Players Championship: Tiger Woods gets redemption at No. 17 Saturday, shoots 72

For how bad his front nine was, that’s how entertaining the back nine was for Tiger Woods Saturday at The Players Championship.

Woods couldn’t buy a putt for most of his round, especially on the first nine holes which he played 3-over par. Woods then took to the back nine where he started to pick up the pace with his putter and approach shots.

The two-time Players champion made his first birdie of the day at No. 12, a driveable par-4. Woods found the green, missed his eagle putt, and tapped in for birdie. After struggling on par-5’s all day, he finally got a birdie on the par-5 16th hole, taking some momentum to the infamous island green at No. 17.

After making quadruple-bogey on Friday, Woods got some redemption from the par-3 17th hole, making a birdie after sticking the tee shot within a few feet of the cup. He and his playing partner, Kevin Na, shared a fun moment on the green after both players struggled all afternoon.

Woods earned a par on the final hole to wrap an up-and-down even par 72, walking off the course 3-under for the tournament in a tie for 41st place.
