Tiger Woods had his worst event as a professional golfer Sunday, August 8 at the 2010 World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational at the Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio. Tiger Woods shot 18 over par and finished the final round with 77.
In Tiger Woods’ last 11 appearances at the Firestone Country Club, Woods has won seven times and has never finished worse than a tie for fifth.
“Shooting 18-under par is not fun,” Woods said afterward. “I don’t see how it can be fun shooting 18 over, especially since my handicap is supposed to be zero. … It’s tough. Yeah, it’s tough.”
“The only thing I can say all week is I was patient, and unfortunately that’s not enough,” he said.
Tiger Woods is said to be immediately leaving for Wisconsin after his horrible performance today. The last major championship of the year, the PGA Championship, begins Thursday at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.
Even though some downtime after a bad performance might be in order, it sounds like Woods plans to get in some practice at the venue north of Milwaukee.
“I’m out there today,” he said, speaking of traveling to Wisconsin today. “I could probably play and still watch the guys finish [the Bridgestone].”
Sean O’Hair currently leads the 2010 Bridgestone Invitational shooting 11 under par.
