Tiger Woods made his long-awaited return to the PGA Tour at the Farmers Insurance Open. But it only lasted 36 holes.
The 14-time major champion, who has won eight times at Torrey Pines (seven Farmers Insurance Opens and one U.S. Open), was unable to get anything going after a horrid six-hole stretch of golf in the opening round -which resulted in a 4-over 76.
“I just didn’t make enough birdies,” said Woods, who finished his second round at even-par 72, and 4-over 148 for the tournament – missing the cut by four shots.
While it wasn’t a huge surprise to see Woods miss the cut – following a 17 month layoff, it was somewhat of a stunner to see both of his playing partners – the world Nos. 1 and 3 in Jason Day and Dustin Johnson – MC too.
The two superstars both shot 2-over-par 74 in the second round at the much-tamer North Course.
BIG THREE, BIG BUST
Dustin Johnson 72-74 (+2)
Jason Day 73-74 (+3)
Tiger Woods 76-72 (+4)
