BBC Sport - Open 2015: Woods and Oosthuizen support absent McIlroy

Woods & Oosthuizen support McIlroy

Former Open winners Tiger Woods and Louis Oosthuizen offer support to Rory McIlroy, who has been ruled out of the tournament at St Andrews with an ankle injury.

Woods - winner of two of his three Open titles on the Old Course - says he has spoken to the world number one and defending champion, who suffered ligament damage while playing football.

Oosthuizen, who secured the Claret Jug when the tournament was last played at St Andrews in 2010, tells McIlroy not to rush his comeback and risk aggravating the injury.
