Tiger Woods Faces Uncertain Future at U.S. Open After Missing Cut at Pinehurst

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods hints at possibly playing his final U.S. Open after missing the cut at Pinehurst with a three-over-par 73. Despite a limited schedule post-2021 car crash, Woods remains uncertain about future appearances.

United States (Bollywood Fever): Fifteen-time major winner Tiger Woods indicated that this U.S. Open might be his last, after scoring a three-over-par 73, resulting in a seven-over for the week and missing the cut at Pinehurst on Friday. Following a severe car crash in 2021, Woods has participated in a limited number of competitions and was non-committal about playing in future national opens after also missing the cut at the PGA Championship last month.

“I thought I played well enough to be up there in contention. It just didn’t work out,” said Woods, who had accepted a special exemption to compete this week. “As far as my last Open Championship or U.S. Open Championship, I don’t know what that is. It may or may not be.”

Woods was among several notable golfers who didn’t make it through Friday’s challenging course at Pinehurst. Phil Mickelson, aiming for a career grand slam, finished near the bottom of the leaderboard at 15-over par with a score of 76. His LIV Golf colleague Dustin Johnson, the 2016 winner, ended his round with a 75, finishing nine-over par. Twice PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas scored 74 and concluded at 11-over par after 36 holes.

American Max Homa, who tied for third at this year’s Masters, and Norwegian Viktor Hovland, who scored 68, both missed the cut at six-over par. World number one Scottie Scheffler struggled with his putting on Friday, barely making the cut at five-over par through 36 holes. “I just couldn’t get the putts to fall,” he told reporters. “This golf course can be unpredictable at times, and maybe it got the better of me the last couple days.”
