Tiger Woods posted a second-round 5-over 76 to miss the cut at the Genesis Open by four shots.
Woods started out par-par-birdie-bogey-birdie to sit 1 under through five holes and even-par for the tournament. But the 42-year old collapsed over his final 13 holes, finishing with just one more birdie against seven additional bogeys to sign for a 6-over par total.
“I didn’t really play that well today. I missed every tee shot left and I did not putt well, didn’t feel very good on the greens and consequently never made a run,” said Woods, who hit just 5 of 18 fairways on Friday.
“I knew I had to make a run on that back nine and I went the other way.”
Woods won’t have long to simmer, as the 14-time major winner has committed to next week’s Honda Classic.

VIDEO: THE HIGH POINT OF DAY
- This week marked Woods’ 330th career start on the PGA Tour.
- Woods missed the cut for just the 25th time in his career (7% clip).
- Woods’ only other missed-cut at Riviera came 26 years ago as a 16-year-old amateur in 1992.
- With 11 starts, the Genesis Open is the only tournament where Woods has made double-digit appearances and failed to collect a victory.
“I thought the cut would be 1 today. I thought I had a chance, I birdied 10, I was right there. I thought I could pump a drive down there on 11 and get to it with an iron and turn the tide around and play a good solid back nine, but I didn’t do it. I didn’t play very well on that back nine, and the feeling of not feeling very good over my putts finally caught up with me.”
