Tiger Woods just had his worst hole ever at the Players
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Tiger Woods has played a lot of holes at the Players -- 1,062 after the completion of the final round, in fact. But he's never had one this bad.
On Sunday, Woods reached the 14th tee with three birdies in his previous four holes to get back to even par for the tournament. When he walked off the 14th green, though, he'd given all of those shots back.
Woods pulled his drive into the water and from there, it didn't get any better. Here's what his first triple bogey at TPC Sawgrass looked like on PGA Tour Shot Tracker:
If Tiger struggling on the 14th hole sounds familiar, you're right. In 2013, Woods also hit his tee shot in the water, but got the benefit of a controversial drop in the rough about 250 yards away where playing partner Casey Wittenberg agreed his ball had crossed in. Woods made double bogey and went on to win the tournament.
On Sunday, however, with a tee shot that wasn't hooking as much, Woods could only take his drop about 50 yards ahead on the next tee box.
UPDATE: Woods finished with a four-day total of 291 and in a tie for 69th place. It's the worst he's ever finished on the leader board at the Players for 72 holes.
