Tiger Woods' season ends prematurely

Published Add your comment

Tiger Woods faltered in his final round at the Wyndham Championship on Sunday after what promised to be a successful weekend for the 14 time major winner. 

Having to win to force himself into the season ending FedExCup playoffs, the world number 257 stood on the first tee of his final round only two shots off the lead. But he couldn't follow up his first three under par rounds of 64, 65, 68, ending with a respectable even par round of 70. 

Despite being unable to make early inroads with the putter, Woods was still in with a chance of the title until he reached the 11th hole where his round nosedived as he recorded a triple bogey.

When he quickly followed up by bogeying the 12th, any hope of him challenging the eventual winner and next year's Ryder Cup captain, Davis Love III was snuffed out. The true cost of his misdemeanors on 11 and 12 was clear at the end when he finished just four shots back. 

Although the three time Open Champion ultimately didn't achieve what he wanted from competing at the Greenboro, North Carolina event, the first time he had played there, he has to take some positives from his weekend's work.

After the disastrous year he has had, which saw him miss three consecutive Major Championship cuts and fall to an unthinkably low world ranking, his first top 10 finish in almost two years may be a sign that Tiger can challenge for titles again.

He told the PGAtour, "I gave myself a chance and I had all the opportunity in the world to do it.  Had my chances to get it going, I just never did."

Next time we will see the owner of four Masters green jackets is in October, when he is scheduled to tee off at the PGA season-opening Open.
