Tiger Tracker: Shot-by-shot recap of Tiger Woods' Sunday 70

Tiger Woods was a non-factor all week.

The 42-year-old closed in 1-under 70 at The Northern Trust to get in the clubhouse at 4 under overall. He’s currently T-41, which means he’s looking at a top 40 at best.

Not the best week for Woods, and it really could’ve been so much better. But one T-41 (or thereabouts) finish is far from the end of the world, Tiger fans.

Catch up with Woods’ final round, shot by shot, below:

Hole No. 18: Par 4, 470 yards

OFF THE TEE (1:40 p.m. ET): That driver is roped down the left side of the fairway. That’s 11/14 fairways on the day, mostly hitting driver.

APPROACH SHOT (1:45 p.m. ET): A solid approach here to 12 feet. Could be a closing birdie.

ON THE GREEN (1:50 p.m. ET): Tiger misses, rolling this 2 feet by. He cleans up for par. Really, this was just a very uneventful week for Woods. The driver looked great, which is a really positive development. But he has to hope his work with the flatstick this week was just an anomaly or something that can be figured out. He left a lot of opportunities out there with the way he drove it.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1-under 70 (4 under overall, T-41)

Hole No. 17: Par 5, 581 yards

OFF THE TEE (1:25 p.m. ET): Driver down the right side of the fairway here and that is perfect. Beautiful swing.

APPROACH SHOT (1:29 p.m. ET): That one is just OK. This ball ends up short and right in the rough, leaving a 20-yard pitch.

AROUND THE GREEN (1:32 p.m. ET): Terrible. Tiger lands this short of the hole, but it has no breaks. This races and races and races some 40 feet past all the way into the rough. That was bad.

AROUND THE GREEN (1:36 p.m. ET): He chips that one back to a foot beyond the cup. OK, so he’ll get away with a par here. After that drive, though, he missed a nice birdie chance.

ON THE GREEN (1:37 p.m. ET): Yes, par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 17 (4 under overall, T-42)

Hole No. 16: Par 4, 431 yards

OFF THE TEE (1:13 p.m. ET): Driver boomed down the middle here, good stuff.

APPROACH SHOT (1:17 p.m. ET): This is 9-iron from 143 yards and this is a solid one that finishes 15 feet left of the flag.

ON THE GREEN (1:22 p.m. ET): Tiger rammed that 4 feet by but does get the comebacker to drop in the left side. A ho-hum par in the end.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 16 (4 under overall, T-41)

Hole No. 15: Par 3, 155 yards

OFF THE TEE (1:03 p.m. ET): Yikes. That is a pull with a pitching wedge into the left rough. Terrible miss, as this pin is back-left and the rough is below the level of the green. This will be a very difficult uphill, short-sided chip from below the level of the green.

AROUND THE GREEN (1:07 p.m. ET): Just the one place you can’t miss on this hole. He tried a huge flop that had to land just on the green and take a slope all the way to the hole. This lands on the fringe/light rough and stays there. Two more yards and this shot is close to the hole. But there was so little margin for error there. He’ll putt this, but this will be a blazing fast 30-footer for par from fringe/light rough.

AROUND THE GREEN (1:09 p.m. ET): ALMOST! A great putt that Tiger just gets started and it takes that slope. The ball takes the left-to-right break and goes right toward the cup but grazes the left edge and trickled by about a foot. Nearly a miracle par save. But this will be bogey.

ON THE GREEN (1:11 p.m. ET): Indeed, a bogey. His first in 33 holes.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 15 (4 under overall, T-43)

Hole No. 14: Par 4, 416 yards

OFF THE TEE (12:53 p.m. ET): Didn’t quite see the club off the tee, but Tiger does find the right side of the fairway here. He’s now 8/11 on fairways hit today.

APPROACH SHOT (12:57 p.m. ET): That’s a pitching wedge from 135 yards and it is a beauty. Gets this to check up about 5-6 feet right of the pin. Can he finally make a BIRDIE putt?

ON THE GREEN (1 p.m. ET): YESSSSS!! He actually made a birdie putt! That actually kind of barely dropped in the right side, but it went in so who cares. That’s two straight made putts, which is like a record for him this week.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 under through 14 (5 under overall, T-36)

Hole No. 13: Par 5, 612 yards

OFF THE TEE (12:31 p.m. ET): This is a driver quite a bit right, similar to yesterday here. So he’ll obviously have to lay up from here.

SECOND SHOT (12:38 p.m. ET): Tiger indeed lays up from the rough. Honestly, we’re not sure where that went, though. Maybe back in the fairway, but not totally sure.

