Ranking Tiger Woods' Majors Performances This Season

0 of 4

    Even though Tiger Woods did not win a major championship in 2012, he did give us performances that made fans think he was going to climb back onto the green side of the grass.

    After finishing 11 strokes back of Rory Mcllroy in the PGA Championship, Tiger has a lot of work to do to get back into the championship conversation.

    Nevertheless, let's rank his four major performances of 2012 from worst to best.

No. 4: The Masters

1 of 4

    Tiger did not know it at the time, but when spring unofficially arrived to most of the U.S., his game was going to be as cold as winter.

    In the Masters, Tiger turned in a five-over-par. His 293 strokes placed him 40th at Augusta.

    Not many people gave Tiger much of a chance after missing the cut March 8 at the WGC-Cadillac. After that, his Masters hopes became slim.

No. 3: U.S. Open

    Here, things start to get better for Woods. At least in the first 18 holes.

    In what had to be one of the hardest courses played at the U.S. Open in recent memory, Woods held his own during the week to turn in a seven-over-par, resulting in a 21st-place finish.

    On the weekend, San Francisco got the best of him. Even though he was tied for the lead going into Saturday morning, he let it go in the first six holes. Yikes.

No. 2: PGA Championship

3 of 4

    Woods walked off the course in South Carolina on Saturday afternoon concerned over whether his play would continue well once Mother Nature took over.

    He finished 11 strokes off the lead to end his regular season, but he did end up finishing 11th. This would clinch the fact that Woods never had a weekend round under par.

No. 1: 141st Open Championship

4 of 4

    Woods set himself up in the first 54 holes to give himself a chance to win his major in four years. He shot a 204 to put himself in fourth place at six under par.

    He shot a 73 in the final round but wasn't the only golfer who fell apart on that Sunday. Woods came back home with a third-place finish.
