TURNBERRY, Scotland (AP) Tiger Woods had another look at Turnberry as he prepares for the British Open, hopeful of taking possession of a major championship trophy again.

Woods teed off on the Ailsa Course early Monday morning and was finished as some players were just arriving. He had never seen Turnberry, which has not hosted golf's oldest championship since 1994.

"It's a lot more difficult than people are letting on,'' Woods said.

He had 15 clubs in the bag - one over the limit when the tournament starts Thursday - but was likely to take the 5-wood out and use his 2-iron to keep the ball flight down.

For the first time since 2004, Woods does not hold a major title.
