The U.S. Open 2013 golf tournament will come to a climax on Sunday as the final round concludes and this year's winner is revealed. All the action from the Merion Golf Club can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Many golf fans will be disappointed that Tiger Woods will not be in the mix to take the title this year. He had already dropped out as a real contender after his 6 over par round on Saturday where he finished with a poor 76. And in his final round the three-time U.S. Open champion scored a 4 over par 74, after hitting a triple bogey early on at the pat 5 second hole. Woods concluded with a 13 over 293 for the tournament – nowhere near competitive to take the title.
The poor showing at this year's tournament means that Woods' baron stretch without a major title continues. The golfing superstar has won 14 major titles in total through his career to date, but has not managed to win any since the 2008 U.S. Open.
Many had predicted this was Woods' best shot at a major after his good form through the season so far. He has won four PGA Tour tournaments this year, and he tied for fourth at the Masters. However, he seemed to struggle throughout at the Merion Golf Club and he will have to wait longer to claim his 15th major.
Woods has reflected, "I struggled with the speed, especially right around the hole, putts were breaking a lot more. I gave it a little more break and then it would hang. That's kind of the way it was this week."
Woods, who shot 21 holes at the Merion of bogey or worse, will now have to wait until the AT&T National at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md on June 27-30 to next get into action. He will be hoping to defend his title there, and then look towards the British Open at Muirfield in Scotland from July 18-21 for another chance at claiming his 15th major title.
