Woods records highest 9-hole score of careerDUBLIN, Ohio - In the swirling, gusting winds at the Memorial Tournament, Tiger Woods had what even he termed a rough day.
Woods posted his highest nine-hole score as a professional when he shot an 8-over 44 on the back nine during Saturday’s third round of the Memorial Tournament.
Woods walked past reporters after his round and declined interview requests. He spoke later to a PGA Tour official.
“The conditions were tough and when I missed it cost me,” he said after completing a seven-over 79 that had him plummeting down the scoreboard at Muirfield Village, where he has won a record five times.
“I caught the wrong gusts at the wrong time, made a couple bad swings and all in all it just went the wrong way.”
His previous worst nine-hole score was a 43 on three occasions, most recently at Quail Hollow in 2010.
