Tiger Woods made history again this week by making the Masters cut for a record 24th consecutive time. But he couldn’t do much more than that.

He shot a five-over-par 77 on Sunday, a day after a dismal 82 in the third round.

Woods was able to finish a tournament for the second time since the start of 2023.

“It was a good week all around,” he said, still upbeat after his Sunday round. “I think that coming in here, not having played a full tournament in a very long time, it was a good fight on Thursday and Friday. Unfortunately yesterday it didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted it to.”

Woods got a rousing ovation from the spectators as he made his way up the 18th hole and into the clubhouse.


A lot of people don’t know about the silver trophy, a model of the clubhouse that weighs about 20 pounds and is the size of a modest birthday cake.

This marked the fifth anniversary of Woods’ miraculous Masters win in 2019, when he collected his fifth green jacket.

He said the conditions presented a particular challenge this year.

“Just the wind and what it was doing out here to the golf shots and the balls and putting, how difficult the course was playing,” he said. “It doesn’t take much to get out of position here. Unfortunately, I got out of position a lot yesterday and a couple times today.”
