Tiger Woods struggles, finishes 21st at U.S. Open

After a promising first two rounds at the Olympic Club, Tiger Woods seemed poised to capture his first major title since 2008. It didn’t happen. Woods shot a final round 73 and finished 21st. The first six holes were particularly troublesome for Woods, who did manage to go three under his final 11 holes. The Washington Post has the full story:

When Tiger Woods sent his first tee shot down the opening fairway Sunday afternoon at Olympic Club, the possibility still existed that he might come from behind and win his fourth U.S. Open championship. Even after he bogeyed No. 1, there was so much golf ahead, he could have contended.

But what followed was a miserable stretch that took Woods right out of the tournament, an event in which he shared the lead at the midway point. He bogeyed the second. He double bogeyed the third. He played the first six holes in 6 over par to get to 10 over for the tournament, and though he steadied himself, he never contended. After opening with rounds of 69 and 70, he shot 75 and 73 on the weekend — his second-worst performance, in relation to par, in the final two rounds of a major. He finished 7 over, tied for 21st.

“The first six, I just didn’t play well at all,” Woods said. “I just could never get anything going positively and I missed the ball in the wrong side a couple times, and that’s all it takes.”
