The Open Scoreboard Salutes One “Shaggy Woods”
By Stephanie Wei under British Open

On this gloomy Monday evening in St. Andrews, I was strolling by the 18th hole and the scoreboard on the first fairway caught my eye. As you can see, it reads, “W**l Pl**ed Louis…Shaggy Woods…” Clearly, the first part is congratulating Louis Oosthuizen and the second is a jab at Tiger, but am I missing something else? (If you aren’t aware, here’s the meaning for “shag” in British slang.) Chances are someone was playing a prank and didn’t have all the letters to spell out anything else. Anyone got a better guess?
