WATCH: Tiger Woods visits the dreaded 'Basement' at the US Open

More US Open: First-round leaderboard | Tiger shoots 80 | Expert Picks

Tiger Woods had an abysmal afternoon at Chambers Bay in the first round of the 2015 US Open, which was capped off with a bogey on 18. The bogey wasn't any news for a player that had nine bogeys or worse on the card on Thursday.

No, it was about how he got there. It started with this duffed fairway wood out of the fairway on his approach on the par five.

That duff sent Tiger to "The Basement" bunker, which is named that because of its depth. Just watch him descend the steps and nearly disappear from view to get to his ball.

I mean, just look at this. IT TAKES NINE STEPS TO GET DOWN TO IT!

Tiger was so over his round and pretty much everything at this point, so he just strolled in and hacked it out.

That is not edited, it really took him just three seconds from stance to strike. He was so over this whole round, and I can't blame him. He finished the day by shooting a 10-over 80 and was just happy to see the day end.
