Tiger Woods Out for PGA Tour

Tiger Woods Out for PGA Tour

Woods will not continue on after a poor performance in Atlanta.

Published August 13, 2011

A poor performance at the Atlanta Athletic Club on Friday means Tiger Woods won't advance on the PGA Tour, a career first for the seasoned golfer.

 

ESPN writes:

 

Woods shot 3-over 73 and added to his opening-round 77 his total of 150, 10-over par, missing the cut by six strokes.

 

It was just the seventh time in 260 starts as a pro on the PGA Tour that Woods failed to advance after the 36-hole cut. And it was just his third missed cut as a pro in a major championship, the others coming at the 2006 U.S. Open and 2009 British Open.

 

Any hope of advancing to the weekend vaporized in the sauna that has enveloped the PGA Championship when Woods double-bogeyed the 11th and then again at the 12th -- his fifth double in two days.

 

"I think it's a step back in the sense that I didn't make the cut and I'm not contending in the tournament," Woods told the sports network.

 

Woods only recently came off a three-month hiatus after injuring his leg.
