With the 2012 British Open set to begin at Royal Lytham on Thursday, Tiger Woods voiced his concerns over the course's rough area going on to say that it is 'almost unplayable.'
The main reason that the area is set to be so difficult is because of the heavy rains that the course has seen and with rain predicted for Monday through Wednesday, the course may become a glorified torture trap for competitors.
Woods' comments via The Guardian:
"Oh my God," was the instant Woods reaction when asked about the rough. "In some places it is almost unplayable."
"If it's calm, we can shoot some good scores," he continued. "If it's wet, lush, you've got to be more aggressive. Have to see how it's playing. Some years it's fast and some it's not. The two years I played it was quick. The ball was travelling quite a bit. They've made a few changes in tee boxes, lengthened a few holes but most of the bunker adjustments were made the last time."
In anticipation of the inclement weather in the days leading up to the start of the tournament, Woods participated in a practice round on Sunday.
