Did Tiger Woods Make the Weekend Cut at PGA Championship 2019?

One month after roaring back to the top of the golfing world by winning the Masters Championship, Tiger Woods came up short Friday, failing to make the cut for weekend play at the PGA Championship.

Woods shot a 3-over par 73 in the second round at Bethpage Black on Friday in Farmingdale, New York.

"It's disappointing. I just didn't quite have it," Woods told reporters at a press conference after his second round. "Unfortunately I just didn't play well, didn't do all the little things I needed to do correctly to post good scores and put myself in position to shoot good scores."

Woods shot 2-over in Thursday's opening round, and he still had a chance to make the cut of 4-over par on the 18th hole on Friday. After blistering his tee shot and landing it on the fairway of the par-4, 411-yard hole, his second shot hit the green and rolled back into the rough. On the third shot, his putt came within a few feet of the cup, setting up a putt for par to end his play.

Woods has now missed the cut three times in his last four PGA Championship appearances. He missed it in 2014 and 2015 when he battled through injuries, and he didn't play the PGA in 2016 and 2017 before coming back last year and finishing second to Brooks Koepka, the clubhouse leader this year after the first 36 holes.

Koepka's 12-under par through two rounds is the record for 36 holes in PGA Championship history.

After Woods addressed his own disappointment at this year's PGA Championship, reporters in the crowd peppered him with questions about Koepka. Woods said the 29-year-old Koepka is playing great golf right now, especially in the majors. Woods, 43, still reflected on his Masters title before retiring to the clubhouse.

"I've enjoyed being the Masters champion again and the PGA was a quick turnaround," Woods said.

Koepka has a 7-shot lead over Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth, who both sit at 5-under. Five players are tied for fourth at 4-under, including Dustin Johnson.

The PGA Championship will conclude Saturday and Sunday. Coverage begins on TNT at 11 a.m. ET each day, with coverage then switching to CBS at 2 p.m. on both days.

The next major championship will be the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach from June 13-16.
