Tiger Woods entered the final round of the 2013 Masters four strokes behind the leaders. The world No. 1 had never won a major when trailing entering the final round.
Unfortunately for Woods, that trend continued.
He shot a final-round 70 to finish at-5 for the tournament.
Woods struggled with the speed of the greens during his final round, leaving several crucial putts short. When he had to have putts they didn't find the hole. When he needed to come with a shot, he didn't have it, as his distance control was off on a few key approach shots, such as his approach at the final hole.
The two-stroke penalty assessed after Tiger's second round put him in a difficult position entering the weekend. He made enough birdies yesterday to vault to the head of the leaderboard, however, three bogeys and a third-round 70 placed him four strokes out of the lead entering the final round.
Ultimately, that deficit was too large to make up and Tiger's major drought (since the 2008 U.S. Open) continues.
