TULSA, Okla. — Tiger Woods’ body finally said enough was enough.

The 15-time major champion and four-time Wanamaker Trophy winner withdrew from the 104th PGA Championship shortly after play ended Saturday.

Woods mentioned his withdrawal was a possibility after he turned in his worst score—a 9-over 79 after Saturday’s third round—in his PGA Championship career. Woods clearly labored through the round, his right foot, ankle and leg that was severely damaged during a single-car rollover accident 15 months ago.

Woods also had a tough time in the second round when he grinded his way to the weekend with a 69. Woods finished 47th in his return to the game at the Masters.

“Well, I’m sore,” Woods said in Tulsa. “I know that is for a fact. We’ll do some work and see how it goes.” His week ends with rounds of 74-69-79.

Woods would have teed off around 7 a.m. local time (8 a.m. ET) Sunday, with temperatures in the lower 50s.

He has not committed to play in June’s U.S. Open but has said he will play in the 150th anniversary of the Open Championship in St. Andrews, Scotland, where he has won twice.
