Tiger hunts British Open success

Three-time British Open golf champion Tiger Woods will try to wrest the prestigious title away from defending champion Ernie Els as the third major golf tournament tees off on 18 July 2013. Adam Scott, the winner of the Masters in Augusta, and Justin Rose, the U.S. Open champion, are among the other high profile golfers who will take part.
