PGA Tour Introduces Special Exemption for Tiger Woods

The PGA Tour has announced the creation of a special sponsor exemption specifically for Tiger Woods, acknowledging his “exceptional lifetime achievement.” This exemption will allow Woods to participate in the eight prestigious signature events, featuring limited fields, substantial prize money, and significant FedEx Cup points. The decision was communicated to tour members in a memo on Tuesday night.

A Special Category for Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods, a 15-time major champion and winner of 82 PGA Tour events, has faced significant challenges in recent years, particularly following severe injuries from a car accident in February 2021. Despite these setbacks, Woods’ influence and contributions to the sport remain unparalleled. Recognizing this, the PGA Tour policy board approved the special exemption during a joint meeting with the PGA Tour Enterprises board of directors in Hartford, Connecticut. “An additional sponsor exemption will be created to recognize Tiger Woods in his own category as a player who has reached an exceptional lifetime achievement threshold of 80+ career wins,” the tour’s memo stated.

The exemption grants Woods the opportunity to compete in the season’s eight signature events, which include The Sentry, AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Genesis Invitational, Arnold Palmer Invitational, RBC Heritage, Wells Fargo Championship, Memorial Tournament, and the Travelers Championship. Normally, Woods would not qualify for these events due to his limited participation in recent seasons. The policy board is also considering the implementation of a 36-hole cut for these signature events, a feature currently present only in the Genesis Invitational, Arnold Palmer Invitational, and the Memorial Tournament. The tour said it would also develop an alternate list that would ensure that each of the signature events had a field of 72 players. The Travelers Championship has only 71 players after Rory McIlroy withdrew Monday.

US Open 2024 – Tiger Woods: ” It’s Just So Hard To Get Back”

In the first round of the US Open 2024, Tiger Woods faced a challenging day on the course, struggling to capitalize on his strong driving game. Despite hitting his drives with consistent accuracy, Woods found himself grappling with his iron play and putting, leading to a round that left him with much to improve on. Although Tiger was able to start his round with a birdie, the problems began at the end of the first half of the course. One bogey after another landed on Woods’ scorecard. After 18 holes, the 15-time major champion is on four over par and will have to fight for the cut on Friday.

Tiger Woods struggles on the first day of the US Open 2024

THE MODERATOR: Tiger, give us an opening statement about your round today.

TIGER WOODS: Well, I didn’t hit my irons particularly well. Didn’t putt that great. Drove it on the string all day. Unfortunately I just didn’t capitalize on it.

Q. Tiger, the greens here are pretty nuance. Sometimes you have to play away. Was it more you being conservative with your approach shots or were you not hitting them in the spots you wanted to?

TIGER WOODS: Both. I was somewhat conservative in some of my end points. Then again, I didn’t hit the ball very well either. It added upped to quite a bit of distance away from the flag.

It’s not where I wanted to be on a lot of the holes. It just ended up being that far away because I wasn’t as sharp as I needed to be.

Q. Different setup than a usual U.S. Open. There’s no rough. Native areas. Do you like that kind of test as opposed to what we’re used to seeing?

TIGER WOODS: Well, depends on the golf course. This golf course is all about the greens. The complexes are just so difficult and so severe that, I mean, I think 1-under par is only in fifth. There aren’t that many scores that are low.

It’s hard to get the ball close. In most golf courses you play, you hit shots into where it’s feeding off of slopes into flags, whereas collecting. Here everything is repelling. It’s just hard to get the ball on top of the shelves.

You know if you miss it short side, it’s an auto bogey or higher. Being aggressive to a conservative line is I think how you need to play this particular golf course.

Q. You’ve spoken a few times this year about trying to increase your overall number of holes played and shots taken. Do you feel like your game is accumulating as the year goes on or something more a week-to-week basis?

TIGER WOODS: I’m physically getting better as the year has gone on. I just haven’t been able to play as much because I just don’t want to hurt myself pre, then I won’t be able to play in the major championships.

