It was another sad capitulation for Tiger Woods at the US Open. After his bogey on the first, you sensed it would be a long old hack for the former world No.1.
He eventually carded an 80 in his first round at Chambers Bay, his worst in the tournament and second-highest in a major. Here 19th hole reveal his first round by numbers.
15 – shots off the lead held by Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson.
9 – bogeys or worse, including a triple-bogey seven on the 14th.
152 – round leaves him in a tie for 152nd place, with only two players having fared worse on day one.
105 – width of the 13th fairway at Chambers Bay in yards, the widest in US Open history; Woods missed it.
80s – third score in the 80s in last 15 rounds of golf; he shot just one 80+ round from 1996-2014.
195 – current world ranking.
27 – majors played since Woods won the last of his 14 in 2008.
81 – Woods’ worst round at a major, at the Open Championship in 2002.
302 – worst four-round total of his career, which also included a career-worst 85, recorded on his last outing at the Memorial Tournament earlier this month.
