Tiger Woods an easy target, even for AARP

Tiger Woods waits for his turn to play on No. 7 at St. Andrews on Thursday.

Tiger Woods is an easy target these days, setting personal records for futility seemingly every time he tees it up.

On Thursday, in the first round of the British Open, Woods shot a 4-over-par 76 in good scoring conditions. It was his worst round as a pro at St. Andrews.

"I know some of you guys think I'm buried and done," Woods, 39, said earlier this week. "But I'm still right here in front of you. I'm still young. I'm not 40 yet. Retirement? I don't have any AARP card yet, so I'm a ways from that."

After Woods' round Thursday, the AARP joined in on the Tiger poking, writing on Twitter: "It's better to be over 50, than it is to be over par."

Ouch.
