AKRON, Ohio (AP) – Tiger Woods is back to golf, and back to the same results he had before.

With another mediocre day at Firestone, and more struggles with the putter, Woods three-putted the last hole for a 2-over 72 on Saturday and tumbled even farther down the leader board at the Bridgestone Invitational.

Woods didn’t sound overly alarmed when he finished at 1-over 211 on the course where he has won seven times. He says he’s actually hitting the ball straighter, but still aiming as though the ball will curve more on his tee shots.

And then there’s the putter.

One of his employees was seen taking a different putter to the practice green after the round.
