He who was at plus one after 36 holes, scored a 77 on Sunday, including 40 on the front nine. This the day after an 82, his worst career round in a major tournament.

The one who has triumphed five times at Augusta has slipped to last place in the table at 304, or 16 strokes above par.

This is his worst career result for a 72-hole tournament.

Woods had a 302 at the Memorial in 2015, where he returned his worst PGA card, an 85, in the third round.

At 48, he is dealing with the aftermath of several operations that have affected his body and limited his participation in PGA tournaments.

Woods continues to attract throngs of fans, wanting a glimpse of the man who has become the face of golf.


Tiger Woods waves to the crowd after his fourth round.

They applaud all his shots and they continue to cheer him on.

Woods has not finished last in a competition since 2020, at the Genesis Invitational.

Sunday’s round was his 100e at Augusta National.

Woods made a triple bogey at the fifth, two holes after being bogeyed. He also lost a stroke on the sixth hole.

Woods was playing with Neal Shipley, the only amateur still in contention.

Shipley concluded at 300, plus 12.

The weather is nice and sunny at Augusta, where Scottie Scheffler has a one-shot lead over Collin Morikawa.

In search of a second Green Jacket after 2022, Scheffler has a priority of two shots ahead of Max Homa.

Morikawa won the PGA Championship in 2020 and the British Open the following year.

Homa has yet to triumph at a major tournament.

Six players at least shared the top spot during the third round.

Scheffler stood out with an eight-foot birdie on the final hole.

Morikawa did not place in the top 10 since the very first tournament of the season, at the beginning of January.

Homa has not recorded a birdie in his last 32 holes.
