DUBLIN, Ohio — Tiger Woods did not just have a five-month aggressive layoff to fret about if he participate in the Memorial Tournament over the weekend.
He had playing conditions equal to a significant championship staring at him four days. Woods wrapped the Museum by shooting at a 4-over 76 at the last round to complete 6 over par, his third-worst absolute score relative to level in the tournament 18 looks.
“These were a few of the Harder conditions I have played in Quite a While,” Woods said.” [Sunday] the golf course obtained quick and obtained fast. It had been difficult for the ball and there were not — I really don’t believe there’ll be too many low scores [Sunday].”
His final-round 76 matched the third-worst around score for Woods in the championship. He shot at a 79 at 2013, as well as also an 85 at 2015.
Woods, such as he did in the next round when he needed to wait before the close of the afternoon to discover whether he made the cutstruggled with his consistency Sunday.
He had an opening birdie for the next time in the championship, but had three bogeys and a double-bogey to take at a 40 on the front nine. Woods has played 71 rounds in the Museum, and like most of players stated, he considers that the program, that was created by Jack Nicklaus, was playing very possibly as hard as it’s played all of his years attending it.
“It is probably as fast as I’ve seen in some time,” Woods explained. “It has been some time since we have had states this fast, but that is the way Jack enjoys it. It is just whether or not Mother Nature will make it. I believe that it’s setup — it is hard, but it is not on the top. Very good shots will be rewarded, and poor shots will be seriously punished.”
Woods seemed to be on his way to getting his second-worse Memorial Tournament if he bogeyed again No. 11, however, he averted a whole tragedy by birding No. 16, that was acting as the toughest hole on the course Sunday, also 17 before closing out with a bogey after about one hour delay because of weather in the region.
To put into perspective just how hard the route was for Woods, he taken a 76 in two of the final 3 rounds in the Museum. He’d taken that high just 3 occasions from the initial 68 career rounds he played at Muirfield Village Golf Club.
“Tough, demanding conditions to begin my first week ago, Thursday and Sunday,” he explained. “However, it was great for the feel and also the stream of competing .”
