CARNOUSTIE - Tiger Woods has spent the last month knee-deep in nappies and getting used to sleepless nights.
But the world number one scoffs at the suggestion that the entry to the world of his baby daughter, Sam Alexis, will distract him from his goal of clinching a third consecutive British Open title at Carnoustie this week.
Woods, whose wife Elin gave birth to their first child the day after he finished second in last month's US Open, is used to dealing with predictions that developments in his personal life could reduce his appetite for dominance in his sport.
"First it was getting engaged, then it was getting married," he said with a resigned smile yesterday. "Now it is having a child. There is always something."
Joking that the trip to Scotland would give him the chance of much-needed rest. - Sapa-AFP
