SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Tiger Woods matched his worst 9-hole score on the PGA Tour with a 44 on the back nine Friday at the Phoenix Open.

With the front nine still to play, Woods was 10 over for the tournament and tied for last with Arizona club pro Michael Hopper.

Woods also shot 44 on the back nine at the Memorial two years ago.

Woods took a double bogey on the 14th with a tee shot into a desert bush and a bad chip. He made triple bogey on the par-5 15th with a tee shot into the water, a bunker shot over the green and a flubbed chip.
