Golf 220 43 How Tiger choked away the British Open 31858417 Insult to injury Insult+to+injury Golf

We told you Tiger sure looks like he enjoys handshakes more than throat grabs. Well, could any image prove that more than this one? That is Woods shaking the hand of Adam Scott's caddie, Stevie Williams. Williams is Tiger's old caddie. Williams has ripped Woods for his extramarital affairs and made what many viewed as a racist remark about Woods just months after their split — while celebrating a Scott win. Now Tiger, on the heels of blowing another shot at a major, shakes the guy's hand?

Whitlock: Shaking my head

As you can see from the reaction on the 11th, Tiger's long game wasn't doing him any favors, either. Throughout the tournament, he said he was 'grinding.' Perhaps that's code for 'I can't hit it long and straight, and I consistently miss putts by inches, but at least I still see my name on the leaderboard.' His bogey on 11 was his fifth of six on the day, and came as Phil Mickelson began a run of four birdies over his final six holes to win the tournament.

Can this be fixed?

On the par-5 ninth, Tiger actually made a birdie. The first problem? It was only the fourth par-5 birdie of the tournament for the former king of the big holes. The bigger problem? As Paul Azinger said during the telecast, his eagle attempt, 30 feet from the hole and just off the green, was 'easy.' Instead, Woods left it 10 feet from the hole and needed to nail that putt just to get the birdie. That did not used to happen.

The worst shot of his career

Tiger started Sunday's round by leaving his approach on the first hole 100 feet short. A three-putt later and Woods was off and running with his first of six bogies. Just look at that expression — and these, too.

He's cursed — and done for

We should have known Tiger was done before Sunday even started. His disaster on 17 on Saturday paved the way for Sunday's final meltdown. Indeed, the hands that used to squeeze the life out of Tiger's opponents' hopes are now better-suited for exchanging pleasantries, this time with playing partner Adam Scott at Sunday's first tee.

The biggest problem in Tiger's game

Tiger used to intimidate every golfer on the planet on Major Sundays. Now, plenty of guys seem to laugh in his face. Despite entering the final round at the British Open only two strokes out of the lead, Tiger crumbled again and stretched his major-less streak to 17. Here's how Sunday went down (the tubes).
