Struggling Woods loses club on swing out of fescue on 8th hole

BY foxsports • June 18, 2015

The start of the U.S. Open has not gone well for Tiger Woods.

He opened with a bogey at Chambers Bay in University Place, Wash., on Thursday.

He bogeyed the next hole.

He bogeyed the fourth hole.

He bogeyed the sixth hole.

All were par-4's.

On the eighth hole, Woods found himself in the deep fescue to the right of the fairway.

Then he lost his club on the shot in the above video.

However, he managed to save par after pitching to the green and two-putting to avoid another bogey.

Tiger finished the front-nine 4 over.

He saved par on 10 with this bunker shot.

But then he bogeyed 11, 12 and 13, and tripled-bogeyed the par-4 14th.

After a birdie on 16, Tiger parred the 17th hole before closing out the day with another bogey on 18.

All in all, there were enough lowlights to make a two-and-a-half-minute video:
