Tiger Woods misses cut in USPGA Championship

Tiger Woods was a shadow of his former self as he missed only his third cut in a major as a professional with a second-round 73 in the US PGA.

The former world number one ended 10 over par to miss the cut by a distance after a day of struggles in Atlanta.

Woods shot a seven-over 77 on Thursday, his worst opening round ever on the PGA Tour, and was left needing a score of -3 or -4 on Friday to have a chance of making the top 70 players and making the cut.

But the 35-year-old Woods was a shadow of his best, landing in many bunkers and struggling with his distance control. Woods dropped shots at the fifth and seventh before showing some control with back-to-back birdies at eight and nine.

But a two-hole sequence soon after the turn sealed his fate. He made a double bogey after splashing from a bunker through the green on the 11th and into the water, and then hooked into trees twice on the long 12th to notch another double bogey.
