(CNN) — Tiger Woods hit a new low Saturday, carding the worst round of his professional career at the Memorial Tournament in Ohio.

Woods scored a 13-over-par 85 which included six bogeys, two double bogeys and a quadruple bogey eight on the 18th hole.

The 14 time major champion made the cut by a single shot Friday but now lies dead last, eight shots behind Nick Watney in second last position.

His previous worst round was an 82 at the Phoenix Open earlier this year.

Saturday marked only the third time Woods has carded in the 80s in his career.

The World No. 172 had already spoken of being mentally “beat up” earlier in the week. When asked by a PGA officials whether he was willing to speak to the press after Saturday’s round he curtly replied “nope,” according to the AFP news agency.

Woods will now likely tee off by himself on Sunday morning.

He finished the day 24 shots behind overnight leader David Lingmerth who was 12-under-par before beginning his round later on Saturday.
