Tiger Woods wasn’t making much of a move at the Wyndham Championship on Sunday, but any chance he had of rocketing up the leaderboard was dashed with a triple-bogey on the 11th hole.

Woods’ drive on the 486-yard par-4 landed in the left rough, and his approach missed the green left. He then bladed a chip across the green—he struggled with his chipping earlier this season—before chunking his second chip short of the green. From the fringe he putted past the hole before burning the edge with his comebacker. He tapped in for a triple-bogey 7, which moved him to 3-over for his round. At that point Woods was seven shots behind co-leaders Davis Love III and Scott Brown. Brown had a hole-in-one while playing with Woods earlier in the day.

Woods entered the Wyndham Championship needing a win to qualify for the FedEx Cup Playoffs, but after the 11th hole it appears he’ll come up short.
