SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — For two rounds, Tiger Woods seemed to be in command in the U.S. Open. Then came a weekend of frustration that ran his winless streak in major championships to four years.

Woods threw away his last chance at winning the Open on Sunday with a bogey-bogey-double bogey start that took away any chance of him mounting a charge up the leaderboard at Olympic Club.

Woods made some birdies coming in, but by then it was too late. His finished with a 3-over 73 that left him at 7-over par for the tournament.

For Woods, it was an opportunity that got away. He was tied for the lead going into the weekend before shooting a 75 in the third round.
