World Number 1 Golfer Tiger Woods was struggling to stay in contention after eight holes of his third round and had drifted to 14/1 with Bet365 to win the Open .
In typical windy conditions at St Andrews Tiger Woods dropped a shot at the par five 5th hole after hitting his second shot wildly into a bush .
After overhitting his approach to the par 3 8th hole Woods could be seen clearly on BBC cameras spitting on the tee . Prior to the tournament Woods had pledged not to spit as a sign of respect to British crowds .
Woods dropped a shot on the 8th and was only 2 under par for the tournament and seemingly out of contention .
