Streak Snapped in Phoenix

RSS

It had to end someday. That someday was today.
 
Tiger Woods' streak of consecutive rounds at par or better ended Friday in the second round of the Phoenix Open.
 
Woods carded a 2-over-par 73 on the TPC of Scottsdale. It's his first over-par round since a 3-over-par 73 in the first round of the Byron Nelson Classic on May 11, 2000. Tiger's record streak ends at 52 straight rounds at par or better on the PGA Tour and 60 consecutive round worldwide.
 
Woods tried to make a late rally to keep his streak intact. Three-over through 12 holes, Woods birdied the par-5 13th. But following a par at the 14th, Woods hit two shots into the water at the par-5 15th. He managed to make bogey, but did so on a hole where he was looking for eagle.
 
Needing to play the final three holes in three-under, Woods nearly chipped in for eagle at the short par-4 17th. He settled for birdie, his only red number over the final three holes.
 
Woods began the day just one shot off the lead after opening in 6-under-par 65. He now stands at 4-under, 13 shots behind leader Mark Calcavecchia, who tied the course record by shooting an 11-under-par 60 in the second round.
