Tiger Woods had his first birdie-free round since 2014 to finish equal 55th at the Wells Fargo Championship in North Carolina on Sunday, his second-worst result of the year.

The long-time rivals haven't been part of the same pairing at golf's unofficial fifth major since the third round in 2001, where Woods holed his iconic "better than most" putt on the 17th green on his way to a one-shot victory.

Woods scored even on opening day, 73 on Friday and 68 Saturday. "I feel like I drilled it pretty decent today". Hit some good drives that just ended up off the fairway, some landed in the fairway, so I wasn't disappointed with that.

"Again, just did not putt well and didn't make a birdie today".

"I got shut out", Woods said of the absence of birdies in a round that included 15 pars and three bogeys.

Woods finished the tournament with minus-5.8 strokes gained by putting, which ranked 72 in the field. "Like [hole] 10, I was in the ideal position". I leave it right where I need to leave it, right below the hole, and I miss it. The ones I did hit well, I didn't have the speed on.

It's just one of those weeks and I'm on to the next week, which is nice. "He said, 'Great playing [Saturday], get this thing done'".

The 14-times major champion said he would work on all facets of his game before the Players Championship starts at TPC Sawgrass in Florida on Thursday. "You know, I think that it will be fun for all of us". "I know what to expect there". I've had two wins. "Because that golf course does demand everything". I'm very pleased with the way I'm swinging.
