Woods bemoans missed cut

by Setanta Staff , 05 May 2012

Tiger Woods missed the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship, only the eighth time in his career that he failed to make the last two days of a tournament.


Woods hit a one-over 73 after failing to birdie any of the par fives, to end on an even par 144.

Seventy-four players made the cut at one-under 143, the first time in 10 years of this tournament that the cut was under par.

"This is one of my favourite tour stops, and unfortunately, I'm just not going to be around for the last two days," Woods said on Friday.

His last missed cut came at the 2011 PGA Championship in Atlanta, where he was playing for the second time following a four-month break due to knee and Achilles injuries.

From the 1998 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-am to the 2005 Byron Nelson Championship, Woods made a PGA Tour-record 142 consecutive cuts. Since that time, no player has gone as many as 50 straight tournaments without missing a cut.

Woods feels that his poor form can be attributed to the fact that he is still learning a new swing under Sean Foley.

"It just that I get out there and I want to get comfortable, and I follow my old stuff," he said. ~"And I hit it awful. All the shots I got uncomfortable on, I just said, 'I'm going to get really uncomfortable and make it feel as bad as it possibly could,' I striped it."
