Shot-by-shot recap of Tiger Woods' final-round 67

By

Tiger Woods closed his week in fine fashion at Torrey Pines’ South Course.

A hot back nine meant a final-round 5-under 67 at the Farmers Insurance Open. That afforded a 10-under total and a jump of 29 spots to T-19.

This wasn’t Woods’ best week, but there was plenty to like. Specifically his final nine holes and the fact he didn’t really have it this week and still is eyeing a top-20 finish.

Anyway, we followed his final round shot by shot. Catch up below…

Hole No. 9: Par 5, 599 yards

OFF THE TEE (4:17 p.m. ET): His final drive of the week is smashed down the left side of the fairway. He can absolutely go for the green in two from there.

APPROACH SHOT (4:21 p.m. ET): It’s a 3-wood and that was terrific. That lands just short and right of the green and hops forward, running out to 30-35 feet past the pin. He’ll have that left for eagle down the hill. Should be a closing two-putt birdie.

ON THE GREEN (4:29 p.m. ET): The eagle putt … he had to be careful and it was never enough. But that is a fine lag to 18 inches short of the cup. He taps in for a closing birdie. A great final-nine 31!

TIGER ON THE DAY: 5-under 67 (10 under overall, T-19)

Hole No. 8: Par 3, 177 yards

OFF THE TEE (4:09 p.m. ET): He fires this one about 10 feet past the pin. That is pretty, we could get that birdie we wanted two holes ago after all.

ON THE GREEN (4:13 p.m. ET): He avenges that mess at No. 6! Tiger buries this birdie putt for his fourth on the back nine. If he can birdie the closing par 5, he finishes his round birdie-birdie for the second straight day and fires 67.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 4 under thru 17 (9 under overall, T-27)

Hole No. 7: Par 4, 457 yards

OFF THE TEE (3:55 p.m. ET): Tiger fires a driver down the left side of the fairway here. Good job not to let last hole linger, even if we can’t get that three-putt out of our minds.

APPROACH SHOT (4 p.m. ET): Good contact, but poor execution. This one was on a great line but flies a good club to far. This ball lands on the back of the green, hops to the back intermediate rough and stays there. The pin is in front, so he has a good 50+ feet there for birdie. That looked spinny, so if he lands this even a couple yards shorter, he might be within 20 feet of the cup.

AROUND THE GREEN (4:02 p.m. ET): Tiger is able to cozy that down close to the cup. This will be a tap-in par.

ON THE GREEN (4:04 p.m. ET): Indeed, a par here.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 under thru 16 (8 under overall, T-31)

Hole No. 6: Par 5, 572 yards

OFF THE TEE (3:35 p.m. ET): Long wait here, but Tiger doesn’t seem to mind as he finds the right side of the fairway. He will be able to go for this green in two.

APPROACH SHOT (3:40 p.m. ET): Man, really wish TW could’ve played like this all week. Tiger hits a beautiful high cut with a fairway wood from 271 yards, and this ball reaches the back tier and finishes some 30 feet from the hole. His ball is on the same tier as the pin, so this should be a smooth eagle putt. You’d think birdie at worst here.

ON THE GREEN (3:49 p.m. ET): Yeesh, he put that first putt a good 4 feet by the hole. Pretty unnecessary. And then he lips out the comebacker. What a terrible unforced three-putt. That was a pretty simple 35-footer to lag up there for birdie. He actually had to make a 3-foot comebacker for par. He does just that, but it’s a bad par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 under thru 15 (8 under overall, T-30)

Hole No. 5: Par 4, 463 yards

OFF THE TEE (3:13 p.m. ET): He fires this one right down the fairway. That’s nicely done.

APPROACH SHOT (3:20 p.m. ET): Oh yeah! Tiger lands this one 15 feet left and below the cup on purpose as he uses sidespin and slope to get this ball to curl toward the cup and finish 3 feet past the hole. A near tap-in for birdie here.

ON THE GREEN (3:23 p.m. ET): Yep, no problem. That’s three birdies in his last four holes. The other hole produced a great par save. If only he could’ve played his whole week like this stretch.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 under thru 14 (8 under overall, T-29)

Hole No. 4: Par 4, 461 yards

OFF THE TEE (2:56 p.m. ET): This drive goes left. It is in the rough. Not what you want there.

APPROACH SHOT (3:01 p.m. ET): Ugh. This one is short and left and doesn’t even reach the greenside bunker. He’s short-sided to the left pin too. This would be an unreal up and down if he can get it.

AROUND THE GREEN (3:08 p.m. ET): He does really well from over here. Tiger gets this one to finish within 10 feet of the cup. That’s about as good as he could do from over there.

ON THE GREEN (3:10 p.m. ET): Wow, what save! Tiger walks that in, as he curls in that left-to-righter dead center. That’s a really impressive par save.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 under thru 13 (7 under overall, T-32)

Hole No. 3: Par 3, 193 yards

OFF THE TEE (2:45 p.m. ET): Tiger fires one right over this pin, leaving himself about 15 feet down the hill for birdie.

ON THE GREEN (2:51 p.m. ET): Got it! That’s back-to-back birdies. Way too late, but now we’re cooking.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 under thru 12 (7 under overall, T-32)

Hole No. 2: Par 4, 395 yards

OFF THE TEE (2:31 p.m. ET): Tiger hits this driver a little left, but the ball finishes in the intermediate cut.

APPROACH SHOT (2:37 p.m. ET): He fires that one in to about 12 feet. That will leave him a solid birdie look.

