Tiger Woods fires second-round 76, will miss Genesis Open cut

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ trip to Los Angeles is over sooner than he’d hoped. Woods fired a 5-over 76 during the second round of the Genesis Open to miss the presumed cut at Riviera by four strokes (the second round won’t be completed until Saturday morning due to darkness).

Hopes were high Woods would continue to build on a T-23 finish at the Farmers Insurance Open. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case, as the driving woes that plagued him at Torrey Pines followed him to the Riv, despite changing shafts in his TaylorMade M3.

Wayward off the tee, Woods made eight bogeys Friday, unable to grind out a decent score as he did with his opening-round 1-over 72. He was unable to rely on his putter the way did in this first round, three-putting back-to-back holes (No. 11 and 12). A stretch of three straight bogeys sunk Woods’ hopes of hanging around for the weekend.

We won’t have to wait long to see the Big Cat back in action, however, as Woods committed to next week’s Honda Classic at PGA National in Florida. Woods most recently put a peg in the ground at the course in 2014, where he ultimately withdrew due to back spasms.

The 79-time PGA Tour winner hasn’t teed it in back-to-back weeks since 2015, so while fans may not be encouraged by his play, at least he continues to be free from any issues with his surgically repaired back.

    Lets have a moment of silence for Mr Woods, he needs it. The Golf Channel is devastated, Kelly is thinking suicide, and the Schnoz Rich Lerner can’t even function.

    The former best in the World has become inadequate, but he had his day. He is leaving a legacy though of deflowering Waitrese and Concierges around the world, too bad.

    I would rather watch paint dry than this old wannabe. I heard he is quite the ladies man though!

    Perhaps it’s time for Tiger to call Jay Haas, Fred Funk, Kenny Perry, and Fred Couples to ask them how to be competitive on the regular tour past 50.

    I don’t get it. What is so appealing about watching a guy miss fairways, pull irons and miss easy putts? He was a nice player in his time but his time is now over. Tiger is not relevant anymore. There is a new generation of players that are exciting to watch.

    Sadly Taylor Made pays to put their latest gimic drivers into these guys hands and they suffer with accuracy. Ted Potter was straight and accurate and smoked DJ, Rory and Day last week despite being 50 yards behind them.

    This week you have Patrick Cantlay an average hitter and Ryan Moore with higher spinning drivers leading on a very long course.

    If he went to a Cally, Titleist or Ping higher spinning drivers he would be much more accurate.

    The good news is he appears healthy for now. The bad news is he is not even close to being competitive against these young studs on tour. It is not more reps unfortunately. His swing is flawed. It’s causing a 2 way miss. It might be the swing he has to do to protect his back. To his credit probably only he and Phil could shoot those scores with that swing!

    I’d much rather watch Langer than sicko Eldrick

    Tiger is too talented not to win again . Taylormade should make him a zero iron as a driver replacement . Tiger is amongst the best long iron players of all time .

      Was the best long iron player….

      Paolo,
      Zero iron = Zero fairways. The guy is done.

    Still holding out for Tiger, one thing I learned from being there today, why would anyone pay $500 or more for a driver, I watched a lot of the best players in the world missing fairway after fairway using the newest drivers money can buy. If the best players in the world cannot find a fairway with the best drivers (and you can be sure an expert is setting them up not a guy form Dicks) why do we think a driver is going to fit us or be better then the one already in the bag????

    Get a grip folks he is done. I like watching the young guys who can actually hit a fairway and make a putt.

    Hey Gerald, have fun sniffing Tiger’s jock strap!

    That course looked brutal! I likely would be walking away with a 120 easily. And I am a 90s shooter. Putting and hitting out of the rough humble us all unless we are too proud to admit it!

      Feb 17, 2018 at 7:57 am

      Speak for yourself…..and 90 shooters should not be posting on GWX…..:)

    Agreed Dat! Sadly the comment poster above yours has no clue…they need to stop sniffing glue. Don’t tell us we are too old and banged up…prove it with your golf game…go hard or go home!

    Yeah right, more reps’ll do it!! Please…..go tell that to Steve Lowry, Ben Curtis, Vijay Sling, John Huston, and Brad Faxon! When your golf clock is done, u’r DONE!! His high level days are OVA! And then the Tour tries to sugar coat the TV exposure by forcing him into a JT and Rory tee time! Not happening. Lets’s focus on the other kids coming up, dude has his due. NEXT!!!

      Back atcha! Maybe you should take your own advice! I guess you don’t want me watching the PGA this weekend…good for you…I have better things to do that won’t put me to sleep watching Rory or others…yawn!

    Just needs to add some more stops to the schedule. You have to play at a high level often to have a shot at doing well.
