Another major, another miss for Tiger Woods

Can you call Tiger Woods' performance in the U.S. Open as a disappointment?

Not if you're like me and you didn't think he would win.

Most people though Woods was back entering the tournament. After the first two rounds, many still believed, thinking this could be his big return.

I didn't. I held firm after 36 holes of the tournament at the Olympic Club in San Francisco.

After seeing Tiger struggle at the Masters, I knew something wasn't right with his game. I didn't think his game could hold up over four days against the best in the world.

Yeah, he can win a normal PGA Tour event against a weak field. That doesn't mean he's back.

Saturday and Sunday confirmed it.

Maybe next time Tiger's game will be up for it.

Only time will tell, but he's slowly running out of it.

Tiger's not out of woods just yet

By many accounts, Tiger Woods is the favorite to win the U.S. Open.

It's just like the Masters, when Woods was coming off a convincing win and was tabbed as the favorite.

Tiger told us he was ready for a win and his game was in shape.

It didn't work out that way.

Tiger looked normal and didn't win a green jacket.

The Open starts Thursday and Tiger is coming off another convincing win.

We're also hearing similar comments about everything clicking for Woods before the tournament.

We'll see how that works out for him.

I think Tiger is trying to convince himself, the media and the rest of the PGA Tour his game is back.

He's trying to bring back the intimidation factor.

I don't think the top players are buying it.

And I don't think Woods' game is tip-top shape.

I think he'll eventually win another major, maybe even two.

It won't be this week at the Open.
