Tiger falters to finish seven shots out in Dubai
Woods tied for 44th at Torrey Pines, where he had won the last five times he had played and had never finished out of the top 10.
On Sunday Woods couldn’t have missed the cheers as Quiros chipped in for an eagle on No. 2 and then added several more birdies to move to 11 under and five shots ahead of Woods after six holes. By the turn, most fans had started shifting their attention to the duel between Quiros, Anders Hansen of Denmark and James Kingston of South Africa.
Woods still had a mathematical chance as he came onto the 14th when he was four shots back with five holes to go.
But Woods hit his drive into the rocks, a second into the bunker and then missed an easy par put to settle for bogey that ended his chances. He finished with three more pars and the double bogey on 18.
A victory here would have drawn a line in the sand for the beleaguered Woods.
This would have been his 12th win outside the PGA Tour and perhaps his biggest since the Thanksgiving night car accident in 2009 that derailed his run as the world’s top golfer.
For Woods, it’s back to the driving range and the hope that he can make his mark at the upcoming Match Play Championships, starting Feb. 23 at Dove Mountain in Arizona.
“I know what I can do in the game and Sean and I are trying to get there,” Woods said.
