When Tiger Woods came out of the gates on Thursday with an opening 2-under 68 at TPC Harding Park, it sparked some excitement. After subsequent rounds of 72 over the next two rounds at the PGA Championship, Woods fell to a tie for 59th, 11 off the pace and well down the leaderboard.
Woods spent the past two rounds struggling to find the right speed on the greens. On Saturday, he flared a handful of shots right off the tee, leaving himself with a bit of trouble to contend with (though Saturday’s first birdie at the par-4 16th came after a punch-out from behind a giant cypress tree trunk).
Will Woods be able to find something in Sunday’s final round of the PGA Championship? While it might not mean much for this week, it could help set him on the right trajectory for the year’s two remaining majors, a September U.S. Open and a November Masters.
We’re tracking Woods’ final round as he plays alongside Tom Hoge. Keep up with our shot-by-shot coverage below.
No. 1 – Par 4
The fog is thick this morning as Tiger takes the first tee with Tom Hoge. He launches a driver that ends up handy enough. It’s just outside the fairway on the left side.
