The golf legend shot 9-over par, falling into a last-place tie heading into the final round on Sunday. He was plus-12 for the tournament.

Needless to say it was a disappointing result after Woods narrowly made the cut by mounting a late rally in the second round on Friday.

Saturday's nightmare round included a triple-bogey on the par-3 6th hole. Tiger was holding his own at 1-over through the first five holes, but the triple was followed by bogeys on six of the next eight holes.

At least some of Woods' struggles appeared to be attributable to injuries. He has sported a noticeably limp since his return at The Masters. During warmups on Saturday, his surgically repaired leg seemed to wobble when he was entering a bunker.

Tiger's first and only birdie of the day came on the 15th hole, at a point when his round was pretty much unsalvageable. He seemed to be taking it in stride, though, playin for laughs after sinking a difficult putt.

But the 15-time major winner may have felt differently afterwards. He declined a press conference, instead meeting with a pool reporter.

Despite the dud and ducking journalists, golf fans and journalists on social media were transfixed by Tiger, per usual.
