Tiger Woods finishes last at Riviera after 77

Tournament host Tiger Woods finished dead last at the Genesis Invitational at 11 over following a final-round 77 Sunday. Moving on from a depressing week at Riviera and looking ahead to where we might go from here.

He went out on the back in 38 and came home on the front in 39 – with an eagle! Things really got out of hand late, when he played Nos. 4-8 in 5 over as he was walking his way into the clubhouse.

There was some ping-ponging at No. 6 and a number of missed 7-footers, his favorite distance this weekend.

“Well, I did not do much well today,” he said. “Good news, I hit every ball forward, not backwards, a couple sideways. But overall, I’m done.”

He was also questioned if a weekend like this bothers him a little less than it used to, which provided an interesting look at how he views this post-fusion chapter of his career

“Well, considering the fact that I look at it – that this part of my career really didn’t exist a few years ago. So to be able to do that no matter what I shoot – it’s still disappointing, it’s still frustrating, I’m still a little ticked – but I also look at it from a perspective which I didn’t do most of my career. I have a chance to play going down the road. A few years ago, that wasn’t the case.”

The last time Tiger ended dead last after making the cut as at the 2015 Memorial, the week he shot a Saturday 85 at Muirfield Village.

Woods’ Sunday night in LA will consist of tying up a few more loose ends that come with being tournament host, and then he’ll be off for at least one week.

He didn’t commit to next week’s WGC-Mexico Championship — “I just felt I wasn’t going to be ready for next week,” he said Saturday — and his next start will likely be either The Honda Classic (Feb. 27-March 1) or the Arnold Palmer Invitational (March 5-8).

It’s possible he could skip both and make his next start at the Players Championship on March 12, but it’s likely he’ll tee it up at least once prior to TPC Sawgrass.
