If you’re tired of hearing about Tiger Woods then look away. If you love Tiger Woods you might also want to look away.

Woods followed up an encouraging T-17 at the Masters with his worst performance ever in the Players Championship. Woods closed with even-par 72 on Sunday at TPC Sawgrass to finish at 3-over 291 for the week. His T-69 finish is his worst in the event. He’s never missed the cut, but has withdrawn twice.

However, this isn’t Woods’ worst 72-hole score in the championship. Woods shot 5-over 293 in 2005, back when The Players was contested in March.

Woods went out in 40 during Saturday’s third round. The 40 included, for the first time in his career, two double bogeys on par 5s in the same round.

“It was a mixed bag, pretty much all week,” said Woods. “A lot of really, really good stuff out there, some mediocre and some bad. What did I have? Three 7s on the week. That’s not very good.”

We’ll next see Tiger in early June at the Memorial.

Following his second-round 71 at THE PLAYERS Championship 2015, Tiger Woods talks about a variety of subjects including how he keeps improving his play and how competitive the PGA TOUR has become.

In the third round of THE PLAYERS Championship 2015, Tiger Woods takes his third shot from side of green from 29 feet and to within 1 foot for a tap-in for birdie on the par-5 11th hole.

In the final round of THE PLAYERS Championship 2015, Tiger Woods rolls in a curvy 42-foot putt for birdie on the par-4 12th hole.
