TULSA, Okla. — Tiger Woods has withdrawn from the PGA Championship after 54 holes at Southern Hills Country Club.
The PGA of America told The Associated Press that Woods has withdrawn. Woods had a career-high 79 in the third round Saturday at Southern Hills. He limped his way around in the cold and wind, at one point making five straight bogeys.
This is the first time Woods has withdrawn from a major as a professional. It was his career-worst score at the annual event, according to CNN.
He declined interviews after his round, speaking only to a pool reporter. Woods was asked if he felt as though he would play the final round. All he said was he was sore, he would do some work and see how it went.
Woods has made the cut in the two majors he has played since his right leg was battered in a car crash 15 months ago.
