A short return for Tiger Woods at Congressional


BETHESDA, Md. (AP) -- Tiger Woods didn't last more than 36 holes in his return to competition.

Woods showed plenty of rust with his short game when he ran off four straight bogeys on the back nine Friday at Congressional to end any hopes of sticking around for the weekend at the Quicken Loans National.

He shot a 4-over 75 and missed the cut by four shots. It was only the 10th time Woods has missed a 36-hole cut on the PGA Tour, and 11th time worldwide. He was at 7-over 149.

Marc Leishman, Ricky Barnes and Oliver Goss were tied for the lead at 6-under 136. Goss is making only his second professional start.

Woods had not played since March 9 because of a back injury. He had surgery March 31.

I am so glad he missed the cut. It gets OLD having to watch ever thing he does and the suckup media refuses to acknowledge other people are playing as well.

He's an egotist, just like Obama. His days are numbered

Yes, Obama's days are numbered. I have it on good authority that he'll be out of office on January 20, 2017.

I saw a banner flash across the bottom of the screen while im watching Nascar qualitying "BREAKING NEWS" so I start reading. Tiger woods missed the cut of some golf tournament. WHY THE F IS THAT BREAKING NEWS?!?! What about the other group of guys that didn't make it? I looked up who was leading today and at the top of the article was a picture of tiger but none of any of the 4 guys tied for the lead so far.ENOUGH WITH SHOVING TIER DOWN OUR THROATS! SHOW THE PLAYERS THAT ACTUALLY HAVE A CHANCE OF WINNING!

He is the best golfer of our time and just came off back surgery & almost never misses the cut.

You clearly don't care for him, but him missing the cut is news.

Personally I am glad he missed the cut, he needs to nurse that injury back slowly so he doesn't end up sitting on the sidelines.

If he wasn't one of the host's for this tourney he wouldn't have even played it, so I give him some props for that.

I am surprised he did not walk off, as he has done in the past, if he was having a bad round.

Maybe when Tiger has a bad round, its because he blames himself - not the course, not the other players and not the weather like the prima donnas like Mickelson or the never-weres like Johnny "Yips" Miller.

NOW.... what have you got left? No family or anyone to turn to. Sad. Money and notoriety can't buy you love or happiness.

Maybe golf, for Tiger, is in his rearview mirror.

And in separate news..........an anonymous caller asked the manager of the Bethesda area Hooters if he'd keep the bar open for the next 48 hours straight.

That was for an informal GOP Congressional strategy meeting.

Actually, it was for a Kennedy Family reunion - word is they were going to try to create another waitress sandwich... but the majority of the males were more interested in hitting on the male bartender.

The rats held their formal "I dig Hillary's Ass" party and she indeed had the biggest ass at Hooters.