It’s pick your poison, right? Play a lot with the potential of not playing, or not playing and fight being not as sharp.

Q. Tiger, similar note. Physically you got time now before tomorrow.

TIGER WOODS: Yeah.

Q. What can you do between now and then to make some adjustments and what are you going to be able to do?

TIGER WOODS: Well, I’m hoping I don’t get too tight in the car ride back, that maybe I can hit a few. I can get tight in air-conditioning. Get back there, there’s usually no point.

I’d like to hit a few putts. My speed was not quite there. I think I 3-putted, what, two or three times today. If I clean that up, if I get a couple iron shots not as loose as I did, I’m right there at even par.

It can go so far the other way here, the wrong way. It’s just so hard to get back. This is a golf course that doesn’t give up a whole lot of birdies. It gives up a lot of bogeys and higher.

I thought I did the one thing I needed to do today, which is drive the ball well. I did that, I just didn’t capitalize on any of it.

Q. Felt like you were hitting your irons good coming in, practice days?

TIGER WOODS: They were okay. It wasn’t as good as I’d like. I was pretty one-dimensional early in the week, which is interesting. I was drawing the ball a lot. Now I’m cutting the ball a lot. Welcome to golf (smiling).

Q. Is there anything about the course conditions today that surprised you?

TIGER WOODS: No. The greens are right where they want ’em. A lot of the pins were right up on the crest of the green. A lot of the pins were — if you dumped the ball in the middle of the green, it was into the grain then downgrain, into the grain and then downgrain. That’s how the golf course is going to be set up. We know that going in here. Just a matter of putting the ball in correct spots and just making a bunch of pars and occasionally a birdie here and there, it can be done.

THE MODERATOR: Thank you.

TIGER WOODS: Thank you.

Tiger Woods US Open Golf 2024 – A Look at His Past Performances

Tiger Woods is undeniably one of the greatest golfers of all time, with an illustrious career that has seen numerous victories and records. As we look forward to the US Open Golf 2024, golf enthusiasts worldwide are keen to see how the legendary golfer will perform. With the tournament set to take place at Pinehurst No.2, a venue rich in history and challenges, it’s an opportune moment to review Tiger Woods’ performances in the US Open over the past few years.

Despite experiencing numerous injuries and surgeries, Tiger Woods has shown remarkable resilience and determination in recent times. His performances in the US Open have been mixed, reflecting both his extraordinary talent and the physical challenges he has faced. In 2019, Woods finished tied for 21st at Pebble Beach, a venue where he had previously won in 2000. The subsequent years have seen varied results, with Woods missing the cut in 2020 at Winged Foot and struggling in 2021 as he continued to recover from a car accident that severely impacted his mobility and performance.

Tiger Woods’ US Open Performances: A Detailed Look

The US Open Golf is one of the most challenging tournaments in professional golf, known for its difficult courses and demanding conditions. Woods’ journey in this major championship has been a roller-coaster ride in recent years. In 2019, at Pebble Beach, Woods demonstrated his prowess by securing a respectable tied 21st finish despite stiff competition and challenging weather conditions. His unmatched determination and skill were evident as he navigated the treacherous course.

2020 saw the US Open hosted at Winged Foot, a notoriously difficult venue. Unfortunately, Tiger Woods struggled with the course’s conditions and missed the cut. This result highlighted the unpredictability of the sport and the fine margins between success and failure at such an elite level. In 2021, Woods withdrew from the US Open as he focused on his recovery from a serious car accident that left the golf world questioning whether he would ever compete at the highest level again.

As we approach the US Open Golf 2024, there’s renewed hope and excitement surrounding Tiger Woods. Pinehurst No. 2, the chosen venue for this year’s tournament, is known for its challenging course layout and historical significance. Woods has had mixed results at Pinehurst in the past, finishing tied 3rd in 1999 and 17th in 2005. His experience and strategic acumen will be crucial as he prepares to take on this formidable course once again.

