'Tiger has sabotaged his own career. Time hasn’t robbed his game, he’s done this to himself'

TIGER WOODS’ CONTINUING woes were highlighted in Monday’s world golf rankings, which saw the former number one drop to 181st.

The 14-time major winner has struggled badly for form in recent times, and shot a career-worst 85 in the third round at the Memorial on Saturday.

Woods eventually finished dead last, posting his highest ever 72-hole score of 302.

That result has seen him fall a further nine places in the rankings, with the 39-year-old in danger of dropping out of the top 200 in the near future.

One of the Golf Channel’s pundits has said Woods has ‘sabotaged his own career’ on the back of his latest false dawn.

Brandel Chamblee says Woods has ‘destroyed’ his ‘great golf game’ by changing his swing too many times.

“Time hasn’t robbed Tiger Woods of his game, he’s done this to himself,” Chamblee said.

“He’s traded his genius for the ideas of others. He’s changed his body in the gym for bulk. Everything that we see here is the result of what he’s done over the last four, five, six, seven, eight years.”

Inside the top 10, the only movers were Jim Furyk and Dustin Johnson. Furyk climbed above Bubba Watson and Henrik Stenson into third, while Johnson moved ahead of Rickie Fowler into seventh.

David Lingmerth, who defeated Justin Rose in a play-off at the Memorial, shot up from 212th to 71st.
