Tiger Woods had a blunt message for a cameraman as he walked down the first fairway at the PGA Championship in Southern Hills.

The 15-time Major winner hit the perfect tee shot down the middle of the fairway amid much fanfare on his way to an opening birdie three.

But the American snapped at a cameraman who, he felt, was a little to close for comfort.

"Wanna give me dome breathing space, please?” said Woods as he starred at the cameraman. "Mind giving me some breathing space, please?” he added before adding “back off,” as he gestured at the TV crew to move away.

Woods, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy all safely found the fairway on their opening hole, the 10th, with Woods hitting the longest tee shot on the downhill par four.

The 15-time major winner also produced the best second shot, hitting his approach from 95 yards to within three feet of the hole to set up an easy birdie.
