NORTON, Mass. -- Tiger Woods recorded his worst score in his last 10 rounds of the Deutsche Bank Championship on Sunday, shooting a 1-over 72 that left him well off the lead with one round to go at TPC Boston.
The last time he had a score that high here was in the opening round in 2010. Last year, Woods shot in the 60s in all four rounds.
"I didn't play very well today," said Woods, who is 6 under through 54 holes. "I didn't hit it well and didn't make anything."
While others took advantage of playing under lift, clean and place rules after overnight and morning rains softened the golf course, Woods struggled to find his rhythm.
After a birdie on the par-5 second, Woods would make four bogeys over his next 10 holes, including three in a row to open the back nine.
He added two more birdies but they did little to ease Woods' frustration on a day when TPC Boston played nearly three full strokes under par.
Woods also hit just seven fairways and 12 greens and had 31 putts.
"The course is gettable, that's for sure," said Woods, who has a win, two runner-up finishes and a third in his career here. "You could be very aggressive and not have to worry about anything. Just one of those days I had a bad day at the wrong time."
