Woods was blunt in his assessment of his game afterward, saying he “didn’t do anything right” and “didn’t hit a lot of good shots.”
“I just didn’t play well. I didn’t hit the ball very well and I didn’t get the start I needed. I thought I had a good shot off the tee and ended up in the water, and I never had any kind of momentum on my side.”
After the round, Woods wasn’t specific about whether he would complete the major.
“Well, I’m sore. I know for a fact,” she said. “We’ll do some work and see how it goes.”