ON THE GREEN (2:42 p.m. ET): He drains that birdie putt! That was a textbook birdie here.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under thru 11 (6 under overall, T-39)

Hole No. 1: Par 4, 451 yards

OFF THE TEE (2:13 p.m. ET): This one gets lost left into a fairway bunker. No good.

APPROACH SHOT (2:20 p.m. ET): He hits a solid shot from that bunker, as this ball finishes about 35 feet left of the cup. Probably another two-putt par though.

ON THE GREEN (2:26 p.m. ET): Indeed, a two-putt par. Tiger lags to 2.5 feet and cleans up from there.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even par thru 10 (5 under overall, T-43)

Hole No. 18: Par 5, 545 yards

OFF THE TEE (1:56 p.m. ET): Tiger loses this one left off the tee. This will be a lay up.

SECOND SHOT (2:01 p.m. ET): He indeed lays up here. Back into the fairway and will have a wedge in.

THIRD SHOT (2:05 p.m. ET): This is pretty nice as Tiger spins this to about 8 feet.

ON THE GREEN (2:10 p.m. ET): Man, he is struggling to get birdie looks to fall today. Nothing doing there, and he settles for par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even par thru 9 (5 under overall, T-41)

Hole No. 17: Par 4, 440 yards

OFF THE TEE (1:38 p.m. ET): Tiger loses this 3-wood left and is a bit lucky it didn’t get into deep trouble. Still, this definitely finds the rough. So he’ll have to be safe on this approach.

APPROACH SHOT (1:43 p.m. ET): Tiger took a mighty lash at this one, and he gives himself a good leave as this one finishes just short of the green in the fairway. That’ll leave him a 25-yard pitch with plenty of green to work with.

AROUND THE GREEN (1:47 p.m. ET): That’s decent, but he could’ve done better. Tiger’s pitch runs 6-7 feet past the cup, leaving him a slippery one for par.

ON THE GREEN (1:49 p.m. ET): That one was always low and right. He almost kind of lagged that putt there. Anyway, that leads to a tap-in bogey. No bueno.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even par thru 8 (5 under overall, T-44)

Hole No. 16: Par 3, 200 yards

OFF THE TEE (1:25 p.m. ET): Tiger’s tee shot just carries the bunkers and gets onto the green. This one will be about 40 feet for birdie. Should be a two-putt par upcoming.

ON THE GREEN (1:32 p.m. ET): Tiger lags to about 3 feet and rolls the remainder in for par. No harm done here.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under thru 7 (6 under overall, T-39)

Hole No. 15: Par 4, 470 yards

OFF THE TEE (1:07 p.m. ET): Tiger finds the right rough on this drive after it faded too much.

APPROACH SHOT (1:13 p.m. ET): A solid shot here, as this one finishes about 20 feet under the cup.

ON THE GREEN (1:18 p.m. ET): BURIED it! Tiger with his first birdie of the day. That was a perfect right-to-left swinger that ran into the middle of the cup. That’s a nice pick-me-up.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under thru 6 (6 under overall, T-39)

Hole No. 14: Par 4, 430 yards

OFF THE TEE (12:51 p.m. ET): He takes less than driver and this is a solid one down the right-center of the fairway. He should have roughly 150 yards in.

APPROACH SHOT (12:57 p.m. ET): Tiger leaves himself about 30 feet for birdie, as this one finishes well right of the cup.

ON THE GREEN (1 p.m. ET): Tiger two-putts for par. Another bland but simple par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even par thru 5 (5 under overall, T-44)

Hole No. 13: Par 5, 605 yards

OFF THE TEE (12:31 p.m. ET): This is driver down the right side of the fairway. A good strike. But this hole is so long that he will still have to lay up from there, most likely.

SECOND SHOT (12:37 p.m. ET): Tiger indeed lays up, actually into the right intermediate rough. Not ideal, but still a fine lie there.

THIRD SHOT (12:42 p.m. ET): A wedge to 7 feet here. That leaves a tasty birdie look.

ON THE GREEN (12:48 p.m. ET): And … no dice. Tiger has to settle for par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even par thru 4 (5 under overall, T-44)

Hole No. 12: Par 4, 494 yards

OFF THE TEE (12:17 p.m. ET): Tiger’s driver finds the fairway here. No problems, this is solid.

APPROACH SHOT (12:23 p.m. ET): This one is fired in about 15 feet under the cup. That should leave a decent birdie look.

ON THE GREEN (12:28 p.m. ET): Nope. He misses left and runs this by about 2 feet and taps in to settle for par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even par thru 3 (5 under overall, T-43)

Hole No. 11: Par 3, 228 yards

OFF THE TEE (12:06 p.m. ET): This is just fine, as Tiger gets this one to finish about 30 feet left of a back-right tucked pin.

ON THE GREEN (12:13 p.m. ET): Tiger runs a birdie putt about 4 feet by for the second straight hole. He does make the comebacker again, though.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even par thru 2 (5 under overall, T-44)

Hole No. 10: Par 4, 425 yards

OFF THE TEE (11:46 a.m. ET): Tiger’s opening drive is a miss to the left with a fairway wood. He is in the rough.

APPROACH SHOT (11:52 a.m. ET): A solid effort from here, as he is able to get this ball to finish roughly 35 feet right of the cup. He should get away with that poor drive and two-putt for par.

ON THE GREEN (11:58 a.m. ET): Tiger runs his first putt 4 feet by but buries the comebacker. Solid opening par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even par thru 1 (5 under overall, T-45)