PGA Championship 2024: Tiger Woods Fails to Make the Cut in Valhalla

Tiger Woods made a solid start to the PGA Championship 2024 with a round of 72, but it became apparent early on on the second day of the tournament that the cut would be out of reach for the golf legend. A triple bogey on the second hole was followed by a bogey on the third hole. A second triple bogey followed on the next hole, meaning Woods’ chances of making the cut were already buried. Tiger actually played a good round the rest of the day with two birdies and two bogeys. He even recorded another birdie on the last hole to bring the tournament to a conciliatory close.

PGA Championship 2024 – Woods: “Just kept making mistakes”

Q. How would you characterize your week?

TIGER WOODS: The week, it was a great week being here, being here at Valhalla, and unfortunately my scores did not indicate how the people treated me and how great a week I had. Unfortunately, I hit too many shots.

Q. Specifically your play today, what do you think led to too many shots?

TIGER WOODS: Well, I got off to bad start and the rough grabbed me at 2. No sand in the bunker as well. Just made a mistake there. I compounded the problem there at 4. Just kept making mistakes and things you can’t do, not just in tournaments but in majors especially. And I just kept making them. I hung around for most of the day but unfortunately the damage was done early.

Q. What’s that like when you put yourself so far behind early, it’s not looking good? What do you get out of playing hard the rest of the way, outside of pride?

TIGER WOODS: Just keep fighting. Keep the pedal on, keep fighting, keep grinding, keep working hard at posting the best score that I can possibly post today. That’s all I can do. It’s going to be a lot, but I’m going to fight until the end.

Q. You said you’re getting stronger. Are you still confident the game will get better?

TIGER WOODS: It will. In time. I just got to — I need to play more. Unfortunately, I just haven’t played a whole lot of tournaments, and not a whole lot of tournaments on my schedule either. Hopefully everything will somehow come together in my practice sessions at home and be ready for
Pinehurst.

Q. Is it fair to say you’re better physically now than you were a month ago?

TIGER WOODS: Yeah.

Q. And also, what do you build on now? What do you like that you feel like you can build on to improve, say, for Pinehurst?

TIGER WOODS: Yeah, I need to clean up my rounds. But also — physically, yes, I am better than I was a month ago. I still have more ways to go, lots of improvement to go physically, and hopefully my team and I can get that done pre-Pinehurst and going into it.

Q. You talked about the desire to win again. You thought you could still win again. And yet you’re spending lot of time on the PGA TOUR policy board, which you obviously spend a lot of focus on that as well. Is there one that’s more important to you than the other?

TIGER WOODS: No, they’re both equally important to me, playing and my responsibilities as a player director, whether it’s on policy board or it’s on the enterprise board. All three are important in their own different ways. Different ways that, one, for me playing for pride and what I can do out here, but also off the golf course the impact and responsibility that I have as a player director and as a representative of the players and what I can do off the golf course to help this tour.

Q. Is the management part of that second thing, has that been a difficult transition in regards to trying to get your game together?

TIGER WOODS: Well, if you ask any of the player directors, we just don’t sleep much. There’s a lot of late nights and zoom calls at odd hours of the night, all throughout the night, and lots of e-mails to read. These are all things that I signed up for as a player director and ways that I can help, and hopefully I can make that impact and we’ve done that so far, and hopefully we can make more of an impact.

Q. Curious, as a guy who is playing the majors for 30 years and has pretty much seen everything, what did you make of this morning?

TIGER WOODS: Unfortunate. That’s all I can say. It was an unfortunate incident and I don’t know what has played out since then, but hopefully everything works out.

PGA Championship 2024 – Tiger Woods: “You Can’t Win a Tournament Unless You Make the Cut”

Tiger Woods’ first round of the PGA Championship 2024 didn’t come easy to the 15-time major champion. After two finishing bogeys he signed a round of one over par, putting him for now in the middle of the field.

