Tiger Woods finished up the fourth and final round at the Masters on Sunday.

He finished toward the bottom of the leaderboard but went through all 72 holes against high-level competition for the first time since he suffered devastating leg injuries in a February 2021 car crash.

In the third round Saturday, he shot his highest 18-hole total with a 79 and matched it on Sunday.

“As many putts as I had, you’d think I’d have figured it out somewhere along the line, but it just didn’t happen,” Woods said after his round Saturday.

The two 78s he put together in the third and fourth round. It was one more than his first trip to Augusta as an amateur back in 1995 when he shot a 77.

“Each and every day is a challenge,” he said Saturday. “Each and every day presents its own different challenges for all of us. I wake up and start the fight all over again.”

Woods was about 14 months removed from nearly losing his leg in the Los Angeles car crash. Renner asked Woods about his motivation to play through all the pain and injuries.

“It’s hard. I have those days where I just don’t want to do anything. It just hurts. As I’ve alluded to earlier, I’ve had a great team around me that are super positive and motivated me and have helped me around,” Woods said. 

“Those days are tough. The days I feel good, those are easy days. But there have been more and more tough days than easy days. I just got to work through it. Just like golf, in order to get better you just gotta go out there and put in the time. I have. The hard parts are the recovery sessions. Pop in those ice baths a number of times a day. Those do really suck but it works. Just to have the support around me, I couldn’t have done it without them. “

Woods has five Masters green jackets to his name.
