Tiger Woods says the career-high 85 he posted in the third round of the Memorial is a day he has to expect while going through a swing change.

Woods bounced back with a 74 on Sunday. His golf was much better until the end, when he made a pair of double bogeys over the last two holes. He played as a single for the first time in his career and finished in just under three hours.

Woods says it didn't matter that he was in last place. He was trying to get better.

He had a blister on the outside of his left forefinger and says he will probably just putt for the next few days to let it heal before getting ready for the U.S. Open.
