He just looked . . . tired.
Tired of hitting shots he wasn’t happy with, tired mentally and maybe even physically.
It’s his fifth event in six weeks, an abnormally busy stretch for Woods. He has a lot of work left though. He walked off the course seven shots behind Steve Stricker, one of his playing partners. He was low man in the grouping with Heath Slocum finishing at 2 under.
“I didn’t really do much of anything positively today,” Woods said. “I didn’t feel good over any shot today and didn’t drive it very good, hit my irons worse and didn’t make any putts. Other than that, it was a good day.”
Woods hit 8 of 14 fairways, 14 greens in regulation and took 30 putts.
