2011 Australian Open Results: Tiger Woods Makes A Run, Greg Chalmers Takes The Win

When looking back on the 2011 Australian Open, Tiger Woods will likely lament a third-round hiccup. Three rounds in the 60s could've been enough for Woods to win the tournament, but it was a third-round 75 that dashed his hopes of getting back to his winning ways. The hole was too great for Woods to dig out of, even with a strong showing in the final round.

Woods finished the tournament at 11-under after carding a final-round 67. He made a late charge and was climbing the leaderboard on Sunday, but ran out of real estate as he tried to make up a six-shot deficit. Instead, Woods had to settle for a third-place finish, and perhaps a moral victory that comes along with a solid week of golf that had him in contention again.

As Woods plodded away, Greg Chalmers finished strong, carding a 69 on Sunday to win by a stroke. Chalmers was also in the 60s for three rounds, but his difficult round was an even-par 72 on Friday. Chalmers was followed closely by John Senden, who shot an even-par 72 on Sunday to finish alone in second at 12-under for the tournament, one shot off the pace.
