HOYLAKE, England (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Even after his worst 72-hole finish in a major, Tiger Woods says he would pick himself for the Ryder Cup team.

His first major of the year, and second tournament since March 31 back surgery, wasn't much of an audition for U.S. captain Tom Watson. Woods was never the same after opening the British Open with a 69. The mistakes kept piling up, and so did the big numbers, and he closed with a 3-over 75 on Sunday at Royal Liverpool.

"I just made too many mistakes," Woods said.

HOYLAKE, England (Paul Newberry/AP) — As his tee shot curled farther and farther away from the 17th fairway, heading toward all sorts of trouble, Tiger Woods simply stuffed his club in the bag.

BETHESDA, Maryland (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Tiger Woods back on the golf course is a big deal.

There was never any doubt, except for one sarcastic scribe who was walking toward the first tee at Congressional and noticed a sparse gallery for Woods' first appearance in three months. "Tiger really packs them in."

This was before realizing a few moments later that Woods was starting his round on No. 10.

BETHESDA, Maryland (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Tiger Woods never felt so good after playing so badly.

Taking two shots to escape a plugged lie in a bunker put him a hole. Four straight bogeys on the back nine Friday in the Quicken Loans National buried his chances of making it to the weekend. Over two rounds at Congressional, he missed 16 greens and managed to save par only three times.
