Countdown to the 141st Open Championship

The British Open could be where Tiger Woods puts the past behind him.

A long and painful climb back to No. 1 could culminate at the Royal Lytham & St. Annes course for Woods, showing more confidence and poise.

Has the growl returned? Has the passage of time allowed the golf game of Woods to snarl once again?

Those questions probably will be answered this weekend, on a scary golf course of narrow fairways and high rough that is shielded from the roguish weather of the Irish Sea by little more than a line of sand dunes.
