Tiger struggles in final round

first_imgGREENSBORO, NC (AP):Davis Love III’s long victory drought is over. Tiger Woods will have to wait a while to get another chance.Love won the Wyndham Championship yesterday to become the third-oldest winner in PGA Tour history, while Woods’ season came to an abrupt end.The 51-year-old Love closed with a six-under 64 for a one-stroke victory over Jason Gore.”Any victory now is going to be really sweet when you’re over 50,” Love said.The dominant storyline all week at Sedgefield Country Club was the mere presence of Woods, who needed a victory to earn a spot in the FedEx Cup play-offs opener next week.He was poised to challenge yesterday, starting just two strokes off the lead. But he only had one birdie during his first 10 holes, dropping way off the pace with a triple bogey on the par-4 11th. Woods shot a 70, finished four strokes back and ended at No. 178 in the standings, well outside the cut-off of 125.”I gave myself a chance, and I had all the opportunity in the world today to do it,” Woods said. “I didn’t get it done.”Now comes a break before his next tournament, the Frys.com Open in October in northern California. It’s the first event of the tour’s 2015-16 season.”This is my offseason right now,” he said.last_img read more
