Woods hasn't played this poorly since...

When contemplating the state of Tiger Woods' game based on considerable standards of his own setting consider this: The last time he failed to play at least one round under par in a tournament twice in a single year was 1999. He's on the brink of doing so again heading into the final round of the AT&T National today.

In 1999, Woods failed to score under par in any of the four rounds of the Bay Hill Invitational or the British Open. This year, he was over par in both rounds he played at the Quail Hollow Championship (he missed the cut) and the best he has been able to deliver at the AT&T National are two rounds of even par.

UPDATE: Woods shot a one-over par 71 in the final round, concluding the tournament without producing a round under par. Woods shot 73, 70 and 70 in the first three rounds over the par-70 Aronimink Golf Club layout.
