Tiger Woods Beaten By 15-Year-Old As He Flops In US Open Round 1

It’s safe to say that golfer Tiger Woods is going through a bit of a rough patch of form as of late.

Things went from bad to worse for the 39-year-old in the first round of the U.S Open on Thursday as he ended up tied for 152nd place in a field of 156.

Woods shot a whopping 80 and even fell behind 15-year-old amateur Cole Hammer (who shot 77). Talk about a bad day at the office!

Woods – one of the most successful golfers in history, remember – made eight bogeys and a triple bogey in the worst round of his U.S Open career, and the fourth-worst round of his career, ever.

On the 18th hole, Woods shanked a drive and then his ball wound up in a bunker that nobody else in the field visited all day. This shot was especially bad considering nobody involved with the course thought that bunker would be visited by a pro all week.

Woods said:

It’s one of those things, just got to work through it. I’m trying as hard as I can to do it and for some reason I just can’t get the consistency that I’d like to have out there.

Woods’ sharp decline has been quite incredible to watch and many can’t help but wonder if the golfer’s much publicised off-the-field antics have finally caught up with him.
