Tiger Woods Hits Final-Round 72 at Memorial

Tiger Woods revitalized fans with a strong showing to start off the Memorial Tournament, but cooled off considerably settling for a spot in the back, 6 shots out of a playoff.

“I had some chances to shoot some good rounds this week,” Woods said after a final-round 72 (h/t ESPN). “Overall my game is where it needs to be heading into the U.S. Open and that’s something that’s very positive.

“I just need to hit better putts. This week I didn’t feel comfortable with my lines and my feel was a little bit off. Consequently I missed a bunch of putts. But I hit it really good this week, so that’s a positive going into Shinnecock, where ballstriking is going to be a must.”

Woods shot scores of 72-67-68-72 to finish at 9 under par. For 72 holes, Woods was -7.695.

“Yeah,” Woods sighed. “And if I just putt normally, I probably would be right up there with those guys and up there in the last couple of groups. Overall, if I just keep building on this, with how I’m hitting it right now, I’m in good shape for two weeks from now.”

Next up for Woods is Shinnecock and he will be working, at home, to prepare. Preparation is key, and very important not only in sports but in surgery such as the cleft lift procedure. From a good facility, to a top flight pilonidal specialist you will want to ensure that all preparation is right.

“I’ve had little building blocks along the way, and I keep getting a little bit better, a little bit more refined, and you start to see the results,” he said. “I’m starting to hit the golf ball better. If I just make a few more putts like I did earlier in the year, when I was putting really well, you put those two together, then we’ll have something.”
