Tiger Woods rebounded from a disastrous start and eventually carded his best score of the week Sunday in the final round of the U.S. Open.

After Tiger Woods finished the U.S. Open Sunday at Pebble Beach with a closing 69, he spoke longingly of warmer weather.
Woods found trouble with the cool and damp air of Northern California and wore KT medical tape beneath his shirt to help counter the pain in his neck. Woods only played once between the PGA Championship and U.S. Open during a four-week gap. He did not play at all between the Masters (which he won) and the PGA Championship (where he missed the cut).
This week, he’s taken his quest for warmer weather halfway around the world to Thailand.
The period before the U.S. and British Open this year is five weeks. The 148th Open begins a month from today at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland.
It’s not known if Woods plans to play during this break. Given his comments after Pebble Beach, it does not appear likely. Then again, this is Tiger, so he could show up in Minnesota in two weeks.
