The streaks continue!

Tiger Woods has now gone eight straight rounds at Oak Hill without breaking par. He shot a 70 on Sunday (32 on the back nine) to finish at 4 over for the tournament. In fact, in two appearances at this course (2003 and 2013) he's a combined 16 over.

Despite that, Woods said after his round he still loves the course:

He's also now 28 over in his weekend rounds in the last eight majors. I don't know if you're aware but that's not going to get it done.

He also hasn't broken 70 on the weekend in a major in his last nine tries -- it hasn't happened since his fourth round at the Masters in 2011 when he shot 67.

The Woods narrative of late has been his poor weekend putting at the majors but this week it was his driver that failed him. He hit zero of nine fairways on Saturday and Sunday with his driver. That's cringe-worthy.

Here's a look at his Sunday card:

The scary part if you're a Woods fan is how pedestrian he looked this week. Not only did he never show any signs of life, he wasn't even close.

It got to the point by the end of the week that you expected him to miss greens and make bogeys, and if you didn't, you probably should have.

So for the fifth straight full PGA Tour season Woods will go winless at major championships. He hasn't won one since he turned 33.

And as Justin Ray of ESPN points out, this goes beyond a 2013 whiff. Only one man has ever won five or more majors after the age of 38, the same age Woods will be when the Masters gets going in April 2014. And as you well know by now Woods needs five to pass Jack Nicklaus for the all time record.

Every year we hear (we buy into) the "this is the year Tiger gets back on track at the majors."

I'm starting to think "that year" might never come.
