Out-of-sorts Woods misses Quail Hollow cut
TIGER WOODS missed the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship in North Carolina on Friday night.
Woods ended a two-and-a-half-year drought on the PGA Tour with victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March and went to Quail Hollow confident he had solved the ball-striking problems which plagued him at the Masters last month, but once again he found oldhabits creeping back into his swing.
The 14-times Major winner, who shot a one-over-par 73 for an even-par total of 144, said: “It all has to do with my set-up. If I get over the golf ball and I feel uncomfortable I hit it great. But I want to get comfortable, follow my old stuff and I hit it awful.”
Woods totalled 33 putts in the second round, frequently failing to reach the hole with his first attempt on the green, as he missed the cut by one shot and finished 12 strokes behind halfway leader Nick Watney.
