Tiger Woods Shoots Worst Professional Round, Misses Cut
Tiger Woods exuded optimism and confidence returning to a PGA Tour event for the first time in nearly six months but none of that carried over to the golf course. The 14-time major winner shot an 82 on Friday and missed the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
There wasn't much to point at that was positive for Woods in the second round. On a wet and sloppy day, the 39-year-old carded six bogies, two doubles, and one triple bogey. That was just the fourth of his career.
"We all have days like this," Woods said. "Unfortunately, mine was in a public forum. We take the good with the bad."
The 11-over, 82 was the worst for Woods over more than 1,000 professional rounds. It led to his second-consecutive missed cut, which had previously never happened over his 18+ year career. After the round, he said he'd return home, get to work, and return to Torrey Pines next week.
He also went to Twitter to thank fans for their support this week.
A pair of 21-year-olds, Daniel Berger (-8) and Justin Thomas (-7), sat atop the leaderboard Friday afternoon with other players still on the course.
