Woods Weekend Recap: Tiger Falters Down the Stretch

Following up on our report from Friday, when Tiger Woods was a co-leader at the Wyndham Championship, he struggled over the third and fourth rounds of the event, failing to end his two-year drought of winning a PGA event. Woods shot a 68 on Saturday and a 70 on Sunday to finish the tournament at 13-under par, good for a 10th-place tie. That put Woods four strokes back of the winner, 51-year-old Davis Love III, who was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend. It was Love’s first win on the tour since November 2008. Tom Hoge, who was Woods’ co-leader after the second round, finished at 8-under par and tied for 38th place.

So what does this mean for Tiger? His season is over, as he did not earn enough points to qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs. And with Woods turning 40 in December, it’s another year without a victory in a major — or any tournament — as he inches further past his prime and toward the end of his career. For years, it looked like Woods would eventually pass Jack Nicklaus for the most major championships in PGA history, but as Tiger remains four wins behind Nicklaus’ 18, it is looking less likely with every passing day that Woods will break Nicklaus’ record.
