Tiger Woods shot the worst round of his career today

He’s propping up the leaderboard at the Memorial Tournament.

TIGER WOODS SHOT the worst round of his career, a 13-over 85, to slump to the foot of the leaderboard at the Memorial Tournament.

The former world number one was only two over after seven holes today, but then recorded consecutive double bogeys on eight and nine.

Woods — who took time away from the PGA Tour earlier this year in order to get his game “tournament-ready” — dropped three further shots by the time he arrived at the 15th, where a birdie offered him a brief respite.

But the 39-year-old’s woeful round soon took yet another turn for the worse, as he slipped back to nine over for the day, before a quadruple bogey at the last rubbed salt in his wounds.

Woods’ performance, at an event he has won on five occasions, means he is set to tackle the course alone on Sunday — as the 71st and last player in the field.

When he completed his day’s work, he was eight shots behind the next player on the leaderboard at 12-over for the tournament.

Woods’ previous highest score on the PGA Tour was an 82 at this year’s Phoenix Open and this latest display will raise huge doubts over his ability to compete in the US Open — which begins on 18 June at Chambers Bay.
