TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tiger Woods is out of the PGA Championship after a painful third round at Southern Hills.

He posted a 79 for his highest score ever in the PGA. It also was his third-highest score in a major.

When the third round ended, the PGA of America announced that the 15-time major champion had withdrawn from the final round. It was his first withdrawal from a major in his professional career.

Woods was 21 shots behind Mito Pereira of Chile.

This was less about a chance to win and more about the noticeable limp as he gingerly walked at Southern Hills.
