Tiger Woods misses cut at Portrush | 148th Open CHampionship | CBS Sports HQ

- Tiger Woods missed the cut at the 2019 Open Championship on Thursday during Round 1; he just had to wait a day and 18 more holes to make it official. Woods followed a 7-over 78 on Thursday with a nice little 1-under 70 on Friday, but a 6-over 148 is not going to get within striking distance of the cut line when play is finished on Friday evening.
Woods (T119) fell five shots back of the 73-man cut, and there were a number of big names -- Rory McIlroy, Keegan Bradley, Brandt Snedeker, Jason Day -- that just missed the line.
Tiger's game was much sharper in the second round. After a day in which he didn't hit even 60 percent of fairways or greens in regulation, Woods hit nearly 80 percent of greens in regulation in the second round. He was able to work the ball a little bit off the tee and with his long irons, too, which is something he lamented not being able to do after Thursday's awful round.
