Tiger Woods Fails to Break Par at AT&T
Not once all week at the AT&T National.
For only the fourth time (excluding major championships) in his PGA Tour career, Woods did not post a singe round under par during tournament week, finishing play Sunday at Aronimink Golf Club 4-over and way, way down the leaderboard.
Woods' scorecard of 73-70-70-71--284 on the par-70 course was the first PGA Tour event since the 1999 Arnold Palmer Invitational that he failed to post at least one under-par round during a tournament week.
Including majors, it is the ninth time as a pro he could not bust par.
Still, the tournament host continued to insist that he is not discouraged as he continues his comeback from an extended leave and prepares for the British Open.
"I'm really excited," he said. "I've driven the ball better this week than I have in a very long time. It's fun to hit the driver that way. I hit driver as many times as I possibly could because it felt so good. I just wanted to keep hitting it. That hasn't been the case lately. So it was nice to get back dialed in and obviously need to get my putter working a little bit better and get rolling. "