His round started with an early bogey on 11, after he missed the green on the par-3. A 17 ft 11 in putt got him that shot back in 13, but a journey into the rough of the 15th hole cost Woods one more shot on his first nine. While he couldn’t take advantage of the par-5 18, he evened out his score with a birdie on 3 after a perfect tee shot. Tiger Woods got a glimpse of one under par despite landing in the green bunker on 7, but two bogeys caused by three-putts dragged his score back to a one over par 72.

Tiger Woods on his first round at the PGA Championship 2024

Q. Tiger, it looked like you were moving pretty well physically. Do you feel like — I know every day is different for you, but do you feel like zooming out you’re getting stronger?

TIGER WOODS: I am getting stronger for sure. It’s just that I just don’t play a whole lot of competitive rounds. I haven’t played since the Masters. So it’s a little bit different than being at home and playing a flat Florida course.

Q. You spoke about what happened Saturday at Augusta. Is that a thing you know how your body — can you tell the night before? Do you not know until the morning of or when you start swinging the club?

TIGER WOODS: Each day is a little bit different. Some days, it’s better than others. It’s just the way it is. My body is just that way. Some days, it feels great, and other days, a bit of a struggle.

Q. Do you have a target ball speed in mind or a number where you can say, I’m fast or slow today?

TIGER WOODS: No, I don’t even know what my ball speed is. I couldn’t tell you. I do at home on the range, but when I’m out here at a tournament, I don’t look at any of that. I’m just trying to hit shots and hit the ball on my numbers more than anything else.

Q. How much of the first green could you see for your second shot on the first?

TIGER WOODS: I could see the whole green. I could see it underneath the trees. I just had to go around a few trees. Hit a nice little draw 8-iron in there. I was expecting to hit it just left of the green and chip back up, but it dug in and landed soft and dug in and had a 25-footer.

Q. How would you rate that shot in terms of difficulty?

TIGER WOODS: (Laughing). You’ve seen me play. I’ve hit a few shots out of the trees.

Q. You said the other day you wish you were a little sharper. In which areas did you think you were better than you thought you might be or maybe were you not — were you sort of where you thought you were today?

TIGER WOODS: It’s just the competitive flow. It took me probably three holes to get back into competitive flow again and get a feel for hitting the ball out there in competition, adrenaline, temperatures, green speeds. These are all things that normally I adjust to very quickly, and it just took me a few holes to get into it.

Made that putt on 12 and got me going and made another putt on 13.

Q. In the past few years, even if you’ve had to withdraw from majors, you’ve still made the cut. You’ve still succeeded in doing so. I’m wondering if you think there’s an art to playing a certain way and grinding out a made cut that you seem to understand better than others?

TIGER WOODS: Well, you can’t win a tournament unless you make the cut. That’s the whole idea is get to the weekend so that you can participate and have a chance to win.

I’ve been on the cut number and have won tournaments, or I’ve been ahead and leading tournaments and I’ve won tournaments. But you have to get to the weekend in order to win a golf tournament.

Q. I thought the rough was more difficult than what I was expecting after watching practice rounds. Could you talk about that? And I know the three-putt on 9 was frustrating, but I thought you —

TIGER WOODS: And 8.

Q. You had more than 90 feet in putts today. Could you address those two.

TIGER WOODS: Well, I three-whipped the last two holes. Wasn’t very good. Bad speed on 8; whipped it past the hole.

And 9, hit it short. Hit it off the heel of the putt and blocked the second one. So wasn’t very good on the last two holes.

But what was the first part of the question?

Q. The rough.

TIGER WOODS: Yeah, the rough is dense. It’s just very dense. With the rain we got and just the moisture on it, I know they’ve topped it off, but it’s just really lush.

You can get lies where it sits up. You can get a 3-wood on it. And there are other lies — a couple times I had to pitch out sideways. I laid up at 13 and 14 — sorry, 15.

Depends on the lie, and you don’t have to worry about that if you drive it in the fairway, and I just need to do a better job of that.

