AUGUSTA, Ga. — Tiger Woods left the grounds late Sunday afternoon in a steady drizzle, empty-handed once again, his drought in majors that goes back to the U.S. Open in June 2008 extended another tournament.His 2-under 70 left him at 283, four strokes behind the number that sent Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera to a playoff won by the Australian, whose caddie, Stevie Williams, once worked for Woods.A near perfect approach shot that hit the flagstick on No. 15 on Saturday and went into the water — ultimately resulting in a two-stroke penalty after he made an illegal drop — was “certainly up there.” among the worst breaks of his career, Woods said Sunday.But after slipping into a tie for fourth, Woods put much of the blame on his putting.“It's one of those things where this golf course was playing a little bit tricky,” he said. “We had four different green speeds out there and I couldn't believe how slow they were the first two days. Yesterday, I couldn't believe how fast they were. And then today, it was another different speed again.”“I thought 65 would win it outright” Sunday, Woods said. “I thought that was going to be the number … maybe 8- or 9-under.“If I would have shot my number,” he added, “it might have been a different story.”Briefly• Players using long putters have now won four of the last six major championships, one of each.Third-round co-leader Brandt Snedeker finished tied for sixth at 4 under, five shots out of a playoff. “It's different [than 2008, when he collapsed late],” Snedeker said. “I'm not as crushed as I was in 2008 because I know I'm going to be there again. I putted about as poorly as I could (Sunday), and I still had a chance on the back nine.”• Defending champion Bubba Watson had a 10 on the par-3 12th, but he wasn't the only player to do that. Kevin Na also had a 10 on the hole fronted by Rae’s Creek. “It's funny,” he said, “if you're not going to win, you've got to get in the record books somehow, so I'm a guy that got a double-digit score on a par-3.• At only 14 years old, the youngest player ever to compete in the Masters, Guan Tianlang has achieved something that Jack Nicklaus, Ben Crenshaw, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods did before him. Guan, of China, won low amateur honors after closing out his historic first appearance at Augusta National with a 75 and a final score of 300. The only amateur to make the 36-hole cut, he placed 58th. “I think I did a pretty good job this week and I can't believe it's over,” the 125-pound eighth-grader said.• John Peterson, a Fort Worth Paschal grad and former LSU standout, finished his Masters debut with an 8-over 80 for a 14-over 302 total.
