ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- Jordan Spieth's lack of experience at the Old Course and his lack of time to prepare considering the circumstances has become a much talked-about topic heading into the 144th Open Championship. Spieth, of course, is trying to complete the third leg of the calendar Grand Slam, and he has said his simulator has helped him prepare for St. Andrews.
Tiger Woods thinks that's a good strategy, but there's just one problem: wind.
"You can see the golf course on a simulator and it's fantastic. I've seen it," Woods said on Tuesday. "But playing in the different winds and having to hit the different shots, shaping shots completely differently from one day to the next on the same hole, it does help seeing the golf course under different winds."
