Tiger Woods did not make the cut for a major PGA Championship after his performance at Atlanta Athletic Club that left much to be desired.
Woods finished 10 over par, six strokes away from making the cut. It was his 260th start as a professional golfer and only the seventh time when he failed to make the cut in a tournament. It was also only the third major tournament that he missed because he did not make the cut.
The future of the former No. 1 golfer with 14 major under his belt remains unclear. Woods needed to make this PGA cut badly to get a chance to vie for the tournament title and extend his PGA Tour season. He did not sign up for this week’s Wyndham Championship, part of the FedEx Cup which means that he will not be eligible for the FedEx Cup playoffs.
As Tiger Woods said, he needs to work on his swing with his new teacher Sean Foley who began training him two weeks ago. And to do that, he needs to play in more tournaments.
He will play in the Australian Open in November, and, maybe, in next week’s Presidents Cup as U.S. team captain Fred Couples said that he would take Woods if he feels that he is ready. He might make his next appearance in his own invitational charity event, the Chevron World Challenge, in early December.
With very few tournaments in the picture, Tiger Woods will move to Jupiter, Florida where Foley lives to practice his swing.
