Tiger Woods collapses down the stretch, finishes last at Genesis Invitational

Tiger Woods collapses down the stretch, finishes last at Genesis Invitational

After an 18-foot birdie putt at the third he rolled in a 20-footer from the fringe at the fifth, but a bogey at the seventh saw him make the turn even for the day.

"You take those away and I'm near the top of the board".

Tiger Woods wasted a strong start to sit five shots off the pace after the first round.

Woods was nine shots off Kuchar's lead, tied for 45th, after a two-over 73 that included a double-bogey and three-bogeys.

Sixteen players were separated by four shots with 18 holes to play.

About the best thing Tiger Woods could say about his day at the Riviera Country Club on Saturday was that it was over.

The 82-time victor on the PGA Tour has hoisted many a piece of silverware in such ceremonies, but this weekend he seems fated to again play the part of the man handing over the prize and not the one receiving it. Woods is far off the pace at Riviera Country Club after a second-round 73, a middling performance that ensured only that he'll have two more rounds to help kill time before presiding over Sunday's closing ceremony.

Under the circumstances, he was feeling good about his decision to skip next week's WGC Mexico Championship, despite the fact that the elite event promises world ranking points key to the race to qualify for the USA team for the Tokyo Olympics.

The 25-year-old then shared how hard it was for him to be in the entertainment business at such a young age. I just don't want to say something and do the opposite".


Harold Varner III birdied his last two holes for a 69 and was one shot behind, along with Russell Henley (68).

Woods is searching for career win No. 83 on the PGA Tour, which would break his tie with Sam Snead at the top of the all-time wins list.

"Wasn't driving it almost as accurate as I did the first day", said Kuchar, who made the first of his two bogeys at the par-five first.

"I got off to a nice start on the front nine and just didn't hit many good shots on the back nine", the 15-time major champion said after hitting just one of seven fairways on the back nine.

"I won't play a lot more than that just because of the physical toll, and I want to stay out here for just a little bit longer", said the 44-year-old.

"I didn't have a feel for it, I didn't see my lines". That's the way golf is, put it in the past and try to learn from what I did right and wrong.

For the fourth consecutive day, Woods struggled in every aspect of his game. Sung Kang missed a 2-foot putt during a stretch of three straight bogeys. He said he didn't feel he would be prepared properly for the World Golf Championship event next week where he tied for 10th a year ago. Ryan Palmer took six shots to get out of a greenside bunker on No. 14 and made 9.
