Tiger Woods will not be winning his 15th major this weekend. Woods, who was considered one of the favorites heading into this year's U.S. Open, failed to make the cut for the weekend portion of the event. Woods shot a 72 on Friday, finishing at 10-over par for the first two days of the event.

Woods finished the day with four birdies, four bogeys and a double-bogey. It was a better effort than what he put together Thursday (78), but it wasn't enough for him to make the cut.

Woods actually birdied the final two holes he played to give himself a chance. Midday, it looked like ten-over would have a shot at making the cut. But the cut line actually wound up being eight-over. Conditions improved down the stretch Friday, which allowed some players go make runs.

Woods is far from the only household name to miss the cut. Rory McIlroy, who shot an 80 on Thursday, played well Friday but finished at ten-over par as well. Bubba Watson, Jason Day, Charl Schwartzel, Sergo Garcia, Adam Scott and a number of other notable players missed the cut as well.

Woods, who is now 42 years old, has not won a major since the 2008 U.S. Open. That said, he'd performed respectably in a number of tournament this year.

Woods has won 79 PGA Tour events, including 14 majors. He trails only Jack Nicklaus when it comes to major tournament victories.
