Woods' game fell apart in the rain and wind, putting into jeopardy his chances of winning golf's Grand Slam.

But a double bogey at the fourth dropped him back to five under and a tie with Ernie Els at the top of the leaderboard while Soren Hansen, Shigeki Maruyama and Carl Pettersson are tied at four under.
