After looking like a strong contender for the first two days of the 2012 U.S. Open at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, Tiger Woods faltered on Saturday and was never able to recover.
Woods shot a 75 on moving day and ended his tournament with a 73, finishing six strokes behind the eventual winner, Webb Simpson.
Despite falling short of taking home the major, Woods feels good about where his game is headed.
"There are a lot of positives this week," said Woods. "I hit the ball really well and unfortunately I just didn't have the speed of the greens until today."
Woods is starting to see a payoff from working with Sean Foley, his swing coach.
"I'm excited about the consistency of it, how well I hit the ball all week really. I didn't really miss it that badly this week, the miss was just a fraction off which is great, that's what we want to have happen."
Now, Woods just has to move on and continue to hone his game in an effort to recapture more glorious times.
"I had a chance this week and, you know, I'll get after it in another week in D.C."
