Tiger Woods’ worst round ever has put quite the golf ball-sized hole in his pro career score. While Jack Nicklaus felt sorry for Tiger, Dan Jenkins could not help himself and decided to kick Woods while he is down on his game.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, Tiger Woods supported a bullied boy who attempted suicide by writing a heartfelt letter.
The 14-time major champion could not seem to get his game together at the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village on Saturday. Tiger ended the first nine with multiple double bogeys, bringing him to a 42. Tiger Woods worst round was the 18th hole, on which he needed a par in order to avoid his worst score of his professional career. Instead, Tiger finished off a bad day with a quadruple bogey eight on the 18th hole, giving him a score of 85 which beat out his previous worst of 82 at the Phoenix Open earlier this year.
Tiger Woods’ worst round was only one of three rounds in the 80s as a pro, but since he scored in last place he also would play as a single Sunday for the first time ever.
”I’m not only surprised, I feel very bad for him,” tournament host Jack Nicklaus said, according to the Associated Press. ”He’s struggled health-wise. He struggled with his short game earlier in the year. He feels like he’s coming back and then he does this. I don’t have an answer for it, an explanation. I’m sure that he probably doesn’t, either.”
Dan Jenkins did not feel bad at all, and he twisted the knife by congratulating Woods for shooting the writer’s age.
I’ve never shot my age, but congrats to Tiger, who did it today: 85

This isn’t the first time that Jenkins has mocked Tiger for his golf game. Last month, the writer claimed Woods had beaten a bunch of “nobodies” for most of his major wins.
“There’s much more talent at the top (and the bottom) than there was during Woods’ peak years. Woods beat a lot of nobodies to win most of his majors,” Jenkins claimed. “Yeah, there was Phil [Mickelson] and [Ernie] Els around, in and out, but go back and look who was second to him in those majors and tell me where they are now.”
It is possible Tiger Woods will shoot back at Dan Jenkins since the last time the writer criticized him in print he wrote an angry rebuttal in the Players Tribune.
