AUGUSTA, Ga. — For everything he accomplished this week at Augusta National Golf Club in his return to competitive golf, Tiger Woods will be disappointed in his result at the 86th Masters.

For how well he hit his driver in Sunday’s final round, the rest of his game was rather suspect as the five-time winner of the green jacket signed for a second consecutive 6-over 78 to tie his worst-ever finish at the Masters and finish the tournament at 13-over and walk off the course at T-47 shortly after the final group teed off.

Woods did well to make an early birdie on No. 2 before compounding mistakes en route to three straight bogeys on Nos. 4-6. He added two more bogeys on Nos. 11 and 14 before a head-scratching double bogey after a short miss from two feet on No. 17.

Player partner Jon Rahm signed for a 3-under 69.

Woods came into the week saying he thought he could win and came up short of that goal, but the fact that he walked 72 holes and competed with the world’s best a little more than a year after his single-car accident that caused severe damage to his right leg, foot and ankle is an accomplishment on its own.

Who knows when we’ll see him next, but despite the result this week was a positive step forward.
