Bjorn sends Woods packing

MARANA, Ariz. – Turns out, Tiger Woods was his own worst enemy on Wednesday at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Woods birdied No. 18 to send his match with Thomas Bjorn to extra holes. But his tee shot at the first hole strayed right into the sagebrush and Woods needed two shots to advance the ball to the fairway.

Woods’ fourth shot, meanwhile, found the green but was 18 feet away for bogey. Bjorn’s approach had rolled over the green, and he left himself a 12-footer for par.

When Woods missed his bogey putt, he conceded the match to the Dane. It was just the second time Woods had lost in the first round – the other was to Peter O’Malley in 2002.
