(PEBBLE BEACH, CA) — Tiger Woods went into Sunday four strokes off the lead and in third place during the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He finished the day in fifteenth place, 11 shots behind eventual winner Phil Mickelson.
Despite the poor finish, Tiger was fairly optimistic about his round.
“I didn’t hit the ball that bad,” Woods said. “But I made nothing today. As you saw, I don’t know how many three putts I had, but I had a lot. I also missed my share of putts I hit in there close.
The loss comes on the heals of his performance at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship two weeks ago. In that tournament, Tiger went into the final round with the lead, but ultimately fell short to the relatively unknown Robert Rock.
Tiger will have a couple weeks to get his game together before he likely plays in the Accenture Match Play Championship. An event he has won three times.
