In each of his last two tournaments, Tiger Woods has posted career-worst totals.

Woods finished the 2013 U.S. Open on Sunday at Merion Golf Club with a 13-over-par total of 293. It's his worst 72-hole total as a professional in the U.S. Open. His previous worst total was 290, shot twice, in the 1998 U.S. Open at The Olympic Club and 2004 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills.

The worst 72-hole total Woods has in the U.S. Open came as an amateur at Oakland Hills in 1996. He shot 14-over 294 for the week.

With a 6-over 76 on Saturday at Merion in the third round, Woods tied his worst round at the U.S. Open as a pro.

Woods' worst four-round total in any major is 295 in the 1995 Open Championship.

In his Open tune-up at the Memorial Tournament, Woods carded his worst nine-hole score on the PGA Tour, shooting 8-over 44 on the first nine holes (playing the back nine) of his third round at Muirfield Village.
