Tiger Woods' lead cut to one shot in final round of Chevron World Challenge

December 5, 2010 | 11:56 am


Tiger Woods stumbled out of the gate Sunday in the final round of the Chevron World Challenge in Thousand Oaks. He made bogeys on two of the first three holes, and his lead over Graeme McDowell was slashed to one shot.

Woods, attempting to win his first tournament since the scandal surrounding his extramarital affairs erupted a year ago, started the round with a four-shot lead at 17 under par, but he made five on the par-four first hole at the Sherwood Country Club course. 

Woods then made a birdie four on the par-five second hole but followed that with a bogey four on the par-three third hole, dropping him to 16 under par for the event.

McDowell, the U.S. Open champion who was playing with Woods, got off to a fast start with birdies at the second and fourth holes to go 15 under par for the tournament.
