 JOHNS CREEK, Georgia (AP) -- Tiger Woods has shot his worst round ever at the PGA Championship. Expanded PGA coverage

   After playing the first five holes Thursday at 3 under, Woods fell apart on his way to a 7-over 77. He knocked two balls in the water, spent much of his day in the sand and wound up with three double bogeys and five bogeys.

   Woods had never shot worst than 75 at the PGA until his miserable round at Atlanta Athletic Club. The only other time he posted a higher score in a major was that 81 in the third round of the British Open, played in awful conditions at Muirfield.

Steve Stricker is the early leader, pushing his score to 7 under through 15 holes. Woods has his work cut out for him just to make the cut.
