Phoenix Open 2015: Tiger Woods shoots worst round of his career


Tiger Woods carded the worst round of his career with an 11-over-par 82 in the second round of this year’s Waste Management Phoenix Open in Arizona.

While Martin Laird led on 10 under, former world No 1 and 14-time major champion Tiger Woods was last in a field of 132 and missed the cut.

Tiger Woods, 39, was playing in his first PGA Tour event of the season.

“I’ve got to keep this in perspective. Sometimes that’s hard to do,” said Tiger Woods, who finished on 13 over.Tiger Woods Phoenix Open 2015 second round

Struggling with his chipping, Tiger Woods carded six bogeys, two double bogeys, a triple bogey and two birdies in his second round at TPC Scottsdale.

His previous worst round was an 81 in the 2002 Open at Muirfield, a round completed in a storm that made scoring difficult.

Tiger Woods, who carded a two-over-par 73 in his opening round, missed much of last season, including the Ryder Cup, after having back surgery in March 2014.

“We all have days like this,” he said.

“Unfortunately mine was in a public forum and a public setting, but we all have days like this and we take the good with the bad.”

Martin Laird, 32, who shot a second straight 66 in wet and windy conditions.

Daniel Berger is two shots behind Martin Laird on eight under, while another tour rookie, Justin Thomas, is third on seven under.

Phil Mickelson, a three-time winner in Phoenix, missed the cut after carding a second-round five-over 76.
