U.S. Open 2015: Tiger Woods To Miss Cut For 2nd Time In Legendary Career
Tiger Woods will miss the cut at a PGA major for the fifth time in his career and second at the U.S. Open, according to ESPN.
The most famous athlete in the world's struggles continue as he shot 6-over 76 Friday in the second round of the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay. This was followed by a first-round 80 on Thursday. Woods is 16-over for the tournament, so he won't make the cut and will fail to compete on the weekend for the major.
The last time Woods missed the cut at the U.S. Open was shortly after the death of his father in 2006. His career missed-cuts at majors happened at the 2009 Open Championship, the 2011 PGA Championship and the 2014 PGA Championship. He has now missed the cut in two of his last three majors. In his first 37 major starts, he didn't miss a cut and won 10 times. In his last 30 heading into this week, he missed five cuts while winning four times.
Woods has 14 victories at majors, which is second to Jackc Nicklaus (18) for a career. The best finish of the 2015 season for Woods has been 17th at the Masters. In his last event he had his worst 72-hole score as a pro (302) at the Memorial following an 85 in the third round, The Guardian has learned.
The top 60 golfers and ties after the second round will make the cut. The cut was projected at 2 over as of 5 p.m. ET. Woods and his partner for the day, Rickie Fowler, won't make the cut. Fowler shot a 3-over 73 on Friday and is 14-over for the first two rounds.
Masters champion Jordan Spieth was the leader from the early groups, coming in with a 68-67 for 5-under. Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson, the co-leaders after the first round, had tee times Friday afternoon.
