Tiger Woods carded a 79 on Saturday at the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance, marking the third-highest score of his PGA TOUR career. Woods carded an 81 in severe winds at the 2002 British Open. He had an 80 as an amateur in the 1994 Nestle Invitational. He also had a 79 at the 2010 Wells Fargo Championship.
But his back-nine 44 was the highest nine-hole score of his career. It included two double bogeys and a triple bogey. The only other time Woods carded three scores of double bogey or higher in the same nine holes came at the 2007 Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard.
Here's a look at Woods' worst 18- and nine-hole scores.
