Woods struggled with his putter, three-putting four times and four-putting the par-4 fifth hole.
The 46-year-old’s limp on his surgically repaired right leg was far more noticeable than it was earlier in the tournament.
Woods said he couldn’t get comfortable over the ball and nothing he tried seemed to work.
Woods said, “Conditions were tough today.”
Friday was chilly and gusty, but golfers got a bit of a break later in the day.
“Today it’s been blustery all day,” he said.
“It was cold from the start. The balls didn’t go very far. I thought it was tough.”
