Tiger Woods fails to record birdie in final round for first time since 2014

The general tone of Tiger Woods’ 2018 comeback has been positive. But on Sunday, he did something he hasn’t done in four years — and it wasn’t a positive.

Woods fired a 3-over 74 during Sunday’s final round of the Wells Fargo Championship. He made three bogeys and no birdies. This marks the first time Woods completed a final round without a birdie since 2014.

The positive for Tiger this week is that while he never contended, he did make the cut. The more he plays, the sharper he’ll get. Woods will also get right back on the horse next week at The Players Championship, an event he’s won twice.

But certainly, Tiger’s Sunday should serve as a reminder. While a lot of progress has been made in his return, Woods still has a lot of work to do.
