Woods flounders at the Phoenix Open
31 Jan 2015 15:03
Tiger Woods vowed to "keep fighting" and ruled out using injury as an excuse after the worst round of his professional career left him staring at a last-place finish at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
-
While Scotland's Martin Laird surged into a two-shot lead at ten under par by the halfway point, Woods was left propping up the leaderboard with Michael Hopper on 13 over.
-
Padraic Harrington missed the cut by five shots after a quadruple bogey on the 18th hole sealed a miserable 78 and left him seven over par.
-
14-time major winner Woods went round TPC Scottsdale in an 11-over-par 82 for a 13-over total. Hopper, at 12 over, had two holes remaining when play was ended by darkness.
-
Woods' round was one shot worse than his previous high at the 2002 Open Championship at Muirfield, on a wet and windy Saturday in East Lothian.
-
While rain was falling in the desert on Friday it was no excuse for Woods, whose short game in particular let him down badly as the 39-year-old recorded a triple, two doubles and six bogeys alongside two birdies.
