(Newser) – Tiger Woods has never looked worse. As he has done so often on Sunday at Firestone, he doffed his cap as he walked up to the 18th green. Only this time, the world's No. 1 player wore a look of resignation. He missed yet another putt and finished with a 77 to complete the highest 72-hole score of his career.

And it was the first time since 2003 that he shot over par in every round of a tournament. Only Henrik Stenson kept Woods from finishing in last place. Woods, who last year made PGA Tour history by winning the Bridgestone Invitational for the seventh time at Firestone, finished at 18-over 298. That's 39 shots higher than the record score he shot 10 years ago.
