Tiger Woods falls further back on Saturday at 2013 PGA Championship

Once again, Tiger Woods has stumbled on a weekend in a major championship.

This time, however, there was little on the line for the world No. 1.

Woods began his third round at the PGA Championship at Oak Hill trailing 36-hole leader Jason Dufner by 10 shots. Before Dufner even began his third round on Saturday afternoon, Woods worst-of-the-week 3-over 73 left him a full baker's dozen behind the laconic leader.

The 14-time major winner got off to a poor start, pulling his tee shot into the rough at No. 1, then catching a somewhat fortunate break when an aggressive swing from the heavy rough almost led to his ball finding even more trouble. Eventually, Woods dropped a shot for bogey, the first of four on the day against a single birdie.

In seven rounds at Oak Hill, Woods has now failed to break par. He is still yet to break 70 in a weekend major-championship round since the 2011 Masters, when he closed with 67 at Augusta National to finish T-4.

In fact, Woods' weekend disappointments have become commonplace since his Sunday defeat at the hands of Y.E. Yang in the 2009 PGA Championship at Hazeltine. The stories practically write themselves.

With that in mind, then, here's a Mad Lib bloggers and reporters could use going forward to make writing Woods game stories on the weekends in majors easier.
