After imploding Saturday and shooting a career worst 85 at the 2015 Memorial Tournament, Tiger Woods got out of Dodge and did not speak to reporters or do any interviews.
But following a final-round 74 on Sunday, Woods actually spoke. In his press conference, Tiger reflected on his round, the crowds and overall play during the 2015 Memorial Tournament.

Tiger’s last-place finish was the first time he finished in last place among players to make a cut in a tournament, according to Elias. Playing by himself Sunday, Woods played the last two holes in 3-over with a double-bogey at the last – to complete his 15th Memorial Tournament in 302 strokes at 14-over par, his highest 72-hole total ever.
“Just because I’m in last place doesn’t change how I play golf. Whether it’s the first day or last day doesn’t matter, play all out.”

Tiger Woods drops to No. 181 in the world ranking, one spot behind Hyungsung Kim.
