"Shooting 18-over par is not fun," Woods said. "I don't see how it can be fun shooting 18 over."

He missed one last birdie putt to close with a 77. That gave Woods the highest 72-hole score - 298 - of any PGA Tour event he ever played, even as an amateur. It was the first time he shot over par in all four rounds since the 2003 PGA Championship at Oak Hill.

This from a guy who had never finished worse than fourth at Firestone in 11 previous events, who had not shot over par on the South Course since 2006, who last year made PGA Tour history by winning for the seventh time on the same course.

The numbers associated with Woods always have been staggering, now more than ever.

His 298 was 39 shots higher than the record score he shot 10 years ago at Firestone. He tied for 78th, the highest finish of his PGA Tour career. Only Henrik Stenson (20-over 300) kept Woods from finishing dead last. He set a career low by making bogey or worse on 25 of the 72 holes.

Some athletes need steroids to stay on top; Tiger just needed a steady stream of skanks :)

Endorsements + winning or finishing in the top five in just about every tournament helps...

Paging Butch Harmon, you have a call from a Mister Woody Eldrick.

Can't see it happening, but it might be what he needs.

It's all in the hips. It's all in the hips. It's all in the hips. It's all in the hips.

Poor bastard is a complete wreck. I would tell him to go spend a week with Phil Jackson. They call him the Zen master for a reason :D

I think he'll be back competing next year, though.

Tiger needs to put his putter in a few attractive holes. His juice is his secret to success.

Isn't he single now? He should be out there man-whoring it up to activate his secret powers.

Ya, what's stopping him from sleeping with 100s of girls now?

His big buck endorsements by companies that want to be "family friendly". He has several hundred million to make back, so in the meantime he'll keep it on the down-low.

Maybe he is purposely throwing his game to make people think "gee, he is really a mess" and feel bad for him.

If he was on top after what he just went through, the media would accuse him of not giving a shit about what he did.

Yes, it was bad. But Phil Mickelson finished right next to him and had a final round of 78
