“I just didn’t play well,” Woods said after finishing his third round, according to The New York Post.
“I thought I hit a good tee shot down 2 and ended up in the water, and just never really got any kind of momentum on my side,” Woods reflected.
Woods finished his second round at the PGA Championship with a score of 1-over-par 69 on Friday, according to ESPN.
This was the second tournament the veteran golfer has participated in since his involvement in a roll-over single-car accident in February 2021, according to the New York Post. (RELATED: REPORT: Tiger Woods Thought He Was In Florida After Terrifying Roll-Over Car Crash)
