Tiger Woods shoots awful 76, tumbles down US Open leaderboard
Tiger Woods is going to go winless for the 20th major since he won the US Open in 2008.
It was ugly, that much is for sure.
Tiger Woods got off to a resounding start with a birdie on the first hole on Saturday but the wheels came off after that and came off in a hurry.
Woods went on to bogey seven of the next 17 holes and stumble to a 6-over 76, far out of contention for the 2013 US Open.
The big issue for Woods of late has been his play on the weekends at majors. As Ron Sirak of Golf World pointed out, since losing to Y.E. Yang at the 2009 PGA Championship, Woods has only broken 70 three times in 23 weekend rounds in the majors.
According to Justin Ray of ESPN this was the worst third round at a US Open of Woods' career.
This missed tap-in par putt at No. 16 pretty much sums up his round (via @shanebacon):
And if not that, then definitely this missed par on No. 18 with girlfriend Lindsey Vonn looking on:
So the major drought for Woods stretches to five full years and counting.
He's never hit it beautifully off the tee at these tournaments but he used to be able to bail himself out with his putting.
No longer, though.
He's going to have to figure out a different way to win majors in the future.
Because what's happening right now isn't working.