THIRD SHOT (12:42 p.m. ET): Tiger was in the fairway … the 14th fairway. That’s where he had to lay up too. It left him 166 yards and this one is short. The ball lands and finishes in rough some 35-40 feet short of the pin. Could be a nasty lie, so we’ll see on up-and-down chances.

AROUND THE GREEN (12:45 p.m. ET): That is pretty poor. Tiger hates it as this one gets caught up too quickly and this chip ends up 10 feet short. He needs to make that to remain bogey-free.

ON THE GREEN (12:47 p.m. ET): LOL. Tiger can’t make a birdie putt all day, but when it’s for par it drops. That one falls in the left side. Good save, but man he could’ve used that stroke a lot more this week.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 13 (4 under overall, T-42)

Hole No. 12: Par 4, 279 yards

OFF THE TEE (12:19 p.m. ET): Tiger takes what looks to be a 5-wood, and this one is well right. He slipped out of it, this seemed. That ends up right of the green in the rough. A little short-sided, but that’s actually the good miss. If the lie is OK, this is a very doable up and down for birdie.

AROUND THE GREEN (12:24 p.m. ET): That was actually way down there in the rough, which made this a tough shot. Tiger plays a high one that lands about 10 feet past the cup and rolls to 15 feet from the hole. It seemed he was playing the ball to come off a slope and trickle closer, but it stays. A 15-footer for birdie, a slippery one too.

ON THE GREEN (12:27 p.m. ET): This is getting cruel. That was on a great line the whole way and looked like it would drop in the right side of the cup. But it peels off right at the last second and just falls under the right lip. Agonizing miss, another par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 12 (4 under overall, T-42)

Hole No. 11: Par 3, 224 yards

OFF THE TEE (12:07 p.m. ET): That is a beauty! Tiger lands this about 20 feet below the flag and slightly right and this one runs out and finishes 8 feet past the flag. That’ll be his best birdie look since the fifth. Now … can he take advantage?

ON THE GREEN (12:14 p.m. ET): And he lips that one out. Terrific… Seriously, that putter has been so frustrating.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 11 (4 under overall, T-41)

Hole No. 10: Par 4, 485 yards

OFF THE TEE (11:58 a.m. ET): A nice driver blasted down the right side of the fairway. Yep, the big stick has seen a huge turnaround this week. That has been the one BIG good sign this week.

APPROACH SHOT (12:01 p.m. ET): A 7-iron from 189 yards, and this comes up short. The ball finishes about 5 yards in front of the green in the fairway. Honestly, that’s not a bad miss at all. Should be pretty easy to make par from there.

AROUND THE GREEN (12:04 p.m. ET): He putts this, and as we said: simple. This is lagged a foot short of the cup.

ON THE GREEN (12:05 p.m. ET): Tiger finishes off his par with that tap-in.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 10 (4 under overall, T-42)

Hole No. 9: Par 4, 468 yards

OFF THE TEE (11:42 a.m. ET): Another driver and this cuts perfectly into the left side of a narrow part of the fairway. If Tiger hits the driver even close to this well in general going forward, watch out.

APPROACH SHOT (11:48 a.m. ET): That one was dangerously right, but it does turn out OK. This one finishes in light rough about 15 feet right of the back-right pin. Should be able to putt that. But he squandered a chance to get this approach close.

AROUND THE GREEN (11:51 a.m. ET): That was rude. Tiger putts that and that ball was tracking toward the right side of the cup, hits it and rims out. That very well could’ve dropped for birdie. Instead, it’ll be a tap-in par.

ON THE GREEN (11:53 a.m. ET): Indeed, a tap-in par. Tiger is out in 1-under 34. Putter hasn’t been as bad as last two days, but a similar story in some birdie opportunities and missing almost all of them.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 9 (4 under overall, T-45)

Hole No. 8: Par 4, 473 yards

OFF THE TEE (11:28 a.m. ET): This is a pretty driver down the right-center. Again, he’s killing it with that club.

APPROACH SHOT (11:34 a.m. ET): This is hung out to the right a bit but is just fine. This is a safe play and a slope allows this to trickle about 10 feet left of where it landed. He’ll have 25-ish feet for birdie overall.

ON THE GREEN (11:39 a.m. ET): Another good putt, but another close miss. That had just too little pace for that line as that right-to-lefter dives under the hole and finishes inches left. A tap-in par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 8 (4 under overall, T-45)

Hole No. 7: Par 4, 489 yards

OFF THE TEE (11:15 a.m. ET): A driver for TW and he leans right and yells for it to get down. The ball does as this cut lands in the right side of the fairway but only bounds a few yards forward and ends in the fairway. Good stuff. If that takes a hard hop, it would’ve jumped into a fairway bunker.

