The three-time champion has missed the past two Open events through injury, but returns as part of Featured Group coverage alongside Hideki Matsuyama and Russell Knox.
Sky Sports viewers had the chance to select which threeball they would like to see as the marquee group for the afternoon session, with 72% making Woods’ 3.21pm start time their selection.
We will be streaming the afternoon featured group right here on the Sky Sports website and app, as well as the Sky Sports Facebook page, with coverage getting underway just before Woods’ group tees off.
