Twitter roasts Tiger after tough round
Tiger Woods endured a tough opening round at the US Open and haters in the twittersphere were happy to pounce.
The 14-time major winner opened his account with a triple-bogey seven and things didn’t really improve from there, with further back-to-back double bogeys leading to an eight-over 78.
To be fair, the blustery conditions at Shinnecock Hills had many struggling. Not that twitter cared…
Lips out for bogey. Double. Now 8 over.
That's it. Give me that damn putter. I'm chucking it off the dinghy.

It's cool, Tiger. I too have been 4-over after two holes.

In his last major win, Tiger Woods opened with a double-bogey.
Today he starts with a triple-bogey, which is … uh, even better?
