Tiger Woods has done an awful performance of his career by finishing a surprising 30 strokes behind winner Hunter Mahan at the World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational.
Despite Woods claim that he was not injured, he hinted that his final golf round 7 over par 77 and level at 78th finish in the 80 man field at 18 over 298 was caused by his off-course woes in the wake of his sex scandal.
After posting his most disappointing golf effort in 14 years as a professional golfer in a course where he has won seven times and was golf defending champion. Woods will be participating the last major of 2010, the PGA golf championship at Whistling Straits.
“I’ve got to be ready come Thursday. That’s all that matters,” Woods said. “I need to hit and ball better, chip better, putt better and score better.” “I don’t see of how it can be fun shooting 18 over, especially since my handicap is supposed to be zero,”added Woods.
It was no consolation for Woods to retain his world number one, ranking for at least one more week, his five year reign surviving only because the second ranked US star Phil Michelson shot a worse round than Woods did.