Q. Obviously most of you guys, you don’t win most weeks. You have to be very resilient. What’s the moment in your career or the stretch of golf that you’ve had in your career where you’re proudest of the resilience that you showed?

TIGER WOODS: Well, I think that I’ve made a few cuts in a row, what was it, 140-some odd.

So you have to just grind it out. It’s a marathon. Major championships are a long grind. It’s just plotting along. It’s not a sprint. It’s just a grind.

I had a few years where I was able to participate for a very long time.

PGA Championship 2024: Tiger Woods on His Possible Ryder Cup Captaincy “We’re Still Talking”

Before the start of the 2024 PGA Championship Tiger Woods talks about his expectations and recent experiences at the Masters in April. The “GOAT” also states, that the Ryder Cup captaincy is still under discussion.

PGA Championship 2024: Tiger Woods “I wish my game was a little bit sharper”

THE MODERATOR:  You were part of the one of the most memorable finishes in this championship’s history back in 2000. When you look back at that PGA, what do you remember most?

TIGER WOODS: Well, I just remember the pressure that I felt, the chance, an opportunity to do something that Ben Hogan did in 1953. The summer was a whirlwind. I was playing well, then coming into this event, being able to play in Jack’s — play with Jack in his last PGA Championship, and also just the timeline. Jack played with Gene Sarazen in his last PGA, and I was playing with Jack in his last PGA, so just the connection with all that.

Obviously making a putt on 18 and getting into the playoff and making a nice putt on the 16th hole, running after it. A lot of great memories from that week. To be able to go head-to-head with Bob May, who was arguably probably one of the best junior golfers that Southern Cal ever produced. It was a fun week and a fun — unbelievable moment, really.

Q. Expanding on that a little bit. When you look at this great collection of victories and majors you’ve won, where does that Sunday with Bob May fit in?

TIGER WOODS: Well, I think that the duel between us both, I think if I remember this correctly, Bob shot three straight 66s, and our back nine, we both shot 31 on the back nine. With leading a championship and both of us playing as well as we did, with all of that pressure and we kept feeding off of one another. He would make a putt, I would make a putt, I would make a putt, he would make a putt. It was a fun back nine.

That was the first year they went to the three-hole playoff, and when we got in at the scoring table, I remember that we were informed it was a three-hole playoff and Bob was completely shocked by that because I don’t think that it really got out that much that potentially it could be the way it plays out, and going back to 16, as I said, I made a nice putt there, ran after it. He made an unbelievable chip from the right rough and almost holed it. Again, we never really missed shots on that back nine and then in the three-hole playoff. For us to shoot those low of scores, it was special.

Q. Since the last time that you were here in 2014 do you feel like the course has changed a great deal or is it pretty much the same place?

TIGER WOODS: It’s gotten bigger. Gotten a little bit longer. I think they extended six tees since we played in 2014. Opened up some of the areas so there’s more flow, less trees. Definitely different than when we played in 2000. But it’s still the same framework that we played in 2000. So, the same corridors, but it’s just gotten a little bit bigger, a little bit longer, just like all golf courses or all championships that we go to now. I’m looking forward to one day they say we shortened this hole up, because it seems like every time we come back and play it’s always getting longer.

Q. State of your game, state of your body and state of your ability to play what’s a pretty hilly golf course?

TIGER WOODS: Yeah, my body’s okay. It is what it is. I wish my game was a little bit sharper. Again, I don’t have a lot of competitive reps, so I am having to rely on my practice sessions and getting stuff done either at home or here on-site.

But at the end of the day, I need to be ready mentally and physically come Thursday, and these days of practicing, eating on the golf course, that’s one of the reasons I came up here on Sunday was to knock off some of the work that I have to do in charting greens, get all that stuff done early, so I can focus on literally playing and plotting my way around.

