(Newser) – Tiger Woods may be back in the game, but he’s not on his game. Woods suffered his worst round ever at the PGA Championship, struggling to 7-over-par 77. Much of his game was spent in water and on sand, with three double-bogeys and five bogeys, the AP reports. “I'm not down," he said afterward. "I'm really angry right now."

The struggle came after a strong start: After the first five holes, Woods was tied for first. But double-bogeys at the 15th, 18th, and 6th holes helped leave him with the fifth-worst score. Now, his PGA Tour season could end tomorrow; it would be the first time he’d ever missed the PGA cut, ESPN notes. (Maybe he's still adjusting to his new caddie?) In front, meanwhile, was Steve Stricker, who ended up 7 under par with birdies at the 15th and 18th.
