Tiger Woods makes decision on final round of PGA Championship
Tiger Woods played a dreadful round on Saturday at the PGA Championship. The bad round left him uncertain about whether or not he would play on Sunday. It didn’t take long for him to come to a decision.
The PGA Championship announced on Saturday that Woods withdrew from the tournament and would not be playing in the final round on Sunday.
“Tiger Woods has withdrawn after Round 3 from the 2022 PGA Championship,” their statement read.

Woods’ decision is not surprising, as he was clearly dealing with pain throughout most of the tournament.
This was just the second tournament that the 15-time major champion had played in following a car crash last year that almost forced him to have his leg amputated.
Woods made the cut after Friday’s round, but shot a 79 on Saturday in less-than-ideal weather conditions to play himself out of contention. He began the day at 3-over par, and finished at 12-over par.
Mito Pereira leads the field by three shots at nine-under par heading into Sunday.
