Tiger Woods conceded he was running out of time to win major titles after falling out of contention at the PGA Championship on Saturday.The 44-year-old American shot a 2-over 72 for a second successive round, which left him with little to play for leading into the final day at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco. TIGER ON SUNDAY: How to watch his round at the PGAThe tournament will represent another opportunity missed for the reigning Masters champion in his bid to equal Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 major victories. Woods has managed 15 over a 24-year professional career, but only one since 2008.”There’s not as many [opportunities to win] as when I first started playing,” Woods said after completing his round. “The reality is that the golf courses are getting bigger. They are getting longer. The margin between making the cut and the lead is a lot smaller than it used to be. Used to be sometimes 12 to 15 shots.”Now we had, what, nine shots here? It’s just different. It’s getting tighter and it’s getting harder to win events, but you look at the leaderboard of most major championships, you see the same guys.2 birdies.4 bogeys.4 fairways hit.12 greens in regulation.31 putts.Tiger Woods cards a 2-over 72 in Round 3 of the PGA Championship.

They understand how to win major championships, how to win the big events, how to plod their way along, how difficult it is to win these big events.”Putting again proved a problem for Woods as he failed to make a birdie until the 16th hole. Though well behind the contenders, Woods said he had a clear goal in mind for the final round.”You just keep fighting, no matter what,” he said. “Whether the rounds are shooting 61s or shooting 81s, the intensity should always be there, the effort should always be there. I keep fighting until the end [with] pride in what I do. I love to compete. Unfortunately I didn’t do my job today.”At the end it clicked and hopefully I can get something going tomorrow and get into the red for the tournament.”

You open it up, filled out the little one-page section and the postage is prepaid and in a few days you’ll get your ballot,” Pate says. “It’s that easy and that safe.”Pate used his emergency powers during the pandemic to take this step to encourage “early” voting for the June 2nd Primary. The deadline for submitting absentee ballot requests to county auditors is May 22nd.“But I would encourage when you get this mailer to process it and get it in,” Pate says. “That way you’re got it under control.”The early voting period for June’s Primary Election starts today. Pate and county auditors are urging Iowans to avoid voting in person on Primary Day due to concerns about spreading the coronavirus among voters and poll workers.“That’s what we want our folks to do right now during these times of challenge,” Pate says.Iowans may start casting early votes in-person at their county auditor’s office on Monday, May 4th. You must be a registered Democrat or a registered Republican voter to cast a ballot in that party’s June Primary, but independent or “no party” voters may switch their registration to either party to participate.This is what the mailing looks like.Didn’t get the mailing?
