Tiger Woods reacts on the seventh tee during the fourth round of the U.S. Open Championship golf tournament Sunday, June 17, 2012, at The Olympic Club in San Francisco.
That'll do it
So much for being back. Tiger Woods opens Sunday at The Olympic Club with a 4-over run through the first three holes to put a nail in his 2012 US Open coffin. After falling back in Saturday's third round, Woods quickly became an afterthought as others went on to steal the show . . .
Man of the hour?
Well, that was supposed to be Webb Simpson. But this guy grabbed his few seconds of fame by interrupting the champ's moment in the sun on live TV. Of course, an official quickly grabbed the man making the bird calls and all was normal — we think.
Graeme McDowell, who opened the final round tied with Jim Furyk for the lead, struggles early on before making a late push to stay in contention, but misses a do-or-die putt on 18, giving Webb Simpson the win.
Homer for Simpson
Webb Simpson closes with a 68 to win his first major.
Can't hack it