Q. We just had Max in here earlier this morning and he was talking about the two rounds he played with you at Augusta and was raving about what you still do on the golf course and the shots you’re still able to hit. Curious, how much of a tease is it for you when you know you still have it in there even at this age and how do you kind of deal with that as you go?

TIGER WOODS: Yeah, I can still hit shots. It’s getting around is more of the difficulty that I face day-to-day and the recovery of pushing myself either in practice or in competition days. You saw it at Augusta. I was there after two days and didn’t do very well on the weekend.

Q. As a dad who is a golf professional, what advice would you have for Scottie Scheffler?

TIGER WOODS: Get some sleep. (Smiling.) I mean, he’s got obviously he and Meredith, fantastic, having their first, and those are — as we all of us who have had children, those are some tough years and ahead of them.

As I said, try and get some rest as much as you possibly can. He’s the No. 1 player in the world, and having a great, stable family life at home is important to having a great life out here on TOUR.

Q. The crowds you still see for practice rounds or even just the people who come out to watch you now at 48, do you feel differently when you see that now as opposed to even maybe 10 years ago or five years ago?

TIGER WOODS: I think that I appreciate it more now, just the fact that I don’t come out here very often. I don’t play much, and I’m at home where it’s quiet and it’s so different to coming out to practice rounds when there’s thousands of people out there like it was at Augusta.

A bunch of people came out today. Unfortunately the weather didn’t really cooperate. I’m sure there will be a lot more tomorrow now that it’s cleared out. But appreciating the warmth and the support of the fans is something that I probably 10 years ago certainly didn’t appreciate that then as much as I do now.

Q. Rory said last week in Charlotte that you and him see the future of golf a little bit differently. What’s your position, what do you see as the future?

TIGER WOODS: Well I think that we see the — it’s good to see it differently, but collectively as a whole we want to see whatever’s best for all the players, the fans, and the state of golf. How we get there, that’s to be determined, but the fact that we’re in this together and in this fight together to make golf better is what it’s all about.

Q. Justin mentioned earlier when he was in here that one of his core memories here is watching you when he was a kid win in 2000 here. What’s your sense for what as close as you are to him what this means for him to have this championship in his hometown?

TIGER WOODS: Well I think that, I don’t know if JT was in diapers still or not, but I think that having a major come to your hometown where you grew up and it’s special for him, it’s special for Mike and Jenny and everyone who’s been involved in his life.

This is his hometown. The fact that he’s able to play a major championship where he grew up is special. Unfortunately I can’t say that I ever have, just because I missed the U.S. Open at LA Country Club. It would have been nice to play in my hometown. But to have JT come here and — he’s going to get some appreciation from the fans and the ovations are going to be loud for him, as they should be.

Q. You said at the Masters that you were going to talk to Seth after that week about maybe captaining next year’s Ryder Cup team. Did that meeting take place, and if so, is there any update?

TIGER WOODS: We’re still talking. There’s nothing that has been confirmed yet. We’re still working on what that might look like. Also whether or not I have the time to do it. I’m dedicating my so much time to what we’re doing with the PGA TOUR, I don’t want to not fulfill the role of the captaincy if I can’t do it. What that all entails and representing Team USA and the commitments to the PGA of America, the players, and the fans and as I said, all of Team USA. I need to feel that I can give the amount of time that it deserves.

Q. Earlier you mentioned the state of golf and fans. Wondering from your advantage point where you think that relationship stands now and why?

TIGER WOODS: I think the fans are probably as tired as we are of the talk of not being about the game of golf and about not being about the players. It’s about what LIV is doing, what we’re doing, players coming back, players leaving, the fans just want to see us play together. How do we get there is to be determined.

Tiger Woods After The Masters 2024: “It Was A Good Week”

Tiger Woods finishes The Masters 2024 in 60th place. The 48-year-old carded a round of 77 (+5) at Augusta National on Sunday. This brought his overall score down to 16 over par. That was certainly not the result the four-time winner of the tournament had in mind. But considering that Woods has not yet played a tournament over four rounds this year, his performance before the weekend is remarkable.

