Tiger Shoots A 74 In What Might Be His Last Competitive Round Before His Masters Defense

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — He’s on to Augusta. Okay, maybe Houston.

Playing So-So In The ZOZO Isn’t Getting It Done For Tiger Woods

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — If Thursday’s 76 was terrible and Friday’s 66 was terrific, Saturday was … meh.

Tiger Woods makes progress in advance of the Masters with a 66

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — It wasn’t perfect, by any means, and he’s still way closer to the bottom of the leader board than the top. But Tiger Woods made eight birdies on Friday, signed for six-under 66 and looked an altogether different golfer than the guy who hacked it around Sherwood on Thursday. “Overall I […]

Tiger Is Done In By Historic Par-5 Stumbles, Shoots Opening 76 In Title Defense

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — Historically speaking, the matchup of Tiger Woods vs. Par 5s has been one-way traffic. Less a battle; more sheer demolition. Woods has feasted on the holes we used to call three-shotters, leading the PGA Tour in par-5 scoring 10 times in his career. On Thursday, the par 5s got some revenge. […]

Tiger Woods Overmatched By Winged Foot In Missing Cut

MAMARONECK, N.Y. — That ridge. That damned, beautiful ridge. It guards the front of Winged Foot’s 18th green like a troll with a toothache. It wrecks rounds. Just ask Tiger Woods. On Thursday, playing his last hole of the day, Woods’ second shot came up just short of it. He flubbed it, then made double. […]

Tiger Woods’ Round Plays In Three Acts, And Last One Was A Real Downer

MAMARONECK, N.Y. — Golf rounds are long, but these are longer. Eighteen at a U.S. Open at Winged Foot, feels like 36 anywhere else. The round has chapters. It ebbs and it flows and then it ebbs again. Take Tiger Woods’ five-hour opening round of this 120th U.S. Open Championship. Five birdies, six bogeys and […]

Tiger Sees Season Come To Frustrating End At The BMW Championship

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — With an unremarkable 23-inch putt for par, this strange 2019-’20 PGA Tour season came to an unspectacular end for Tiger Woods.

Late Triple Sinks Tiger Woods’ Round And Chance At Reaching Tour Championship

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — Tiger Woods is on to Winged Foot. Well, not quite yet.

Struggling With Putter, Tiger Has Frustrating Second Round At The BMW Championship

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — Sometimes, golf taunts. Tiger Woods couldn’t buy a putt all day. When he needed them to drop, they wouldn’t, and he slid well down the leader board at the BMW Championship. And then, when the round was already lost, a long-distance putt found the bottom. Of course. Woods holed a 37-footer […]

Three Late Bogeys Turn Tiger Woods’ Opening Round At The BMW From Solid To Disappointing

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — It felt like a U.S. Open on Thursday at Olympia Fields. One week after Dustin Johnson made golf look video-game easy at The Northern Trust, the BMW Championship offered an entirely different test. The greens were slick, the rough juicy, the wind howling. The lowest anyone got was three under, Hideki […]

NORTON, Mass. — Ahhh. That was more like it. On the final day of the Northern Trust, Tiger Woods finally approached TPC Boston the way the rest of the field had been doing all week, as a course begging for birdies. He made six of them on his front nine Sunday, shooting a blazing five-under […]

Tough Saturday For Tiger Woods And Rory McIlroy In Northern Trust

NORTON, Mass. — The pairing was glitzy. Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. Nineteen major championships and an even 100 PGA Tour wins between them.

Tiger Makes It Into The Weekend At The Northern Trust

NORTON, Mass.—The good news is Tiger Woods will play the weekend here at TPC Boston.

Norton, Massachusetts – Tiger Woods had hardly missed a shot through eight holes at TPC Boston.

PGA Championship 2020: Tiger Woods (67) closes out week at Harding Park on positive note

SAN FRANCISCO — Among the bottomless bucket of clichés, one rings truer than most: Better late than never. Better to shoot something in the 60s on Sunday than something in the 70s, even if you finish your round some 90 minutes before the leaders tee off. Tiger Woods will leave TPC Harding Park and head […]

PGA Championship 2020: Tiger Woods struggles again with his putting as his title hopes slip away

SAN FRANCISCO — Golf frustrates. It vexes, and it perplexes, and no one is immune. Not the beginner, playing for the first time. Not the leader of a tournament, who can always think of two or three shots he wants back. And not Tiger Woods, who has come as close as any to mastering this […]

SAN FRANCISCO—The new putter cooperated on Thursday. It did no such thing on Friday.

PGA Championship 2020: It’s Tiger Woods. It’s a major. Is there any doubt he thinks he can win?

SAN FRANCISCO — The great ones have a knack for persuasion. When an athlete as accomplished as Tiger Woods says something, your first instinct is to believe him.

DUBLIN, Ohio — This was Tiger Woods’ 71st competitive round at Muirfield Village. He has won here five times and seen it in virtually every weather condition. He knows the place inside and out.
