As a 3-year-old prodigy, Tiger Woods shot a 48 in nine holes. In his latest attempt to recover that genius form, the 35-year-old Woods fared little better with a 6-over 42 in nine holes at the Players Championship on Thursday before withdrawing due to injury.

Woods’ career-worst slump has far outlived the four-month hiatus he took in 2009-10 to deal with the fallout from his rampant infidelity. Here is a numbers-based look at his recent futility on the golf course:
