Tiger Woods drive hits course marshal in the face at British Open

The 17th hole at the British Open is becoming a place for must-see video. It's where Henrik Stenson snapped a club over his knee in frustration and where Tiger Woods's errant tee shot hit a course marshal in the face. The marshal appeared to be OK afterwards.

Woods went on to par the hole and finished the first round with a 3-under 69.
