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.
He also was in a pro-am foursome that was immediately behind the one with Woods and Paul, and with so much of the gallery following them, Scott could go through his round in relative anonymity.
Jordan Spieth failed to add a third major title to his 2015 resume on Sunday, but with his runner-up finish to Jason Day at Whistling Straits, the 22-year-old claimed another coveted honour: the world number one ranking. So far, the reviews have been solid for the modern-looking upscale sports bar, including rave reviews for the Nutella s’mores desserts and the fresh fruit garnishes in the cocktails.
The final FedExCup points-paying event of the PGA Tour’s regular season is finally upon us – the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. A stress-free day, the Wisconsin player called it. His best finish turned out to be a tie for 17th at the Masters.
“My mom took a second mortgage out on the house, borrowed money from my aunt and uncle, just to get me away from where I was to go to school, 7 hours drive”, said Day.
In the second round, Woods hit just four of 11 fairways but then needed 33 putts.
Tiger Woods missed the cut at the PGA Championship, but he won’t miss out on a round with an National Basketball Association star.
Asked if it was about the playoffs, Woods said that wasn’t the only decision in play. We don’t play hardly any golf courses anymore in the States for me, anyways, that I got my 2-iron. “I look at the fact that it’s just another opportunity to get better and try and take myself to the next level and whatever that is, it is”.
“That’s the fun part”, he said.
The trouble is, his agent, Mark Steinberg, later said Woods was merely complying with the Friday entry deadline and will decide in the next few days whether he’ll actually play in the Wyndham.
He entered the week ranked 186th in the FedEx standings, and only the top 125 make the playoffs.
Lastly, with the FedEx Cup again in mind I’ll side with Jonas Blixt and Brian Davis at big prices. “But I really feel like he thinks he’s close to some sort of good form and found a little something with his putter toward the end of the (PGA Championship)”. I haven’t put together ball striking and putting. And unfortunately, I’m missing out on, potentially missing out on the playoffs. Two majors wins, five wins overall this year and near misses at the other two majors certain makes for a compelling argument. “And to have the control I need to have going forward, it’s starting to come back, which is nice”.
This is a player who not only has lost the consistent physical edge that allowed him to be one of golf’s most dominant players for more than a decade.
