in his last seven starts at the British Open that he's broken 70, including his last three in a row.

Here's a look at the number of first rounds he's had in the 60s at each event.

Masters -- 1
US Open -- 4
British Open -- 8
PGA Championship -- 5

Oh, you know, just sitting here staring at that "1" next to the Masters with my mouth wide open. It makes sense, I guess, that he hasn't played well there on the first day, but it's still kind of shocking.

Also, have a first day at the British Open, Tiger!
