Before Tiger Woods can complete his comeback, he's going to have to stop things from coming back up. The one-time best golfer in the world fought through his third round at the Hero World Challenge in Floridaon Saturday as he battled illness and threw up on the golf course after the first hole, ESPN reports.
After a shaky stint on the practice tee, a visibly ill Woods vomited on his way to the second hole and spent the rest of the round profusely sweating and dealing with a fever. But Woods didn't let a little rejected breakfast get in his way, and managed to shoot his best round of the tournament with a 3-under-par 69, including a birdie on the first hole.
"It wasn't easy and I fought hard," Woods said, "That's about all I had."
All eyes were on Woods as this was his first tournament since taking time off from golf to rehab his back. He last swung a club competitively four months ago when he missed the cut at the PGA Championship. After three rounds, Woods is at even par, but 20 strokes behind leader Jordan Spieth.
"I like to compete," Woods said. "If I can go, I can go. I'll give it everything I have. This is different. I wasn't in pain. Just was a bit under the weather."
He also didn't want to be a bad host. The Hero World Challenge is his tournament, and raises money for the Tiger Woods Foundation. Play resumed Sunday.
