Tiger Woods at Deutsche Bank Championship 2013: Day 4 Recap and Twitter Reaction

After a poor third round took Tiger Woods out of contention at the 2013 Deutsche Bank Championship, he struggled once again with a two-over final round of 73.

The superstar started the day tied for 47th place with a score of six strokes under par. This shows how easy the course has played at TPC Boston over the week, with the leader beginning the final round at minus-19.

However, Woods was unable to maintain low scores like the rest of the field, and his four bogeys on Monday saw him finish only four strokes under par for the event. He was tied for 63rd place when he entered the clubhouse.   

Here is a full look at Tiger's final round of the tournament.

Hopeful Start

After a rough showing on Sunday, it was important for Woods to get off to a good start. Beginning on the 10th tee, he did just that with a beautiful approach shot from the fairway.

He put the ball two feet from the hole and was able to tap it in for a birdie to open the round:

Unfortunately, this was a rare highlight on an otherwise poor day at the office for Woods.

 

Another Rough Stretch on Back Nine

Even though Woods started on the back nine on Monday, he had the same type of problems he had Sunday.

After making a par on No. 11, the No. 1 golfer in the world rankings started to fall apart due to some terrible shots off the tee. Golf Channel's Tiger Tracker provided a good look at some of his worst shots:

He bogeyed holes 12, 14 and 15 to fall to two strokes over par for the day and just four-under for the tournament. 

 

Rain Delay After Things Start Going Well

The three bogeys were easily the low point of the day, but Woods started to get back on track with four straight pars and then a birdie on hole No. 2. 

This was Woods' best hole of the tournament, earning three birdies and a par over four days. He had a long eagle chance on Monday and played it close enough to the hole to secure a birdie:

Unfortunately, he was then forced to stop play like everyone else when it started raining:

At the time of the delay, Woods was still 15 strokes behind the leader, Henrik Stenson:

Play picked up again in about two hours, and Tiger added a number of pars before finishing with one more bogey on the ninth hole.

While his last nine holes were more encouraging than the start, it is clear that he will not be able to compete for the title until he regains focus. 

 

Sights and Sounds

Despite the low finish on the leaderboard, Woods was still in good enough spirits to acknowledge his fans:

Then again, it could have been Phil Mickelson, who stole the signature final-day wardrobe from Woods:

Shane Bacon of Yahoo! also noticed the outfit:

One other notable person wore red and black on Monday, and that was Tiger's daughter Samantha, who followed him around during the tournament:

These types of moments allow fans to see a different side of Woods that is often overlooked while judging his performance on the course.

 

What's Next?

Despite the struggles, Woods likely remains at the top of the FedEx Standings heading into next week's BMW Championship. All he needs to do is stay in the top 30 of that event to qualify for the Tour Championship.

Based on what he has done this year, there is no real chance of that happening.

Still, he will need to show more consistency off the tee and on the green to be able to compete for a FedEx Cup title over the next two tournaments.
