Tiger Woods needed something of a miracle if he was going to claw his way back into the PGA Championship on moving day.
He did not get that miracle. Instead, on a day when he needed to go low, he had two early bogeys on the front nine and closed the round with a disappointing 73. Tiger is four-over par heading into the final round of the season's last major.
Tiger is facing a fifth straight year without a major championship. The PGA Championship will be his 18th straight major without a title.
Tiger came into the PGA Championship on a roll, as he won last week's Bridgestone Invitational by seven strokes. That momentum meant nothing as he has struggled in each round at Oak Hill. He has never broken par in seven PGA rounds at the Rochester, N.Y., country club, and the third round was his worst of the 2013 PGA Championship.
