Tiger Woods ’ British Open run ends with a whimper . PORTRUSH, Northern Ireland — It ’s difficult to believe it ’s been just three months since Tiger Woods won the Masters. Conventional wisdom after Woods ’ historic win in April at Augusta was his 15th career major championship might free him

Woods has played the 15th hole 79 times since his first Masters appearance in 1995, and his worst score was a triple bogey 8. He has a knack for wielding his wedges and putter like Woods mentioned Ben Hogan, who in 1949 was driving a car that collided head-on with a Greyhound bus.


MEDINAH, Ill. - It wasn't supposed to end this way.

Not after slipping the green jacket over his red shirt on Masters Sunday in April. Not after he looked so powerful, so confident, so healthy among the stately Georgia pines as he won his 15 th major and first in 11 years. Not after expectations reached a zenith, especially the renewed countdown to catching Jack Nicklaus and his record 18 majors.

No, Tiger Woods' year wasn't supposed to end with a whimper.

Tiger Woods withdraws from the Northern Trust

Tiger Woods withdraws from the Northern Trust Tiger Woods, who shot an uninspiring first-round 75 at The Northern Trust on Thursday, is not coming back for his second round on Friday.

Now, you may have thought we were building up to one big, final pop culture reference that would leave the others in the dust…but nah. We prefer to end this section with a whimper . Pretentious Factor. If you were to drop this quote at a dinner party, would you get an in-unison "awww" or would

It has been a while since I’ve posted and I figure it ’s probably time to explain what happened with regards to the attempts by Gaijin Entertainment to However, it ended not with a bang but with a whimper . The fight was over in November of 2013 and I could have written about it then but decided

But Sunday at the soggy No. 3 course at Medinah Country Club, where he won two of his 15 majors back in the day, Woods bid adieu to a season that turned forgettable after he pulled off one of the most remarkable victories, not only in golf, but in all of sport.

In the final round of the BMW Championship, Woods wasn't bothered by discomfort from his fused spine but nonetheless ached as his play left him wanting. In need of a bagful of birdies, Woods struggled to make pars en route to an ordinary, even-par 72 that left him well behind the leaders and sent him home to Florida instead of to the season-ending Tour Championship in Atlanta as one of the top 30 in the FedEx Cup standings.

"It's disappointing," Woods said of not being able to defend his title next week in the Tour Championship. It was at East Lake last year where he walked toward the green of the 72nd hole trailed by thousands of people in the fairway, a swarm that nearly swallowed him up. The win was the 80 th of his career, first since 2013, and capped his remarkable return to the game last season.

Didn't see Tiger's withdrawal coming? You should have

Didn't see Tiger's withdrawal coming? You should have Tiger Woods withdrew from The Northern Trust on Friday. The reasoning was a new one, but the act itself shouldn't have come as a surprise.

"Last year culminated in a pretty special moment for me and it would have been nice to go back there, but I'll be watching the guys on TV," he said.

This season culminated at the BMW Championship, which was just his sixth start since winning the Masters. With missed cuts in the PGA Championship and the British Open and a WD from last week's Northern Trust after the first round, Woods played just 17 rounds in four months and was never in contention as the rest of the season was marked by back pain and long absences from the game.

But his disappointment and pain are soothed by the memory of winning in April at Augusta National.

"Very special to win my 15th major and get my fifth jacket," Woods said when asked to assess his season. "Those are special moments. The rest of the tournaments I didn't really play as well as I wanted to but at the end of the day, I'm the one with the green jacket."

That's what Joe LaCava, Woods' caddie, told his boss as they walked off the green of the 18 th hole. It's the reason LaCava graded the season an A-, for the victory at Augusta National outshined all the dark days.

The first season of AMC’s Preacher ended Sunday night and to say it was a mixed bag would be an understatement. At times, the show reached new heights for craziness and violence on All that said, looking back at the whole the first season of Preacher as a whole, you have to think it was a success.

The first season of CBS American television drama series Unforgettable premiered on September 20, 2011 and concluded on May 8, 2012, with a total of 22 episodes. It aired on Tuesdays at 10:00 pm. Former Syracuse, New York, police detective Carrie Wells has hyperthymesia

"I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed with the second half of the season," LaCava said. "Tiger would tell you the same thing. Unfortunately, and I know his short game wasn't good, but we're about a week from contending again and possibly winning because his swing was coming around, and he was hitting the shots he wants to hit. He was as healthy this week as I've seen him in a while.

"I know his health is going to be a mystery going forward because backs are funny. But I saw more energy this week and I see him physically better so I'm looking forward to next year. By the time we come around to next year he'll be refocused, and he'll get ready and get after it."

Before 2020 arrives, Woods will captain the USA in the Presidents Cup in December in Australia and is scheduled to play the ZoZo Championship in Japan the third week of October. He'll host the Hero World Challenge the week before heading to the land Down Under.

He's looking forward to all three, for after Sunday's round, Woods certainly didn't sound like a man who thinks his Masters triumph was his swan song. The competitive fire still resides inside, and he'll make sure he'll do everything he can to defend his Masters title next year.

"Right now, the most important thing is fitness for sure," Woods said. "Keep going the way I'm going right now because I need to get a little bit stronger in certain body parts. Activate different areas. I need to get those parts stronger for sure and then start building up my game for Japan."

And hopefully, his back willing, beyond.
