Woods withdraws from the PGA Championship

Tiger Woods will not finish the PGA Championship after withdrawing ahead of his final round at Southern Hills due to injury.

The 15-time major champion, making just his second appearance since suffering career-threatening leg injuries in last February's car crash, was joint-bottom of the leaderboard after following a battling second-round display by posting the worst round of his PGA Championship career.

Woods made the cut with a shot to spare and was 12 shots behind halfway leader Will Zalatoris, only to end any slim hopes of a weekend charge by carding a nine-over 79 in cold and windy conditions on Saturday.

The former world No 1, who won the PGA Championship the last time it was held at the venue in 2007, found the water twice in his opening six holes and then made five bogeys in succession in a major for the first time in his professional career.

Woods had to play the last four holes in one under just to ensure he broke 80, with his total two strokes worse than his score during the 2011 PGA Championship, although the 46-year-old did avoid matching his major record of 81 from the 2002 Open Championship.