Tiger Woods Finishes 60th at The Masters 2024

On Saturday, however, the slump followed. The 82 deprived Woods of any chance of a top finish. He then improved his score once again on Sunday. His fellow player, amateur Neil Shipley, experienced a relatively relaxed Woods, who chatted with him as he walked down the fairways.

In an interview after the final round of The Masters, Woods spoke about the challenges of the week, why he needs to prepare better for the upcoming majors and why the Masters week was a good week despite everything.

Tiger Woods After The Masters 2024: “It was a good week”

Question: Tiger, it’s remarkable how you can be competitive for a couple of days without any reps. How can you turn two rounds into four moving forward?

Tiger Woods: Well, this is a golf course I knew going into it, so I’m going to do my homework going forward at Pinehurst, Valhalla and Troon, but that’s kind of the game plan. It’s always nice coming back here because I know the golf course, I know how to play it. I can kind of simulate shots. Granted, it’s never quite the same as getting out here and doing it. Same thing, I heard there’s some changes at the next couple sites. So got to get up there early and check them out.

Question: What will be the challenge to get ready for Valhalla, if that’s the next one?

Tiger Woods: Well, just keep lifting, keep the motor going, keep the body moving, keep getting stronger, keep progressing. Hopefully the practice sessions will keep getting longer.

Question: Tiger, no one’s asked you about the meeting with Yasir in the Bahamas last month. What were your impressions of him? Do you feel like you’re any closer to a deal with him?

Tiger Woods: I don’t know if we’re closer, but certainly we’re headed in the right direction. That was a very positive meeting, and I think both sides came away from the meeting feeling positive.

Question: What’s the one thing this weekend that was the biggest challenge?

Tiger Woods: Well, I think that just the wind and what it was doing out here to the golf shots and the balls and putting, how difficult the course was playing. It doesn’t take much to get out of position here. Unfortunately, I got out of position a lot yesterday and a couple times today.

Question: Tiger, in terms of the achievement, not the outcome of the tournament, but the achievement for you personally, how do you rate this performance this week?

Tiger Woods: It was a good week. It was a good week all around. I think that coming in here, not having played a full tournament in a very long time, it was a good fight on Thursday and Friday. Unfortunately yesterday it didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted it to. Today the round that I — the way that Tom is playing I thought I had in my system. Unfortunately, I didn’t produce it.

The Masters Tournament 2024: Tiger Woods Secures Cut Record at Augusta

On the second day of The Masters Tournament 2024, Tiger Woods added another impressive record to his CV. Thanks to a solid round of 72, the five-time Masters winner secured the cut, which is expected to be +4. Woods thus made the cut at Augusta for the 24th time in a row and is now the sole record holder.

The Masters Tournament 2024: Tiger Woods with 24 made cuts in a row

The second day of The Masters Tournament 2024 was a tough one for Tiger Woods: after his first round was interrupted after 13 holes due to the onset of darkness, the five-time Masters winner was forced to play 23 holes on Friday. Woods, who has been struggling with pain throughout, visibly lost his rhythm at the start of the second day and recorded two bogeys on the last five holes at the end of his first round. With a round of 73 behind him, the 48-year-old went into round two accordingly. This was an up-and-down affair for Woods, with four bogeys and four birdies, he ultimately posted a strong round of 72 to secure the cut at this year’s Masters.

Until this moment, Tiger Woods shared the record for the most cuts made at the US Masters with the two other golf legends Gary Player and Fred Couples. However, with his 24th cut in a row, Woods overtook them and is now the sole record holder. The visibly exhausted 48-year-old left the course for the clubhouse to rapturous applause and showed his will to win: “It means I have a chance going into the weekend. I’m here. I have a chance to win the golf tournament. I don’t know if they’re all going to finish today, but I’m done. I got my two rounds in. Just need some food and some caffeine, and I’ll be good to go.”
