Tiger Woods is a huge basketball fan, especially the Los Angeles Lakers, so the world No. 1 knows that triple doubles are good statistics.
Not so in golf. Woods made his third double-bogey 6 at the par-4 first hole this week on Sunday to fall out of the lead. Woods has yet to find the fairway on the 448-yard hole in four attempts, and for the third time this week, he hit his tee shot left. He hit trees twice before finally reaching the green in five strokes. He holed a short putt for the 6.
For the championship, Woods played the first hole in five over par (21 strokes). If he pars the par-5 13th hole today, he will have played that hole in 21 strokes (two eagles, a bogey and a par).
