Cole Hammer, the teenager who qualified for the Open via a sectional qualifer, finished with a seven-over 77. Woods was three shots back with a 10-over 80. 

The two had strikingly similar scorecards. Hammer had zero birdies, five bogeys and a double-bogey. Woods had one birdie, eight bogeys and a triple-bogey. Hammer hit 9 of 14 fairways and 9 of 18 greens. Woods hit 6 of 14 fairways and 9 of 18 greens.
