Generally, you aren't going to get "great finishes" in these events w/o guys like Tiger and Phil winning. All the classic Masters moments have the best guys winning. It's not a coincidence.
Personally, I wasn't expecting a great finish to begin with - even if Tiger or Phil had posted 11 or 12 under, it's a wait to see if it holds up.
But seeing one guy give up 2 shots in the last 2 holes to a guy that was playing his 3rd shot from 180 away on the 72nd hole is about as shitty as it gets for the best tournament of the year.
