Tiger Woods' winless streak in the majors has officially moved into its sixth calendar year, and this one got ugly during the weekend. Over his final 36 holes, Woods carded 11 bogeys and a triple-bogey against only four birdies, spiraling out of contention on a layout that he thought he would fairway metal to death. But it was his putter that truly let him down. Woods picked up 128 putts on the week -- an average of 32 per round. The putting woes came as Woods performed better than the field average in fairways hit at 70 percent (vs. field at 62.28 percent) and in greens in regulation at 65 percent (field at 58.56 percent). "I struggled with the speed all week. These greens are grainy. It's one of the older bent grasses, creeping bent," Woods said. "So it's a little bit grainy. 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 started his third round with a birdie to move within three shots of the lead, but seven bogeys to finish out his round left him with a 12:02 p.m. date with Matt Bettencourt -- not what you'd expect from the world No. 1. He also started Sunday with a birdie but followed with a drive out-of-bounds at No. 2 that led to a triple-bogey 8. He mixed in four bogeys and two birdies the rest of the way en route to a 4-over-par 74. He failed to break par in all four rounds, posting 73-70-76-74 to finish at 13 over. But Woods says he refuses to simply forget the week. "There's always a lesson to be learned in every tournament, whether you win or lose," he said. "I'll look back at the things I did right and the things I did wrong."
