Though he has not won a major championship in more than five years, Tiger Woods has not lacked recently for opportunity. Here's a look back at the close calls and near-misses that the world No. 1 has experienced on the game's biggest stages since he won the 14th and most recent major title of his career at the 2008 U.S. Open:

2009 PGA Championship The one that got away. Woods led after each of the first three rounds, but stumbled to a Sunday 75 and was overtaken by Y.E. Yang.
2010 U.S. Open Moved into third place with a Saturday 66 but faltered in the final round (75). Finished T-4, three shots behind Graeme McDowell.
2010 British Open Failed to break par in any of the final three rounds at St. Andrews after an opening 67, ultimately finishing T-23.
2011 Masters Tied for third after 36 holes but was derailed by a Saturday 74. A 67 Sunday gave him a share of fourth, four behind Charl Schwartzel.
2012 U.S. Open Held a share of the 36-hole lead at Olympic but failed to capitalize, shooting 75-73 across the weekend. Finished tied for 21st, six shots behind Webb Simpson.
2012 British Open Woods was in third after 36 holes and fourth after a Saturday 70. A final-round 73, though, left him tied for third, four shots behind Ernie Els.
2012 PGA Championship Like at Olympic, held a share of the 36-hole lead at Kiawah but fell back with rounds of 74 and 72. Ended in a tie for 11th, 11 shots behind Rory McIlroy.
2013 Masters Beginning the weekend five shots off the pace, Woods shot 70 in each of the final two rounds to finish tied for fourth, four shots out of a playoff.