APPROACH SHOT (11:20 a.m. ET): Pretty solid. This one lands just below pin-high and a bit left of the pin, hops a bit forward and finishes about 15-20 feet left of the flag.

ON THE GREEN (11:24 a.m. ET): Dead on line, but short. That was frustrating, as that was a well-struck left-to-righter that was on line the whole way but came up 6 inches short of dropping. He taps in for par, but that’s more frustration with the putter.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 7 (4 under overall, T-46)

Hole No. 6: Par 3, 215 yards

OFF THE TEE (11:04 a.m. ET): He calls for that one to go in order to get back to that flag, and it doesn’t. Still, this ball ends up finishing about 30 feet left and below the flag, so that is harmless.

ON THE GREEN (11:11 a.m. ET): He lags this about a foot short of the cup and taps in for par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 6 (4 under overall, T-45)

Hole No. 5: Par 4, 444 yards

OFF THE TEE (10:49 a.m. ET): Tiger takes driver … and this is a pretty cut that finishes in the right side of the fairway. That was pretty much ideal.

APPROACH SHOT (10:55 a.m. ET): Fantastic shot. Tiger plays this one 10 feet left of the flag in order to get it to kick off a slope and funnel toward the hole. That works out perfectly, as it does just that and this ball finishes about 4 feet from the cup. That will be a VERY good birdie look.

ON THE GREEN (11 a.m. ET): Wow. His putting continues to fail him. That started just right of the cup and stayed there. It never touched the hole. That is a brutal miss considering how close that second shot was.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 5 (4 under overall, T-46)

Hole No. 4: Par 4, 444 yards

OFF THE TEE (10:37 a.m. ET): A nice fairway wood down the right side of the fairway. Pretty one there.

APPROACH SHOT (10:42 a.m. ET): This is a nice one from 185 yards that is just a little too far. This lands inside 10 feet beyond the pin and hops forward and finishes about 25 feet beyond the cup. That should be a simple two-putt par. He was posing on it, though, like this would be inside 10 feet.

ON THE GREEN (10:48 a.m. ET): That actually reached the back fringe, but Tiger rolls this putt to finish about 18 inches right and below the hole. He taps in for par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 4 (4 under overall, T-44)

Hole No. 3: Par 5, 607 yards

OFF THE TEE (10:20 a.m. ET): This is a nice driver from Tiger! This one finishes in the right side of the fairway and he could be in business to go for this in two.

APPROACH SHOT (10:26 a.m. ET): So, he kind of went for the green here. From 300 yards, Tiger takes out a 5-wood and plays this to finish just in front of the green. He does so quite fine as this ball finishes in the left side of the fairway some 20 yards before the green. That will leave a pretty simple pitch from 30-40 yards.

AROUND THE GREEN (10:30 a.m. ET): That was very, very poor. Some mud on this ball, but that’s no excuse. He had to fly this well over a ridge below the hole to get this close and he barely landed it over the ridge and it stopped and came back down. That leaves him some 30 feet over a ridge for birdie. Very poor after two great shots to start this hole.

ON THE GREEN (10:33 a.m. ET): Man, great putt and so close. That was actually almost 45 feet and he had it right on line but just needed six inches more of speed. This one needed 2-3 more revolutions to drop. Still, that was no gimme two-putt, so that was nice. Easy par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 3 (4 under overall, T-44)

Hole No. 2: Par 3, 172 yards

OFF THE TEE (10:14 a.m. ET): This is a good one! Tiger lands this one about 15 feet left of the cup and this one trickles right and finishes about 8 feet left of the cup. This is a great birdie look here!

ON THE GREEN (10:18 a.m. ET): Got it! That one was slippery and he trickled it to the hole, but he did so perfectly. That trickles right to the hole and drops for birdie. A nice start.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under through 2 (4 under overall, T-42)

Hole No. 1: Par 4, 388 yards

OFF THE TEE (10 a.m. ET): Tiger gets aggressive off this first tee by going driver, and for a rare time this week the big stick fails him. This one goes well left and lands in the gallery. It appeared to stay in the gallery, which would be a break as he would be in trampled down rough.

APPROACH SHOT (10:06 a.m. ET): That ball actually ended up in deep rough to the right of the gallery. Tiger is worried quickly after contact as this flies out. The ball lands near the back of the green but actually grabs and spins back a bit. This one finishes about 25 feet beyond the cup.

ON THE GREEN (10:10 a.m. ET): Tiger lags this one about 18 inches short of the cup. He cleans up for par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even through 1 (3 under overall, T-50)

Pre-round

Tiger tees off at 10 a.m. ET. But before he does, apparently he’s hearing trash talk from Phil Mickelson…
