For the second time this year, Tiger Woods has posted his career-worst round of golf.
Tiger Woods has carded his worst ever round of golf on the PGA Tour. The 14-time major winner posted a third round 13-over par 85 at the Muirfield Village Golf Club during The Memorial Tournament.
Woods dropped to last place at The Memorial Tournament, an event he has won on five previous occasions – most recently in 2012.
The round included one birdie, six bogeys, two double-bogeys and a disastrous quadruple-bogey which came at the 18th hole after Woods saw his tee shot find the creek on the left, followed by two atrocious chip shots.
Woods refused to speak to the media following his round, and who can blame him? But the round has some golf fans suggesting it’s a nail in the coffin of Woods’ successful golf career.
We tend to think this sort of speculation is still hugely premature but from a golf point of view, it’s not a nice sight to see one of the game’s greatest players, playing a lot like yourself.
Woods hasn’t won a golf tournament since 2013 and began the week ranked 172nd in the world. He’ll be in the first group out in the morning and be playing alone as 71 players made the cut.
Ordinarily this would be a lonely round for someone who has posted 13-over par. But this is Tiger Woods after all and the golf world will be watching to see if this can get any worse.
