Tiger Woods’ followup to his win at the 2019 Masters was a disappointing one, as the 15-time major champion missed the cut at the second major of the year, the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in New York.
The 43-year-old golfer finished at +5 for the tournament, one stroke back of the cut line. He followed up a +2 on Thursday with a +3 on Friday.
Woods, who didn’t play a competitive round of golf between his win at The Masters and his start at the PGA Championship, was still in OK spirits following the missed cut.
“I’m the Masters champion and 43 years old and that’s a pretty good accomplishment,” Woods told reporters after the round.
That is very true, Tiger.
Woods further explained that his game just wasn’t working the way it needed to this week.
“I just wasn’t moving the way I needed to. That’s the way it goes. There’s going to be days and weeks where it’s just not going to work, and today was one of those days,” he said.

Woods’ next major event will come at the U.S. Open in June, though he’ll likely play a tournament or two before that one tees off.
For now, he has the weekend off.
Brooks Koepka, meanwhile, is going after yet another major championship.
