Shinnecock Hills Traffic Causing Nightmares Ahead Of US Open

Tiger Woods beat Rocco Mediate in a Monday 18-hole play-off at Torrey Pines in 2008

Tiger Woods, returning to the US Open after a two-year absence and 10 years removed from his 14th major triumph, says just having the chance to compete is "pure bonus".

The yacht, believed to be at Gurney's Montauk Yacht Club near Sag Arbor, is a one-hour drive from Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, the home of this year's US Open - one of the biggest competitions in golf.

"No, there was really no expectation to have the thought that I could actually be here", Woods said on Tuesday.

"I just had to hit a lot of putts, put in the legwork".

Woods played in the 1995 and 2004 U.S. Open's held at Shinnecock.

The 42-year-old was in a genial mood as he discussed his game, although he was curt when asked about progress in his life since his arrest in May of last year for driving under the influence of prescription drugs.

But when it comes to winning a tournament for first time in five years or a major championship for the first time in 10 years, Woods has found difficulty in putting all aspects of his game together.

"There's always something that isn't quite right and that's where we, as players, have to make adjustments".

And although he has not yet won in his comeback this year, extending his drought since 2013, he has been competitive, including twice being in contention at back-to-back tournaments in Florida in March. "The key is to hit putts solid and see what happens". For the week, Woods ranked 72nd in putting out of the 73 players who played four rounds.

"What I did at Memorial, I just didn't feel comfortable over it", Woods said.

"I understand it because everyone wants to see a result on Sunday", Woods said. And those greens were quick.

"What I did at Memorial, I just didn't feel comfortable over it".

Shinnecock is located on the narrow eastern part of Long Island, accessible by just one road. "I was evening looking at a weather forecast for Monday thinking, what's it look like if you happen to work your way into a playoff?" A lot of times you can hit great putts on poa, and it doesn't go in. I haven't really got a chance to walk about a little bit, but I certainly will this week.

"I loved how it felt being there. So far this year I've only given myself a few chances". I made a nice bomb there at 17. "I've only been there for a few days now".

"I've had my opportunities".

"Also, I'm very thankful to have had those opportunities".
