Tiger Woods struggles as bogeys slow his comeback

He was right in it after two rounds, but a Saturday 75 dropped him well back of the lead, and Rickie Fowler has spent Sunday birdying literally all the damn holes, so Tiger is out of it. That is different animal, but given the way he looks now, the rhythm of his swing looks good, he's not jumping off the ground trying to hit it and he's generating some power.

Perhaps the biggest positives were the way Woods drove the ball and his ability to make a few clutch putts. Two more bogeys on the sixth and seventh put him four over for the day as his challenge threatened to unravel, and a further bogey on the 10th further deepened the gloom.

Woods himself admitted earlier in the week that the final standings do not matter much this week, especially after a fourth back surgery in April, a DUI arrest that stemmed from pain medications in May and then a rehab stint to try and get that under control.

"At that time I've already played four par-fives and nothing happened".

In fact, both Northern Ireland and Scotland voted to remain in the European Union by margins of 55.8% and 62% respectively. Tusk told Varadkar that the bloc is "fully behind you and your request that there should be no hard border".

So hitting 7 out of 13 fairways, 12 out of 18 greens and needing 28 putts was a solid performance, even on a relatively benign Albany Golf Club course that saw 15 of the 18 players break par. "We took care of that and kept it rolling".

Woods shot a 76 in the final round previous year, which left a bitter taste even after a showing in which he led the field in birdies. The third-round scoring average was 72.88 - more than three strokes higher than in the opening two rounds.

"I really didn't feel like I was that far off, that's the insane part", he said.

The golf superstar has made only a handful of appearances in the past two years after back problems forced him to miss the entire 2015-2016 season and despite the frustrations of Saturday's round Woods said he was enjoying his return. I've missed the fight.
