"A links-style golf course you can just roll the ball", added the 42-year-old. "I've been taped up, bandaged up", said Woods.
Sky will be showing the entire thing live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Golf, starting with the first tee time at 6.30am on Thursday and ending with the lifting of the Claret Jug on Sunday afternoon. He tried to play to his spots, even if it routinely left him more than 200 yards for his approach.
Stone has come to Carnoustie fresh from a spectacular final round of 60 to win the Scottish Open at Gullane last weekend, and South Africans have previous at winning the Claret Jug in these parts.
More damaging to his score was his play on the par 5s. "I don't think the rain is going to affect how the golf course is playing in one day, but I have to just keep doing what I'm doing".
