Tiger Woods tops it into the turf to end embarrassing day at U.S. Open

It was sad to watch Tiger throughout the first round at Chambers Bay, but he might have saved his worst for last.

Tiger Woods' worst career U.S. Open round is coming to a fitting end. After making a birdie at the 16th, and grinding out a par at the 17th, Woods piped his drive into the fairway at the last. But he was not going to sneak out of Chambers Bay unscathed.

Tiger pulled a fairway wood and proceeded to top it -- just a complete junk ball right into a miserably deep bunker, known as Chambers basement, that sits in the middle of the fairway. It was the kind of shot that weekend hackers and chops hit with regularity, and one final touch of embarrassment on another gruesome day.
