It was an exhausting weekend for Tiger Woods.

Not only did the golfing great take over host duties for the Genesis Invitational, a tournament in Los Angeles that his own Tiger Woods Foundation organizes, he also competed in a field brimming with talent. The competition did not go well.

Woods narrowly skirted missing the cut at Riviera Country Club on Friday, but that led to a different kind of ignominy on Sunday. Woods shot a rough 76 and 77 on Saturday and Sunday to finish +11 for the tournament, dead last among players that made the cut.

The low point came on Saturday when Woods four-putted by missing multiple gimmes.

There was also this adventure in the bunker on Sunday.

Adam Scott was the tournament’s victor at -11, 22 shots ahead of Woods.

While unfortunate, Woods’ performance is also pretty understandable. As most players were preparing during the early part of the week, Woods was organizing the tournament’s Celebrity Cup, meeting with the media and attending other functions.

According to Golf Digest, Woods only got 10 minutes of early morning warm-up time before competing in the Wednesday pro-am, telling them “I haven’t had a whole lot of time to practice this week ... I’ve been a little bit busy.”

But hey, Woods was at least able to actually win the Celebrity Cup.
