Tiger Woods sinks to BOTTOM of Masters leaderboard before third day abandoned in Augusta

Tiger Woods struggled in wet and windy conditions on day three of The Masters, after falling to the bottom of leaderboard before play was eventually suspended

Tiger Woods sank to the bottom of the leaderboard before play was abandoned on a wet and windy third day at the Masters.

LIV Golf star Brooks Koepka and Jon Rahm face playing 30 holes on Sunday as they battle to win the 87th Masters. But Woods is just in a battle for survival after limping his way through the brutal first nine holes of his third round in six-over par – and he now must decide if he is capable of playing 27 holes today. He is now 22 shots off the lead.

Woods, 47, had declared he “loved” the Masters after making the cut here for a record-equalling 23rd time – with help from two late bogeys from his friend Justin Thomas. The 15-time Major champion had drawn level with the mark held by Gary Player (1959-82) and Freddie Couples (1983-2007).

Woods had resumed his rain-delayed second round on the 12th tee at 8am and followed his opening 74 with a 73.

“I’ve always loved this golf course, and I love playing this event,” said the five-time winner. “Obviously I’ve missed a couple with some injuries, but I’ve always wanted to play here. I’ve loved it.”

But in chilling temperatures later in the day, the world No.1001 might have changed his mind as he started his second round from the 10th tee with bogeys on 10 and 14.
