Well, it was better than Thursday. Tiger Woods at least has that going for him.
After shooting an 80, the worst round of his US Open career, Eldrick responded Friday with a nearly as dreadful six-over 76. He hit two birdies, which was one more than Thursday, but he scattered six more bogeys.
Here’s a look at Friday’s scorecard, courtesy of USOpen.com:
His round didn’t feature any tossed golf clubs like Thursday, but it did start with a tumble on one of Chambers Bay’s many steep hills:
Woods finishes his time at Chambers Bay at a ludicrous 16-over par. Assuming every single golfer playing during the afternoon Friday doesn’t suddenly forget how to move their arms, he will miss the cut at a major for the fifth time in his career and second time in the last three.
The plus-16 is his worst ever score to par at a major through 36 holes. His previous worst was plus-12 at the 2006 US Open.
At the completion of his round, he was tied for 154th place with Lucas Glover, ahead of only one player–Darren Clarke, at plus-17–in the entire field. The continued demise of the former best golfer in the world has officially hit a new low.
