Tiger Woods gave himself a mock cheer as he rolled in a birdie on the 18th hole Sunday but it couldn’t prevent him from recording his worst Masters as a professional.
Woods’ five-over score for the week was his worst since he was five-over and six-over in his first two appearances as an amateur. His tie for 40th was 19 spots lower than the T-22 he posted in 2004, the year before he won his fourth green jacket.
“It was an off week at the wrong time,” he said.
“I didn’t hit the ball very good this week and what’s frustrating is I know what to do, and I just don’t do it,” he explained. “I get out there and I just don’t trust it at all. I fall back into the same old patterns again, and I just need to do more reps. Thank God my short game was good this week and my putting was really good. Unfortunately they were all for pars, not for birdies.”
