MUIRFIELD. Located on the northeast coast of Scotland, not far from Edinburgh, it's considered the fairest test of any course on the Open Championship rotation, because it doesn't contain nearly as many of those quirky bounces and hidden dangers that define links golf. But that doesn't mean it's any less daunting. There are no trees or water hazards to contend with, but the thick rough and small greens more than make up for that. The two nines rotate in opposite directions, with the back (which goes clockwise)

GULLANE, Scotland - Tiger Woods said his ailing left elbow is "good to go" for the British Open, and he insisted yesterday there's no loss of confidence despite the longest stretch of his career without a major title. Woods held his regular session with the media ahead of the British Open at Muirfield, where he resumes his quest for a 15th major title. Once considered a lock to break Jack Nicklaus' record, he hasn't won one of golf's biggest events since the 2008 U.S. Open. "I feel very good about my game," Woods said.

GULLANE, Scotland - Jordan Spieth has a problem that would be a major irritation to most teenagers. His cellphone keeps cutting out since he arrived in Scotland. "Honestly, my service plan is not working too hot over here," Spieth said Tuesday, strolling slowly toward the lunch tent at Muirfield. But Spieth isn't like most teens. This past weekend, the 19-year-old from Texas became the youngest PGA Tour winner in 82 years. Within hours, he was on a charter flight across the Atlantic, where he'll play in his first British Open beginning Thursday.

FOR THE FIRST two rounds of the British Open at Muirfield, Tiger Woods will be paired with former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen and former U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell. But yesterday, he was with skiing star Lindsey Vonn, who was inside the ropes, and by his side, during his practice round. The British tabloids followed the pair throughout the round. Vonn and Woods often exchanged smiles and talked as they walked along the fairways. Woods will be getting a late start in the opening round.

Tiger Woods said Wednesday that soreness in his left elbow would keep him from defending his title next week in the AT&T National at Congressional, and that he would not compete again until the British Open next month at Muirfield. The strain in his left elbow first became apparent during the opening round of last week's U.S. Open at Merion, when Woods was seen flexing his left wrist or holding his arm behind his back after shots out of the thick, punishing rough. In the first match-play round of the USGA Women's Amateur Public Links in Norman, Okla., Louise Yi of Cinnaminson defeated Abby Newton of Katy, Texas, 6 and 4. Aurora Kan of Avondale defeated Hannah Wood of Centennial, Colo., 2 and 1. TENNIS: The All England Club released the seedings for Wimbledon, which starts Monday.

TIGER WOODS was in an unfamiliar position yesterday afternoon. While the victory red shirt was the same, he teed off 3 1/2 hours earlier than the leaders. It was official, Woods was out of contention for the U.S. Open. Woods entered yesterday's final round at 8-over par, nine strokes back of the leader Phil Mickelson. It was foreign soil for the world's No. 1 player, winner of three U.S. Opens. Woods struggled on the greens. It seemed that every time he would put himself in position to score with a good approach shot, his putter would not cooperate.

Somewhere in the late afternoon of the U.S. Open's third round on Saturday, as Tiger Woods stalked yet another errant tee shot, a proud local pierced through the perfunctory smatter of misplaced applause and yelled, "Merion's got teeth, Tiger. " This was not news to Woods, or to any of the 156 golfers who tested it during the Open, none of whom would manage par for the course, which certainly isn't for them. The United States Golf Association took what Merion had already done in toughening the layout, and used deep cuts of rough and persnickety pin placements to keep the golfers humble, and all of them left saying very respectful things about the course.

THE SERGIO GARCIA Reclamation Project almost held it together. Garcia began his week of penitence with a handshake and a handwritten note for his victim, Tiger Woods, on Monday. He followed on Tuesday with 22 minutes of candid and seemingly heartfelt comments of regret and remorse. As he played practice rounds and tournament rounds, he ignored the odd "Fried Chicken!" catcall and the frequent "Tiger!" shout from the otherwise benign galleries at cozy Merion, where Philly fans stood as close as the out-of-bounds.

IT TOOK ME a week of walking Merion to determine that the grand old course is the Main Line version of Roxborough's Walnut Lane - seven holes on one side of the dividing road and 11 on the other. It is 1-7 and 8-18 in the city; 1, 13-18 and 2-12 in the suburbs. The main difference I noticed was that there is no John Chaney and no pinochle in the Merion clubhouse. Merion plays to 7,000 yards and a par 70, perhaps a bit tougher test than Walnut Lane, which is 4,500 yards and par 62. Mike Kern and I played Walnut Lane one day with Chaney.

Rory McIlroy drained a birdie putt on the first hole, Tiger Woods dropped a birdie on top of it, and the crowd watching from out on Ardmore Avenue got loud - Palestra loud. The top two players in the world, getting it going. Goose bump time at Merion. Immediately, McIlroy gave the crowd on Ardmore another thrill - hitting his tee shot at No. 2 out to them . . . as in way out of bounds. Where were all the birdies, Woods was asked later. "They were at the first hole," Woods said.
