Tiger Woods is going for something incredibly special today. The 14-time Major champion is attempting to add Major No. 15 to his trophy case. Woods is in contention at the final round of The Open.

The 42-year-old golfer is set to play in the third-to-last group at the British Open this afternoon. He'll be starting his round four shots back of the leader. There's currently a three-way tie for first place at 9-under.

Woods is at 5-under par. He had a thrilling round on Saturday in which he had several birdies. At one point, he was tied for the lead.

Right before his final round, Woods spoke to the Golf Channel, revealing what his mindset was heading into his final 18 holes.

Woods spoke about his kids. He has two children, neither of which are really old enough to remember what Woods, Major golf champion, was like on the course. He can remind them of that today.

"I want (my kids) to see dad do what he's done most of his life and make them feel and watch what their father can do," he said.

You have to love that. Hopefully Tiger will be able to do just that this morning.

Woods is set to tee off at 9:25 a.m. E.T. His final round will be televised on NBC.
