Par 5s prove fruitless for Tiger

CARMEL, Ind. --- Tiger Woods has three holes left in his final round of the BMW Championship and remains three shots off the lead held by Rory McIlroy. If he comes up short on Sunday, part of the blame will fall on his failure to birdie any of the four par-5 holes at Crooked Stick.

Woods was 9 under on the par 5s through the first three rounds. He birdied all of the par 5s in the first round, three in the second round and two in the third round.

On Sunday, here’s how he played the par 5s

Fifth hole – Found the rough with his tee shot and had to lay up with his second. Missed an 12-foot birdie putt

Ninth hole – Found the greenside bunker with his second shot and missed a 14-foot birdie putt

11th hole – Found the rough with his tee shot and had to lay up with his second. Missed a 13-foot birdie putt

15th hole – Found the rough with his tee shot and had to lay up with his second. Missed a birdie putt from inside 7 feet.
