'I don't think he gave it everything today,' Steele told SI. 'Once it started going in the wrong direction, I don’t think it had his full attention.'
Steele and Woods were paired together Sunday at Torrey Pines. Steele shot 2-under 70, while Woods posted 75 to tie for 44th. It was Woods' worst ever finish in the event.
Steele is a 27-year-old rookie from California. He finished sixth on the Nationwide Tour last season to earn his PGA Tour card for this year.
