By the numbers: The worst round of Woods' career


It was awkward. It was uncomfortable. It was sad. More than anything, it was historic.

Tiger Woods on Friday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open recorded his worst round as a professional, an 11-over 82.

The following facts and figures related to the round come courtesy of Golf Channel's Editorial Research Department:

• Prior to Friday, Woods' worst round as a professional was the third round of the 2002 Open Championship at Muirfield, a 10-over 81 in the cold wind and rain. 

• In 1,109 rounds as a professional, Friday marked only the second time Woods has failed to break 80, with the other occasion noted above.

• Woods' 44 on his opening nine - the back nine of TPC Scottsdale - tied the worst nine-hole score of his career. He recorded a 44 in the third round of the 2013 Memorial on the back nine at another Muirfield.

• The triple bogey on the par-5 15th that sank his front side was only his second recorded triple or worse on a par 5 since 2000. The other? His infamous flagstick-drop fiasco on the 15th hole at the Masters in 2013. 

• Add in his 2-over 73 on Thursday and Woods' two-day total of 155 marks his worst 36-hole total as a professional by two shots.

• This is the first time Woods has missed back-to-back cuts on the PGA Tour. He didn't make it past 36 holes at the PGA Championship back in August before ending his 2013-14 season to rest his back. He hosted and played in the Hero World Challenge in December, finishing tied for last, but there was no cut.

• This is the third consecutive year where Woods has failed to reach Sunday in his opening start. He missed the cut in Abu Dhabi in 2013 and was MDF'd at Torrey Pines in 2014.

• Friday marks just the 12th missed cut in Woods' PGA Tour career. That said, on 13 occasions since 2010 he has missed the cut, missed the secondary cut or withdrawn from an event.

• Finally, Woods' last five PGA Tour starts appear as follows: MC (Waste Management), MC (PGA Championship), WD (WGC-Bridgestone), 69th (Open Championship), MC (Quicken Loans).
