“We’ll talk about it, what I need to do and see if that’s the right move or not”, Woods said.
Woods said it was building, and that he found a key to his putting Saturday morning “but the damage had already been done”. “Finally rolled the ball coming in, and unfortunately it was a little too late”. Simpson has just seven top-25 finishes in 18 events played and has missed the cut three times. Well, he would have won the Open that year except for Rory McIlroy, who set an all-time Open aggregate scoring record of 16-under, eight shots better than second-place Day. All three together, have combined to win five of the last six majors.
But the bottom line is four missed cuts, a withdrawal and no top-10s in 10 tournaments. Scott has been very disappointing in his past two starts missing the cut at the PGA and finishing well back at the Bridgestone. We watch for moments, waiting to grab hold of anything so, one day, we can say we witnessed the greatest golfer who ever lived do something you wouldn’t believe. Players are required to make their event entries official within 30 minutes of the call of play on the Friday of the week before a tournament.
This year at St. Andrews the entire golf course was covered with free WiFi access for the galleries.
That’s not going to happen this weekend at Whistling Straits, as Woods has officially missed the cut and won’t be playing in the final two rounds of yet another Major. No one has done that since the playoff system began in 2007. Woods is No. 187 in the current points race, 292 points behind Charl Schwartzel at No. 125.
While he hasn’t counted himself out Jones believes Day might kick start a huge run in majors.
Woods has not won on the PGA Tour since the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, his fifth victory of that year.
“Season or year?” he said. I just haven’t come to grips with this whole non-calendar season yet, and this whole wraparound schedule thing, so for me I still consider it a year. I was driving it with them, I was sometimes hitting [approach] shots inside them. “I got going faster than I thought I would”, he said.
Woods, who has tumbled to 286th in the World Golf Ranking, confirmed Monday that he would compete in the Wyndham at Sedgefield Country Club. He is playing an exhibition with Matt Kuchar in Mexico.
When he was forced to play from the carpet of a hospitality suite after a wayward tee-shot on nine, clearing tables, bar stools and spectators out of the way to take his second stroke, it looked as if his lack of experience at the sharp end of major tournaments was beginning to tell.
He even claimed, “the confidence is growing quickly. That’s the fun part”, said the 14-time major champion.
“I still have plenty of golf to be played for the rest of the year”.
