  • Print

BETHESDA, Md. - Quotes from Tiger Woods after each of the 10 times he has missed the cut on the PGA Tour:

"It had to happen. I can't play my entire career without missing a cut." — 1997 Canadian Open, where Woods missed the cut by one shot at Royal Montreal. It was his 26th start as a pro.

___

"I just had a tough day. Things I don't normally do, I did today." — 2005 Byron Nelson Championship, where Woods missed the cut by one shot and ended his PGA Tour record of 142 consecutive cuts made over seven years.

___

"I played terrible this week. I hit it all over the map — irons, woods, everything. I had a two-way miss. Granted, these fairways are about 300 yards wide, but when you're missing it both ways, you can't aim it." — 2005 Funai Classic at Disney, where he missed the cut by three shots.

___

"I don't care if you had what transpired in my life of recent or not. Poor execution is never going to feel very good." — 2006 U.S. Open at Winged Foot. It was his first tournament since the death of his father. Woods missed the cut for the first time in a major, by three shots.

___

"It was just problem after problem. I kept compounding my problems out there." — 2009 British Open at Turnberry. He missed the cut by one shot.

___

"It is what it is. Whatever it was, it wasn't good enough." — 2010 Quail Hollow Championship, his second tournament since returning from the crisis in his personal life. He had his highest 36-hole score (153) and missed the cut by eight shots, his most ever.

___

"I think it's a step back in the sense that I didn't make the cut and I'm not contending in the tournament. But it's a giant leap forward in the fact that I played two straight weeks healthy." — 2011 PGA Championship, his second tournament since returning from a summer off to let his leg injuries heal. He missed the cut by six shots.

___

"This is one of my favourite tour stops, and unfortunately, I'm just not going to be around for the last two days." — 2012 Wells Fargo Championship. He missed the cut by one shot. Quail Hollow is the only course where he has missed the cut twice. He has not played it since then.

___

"I didn't quite have it." — 2012 Greenbrier Classic. He shot even-par 140 and missed the cut by one shot.

___

"I hate to say it, but I'm really encouraged by what happened this week. I missed the cut by four shots — that's a lot. But the fact that what I was able to do physically, and the speed I had and the distance that I was hitting the golf ball again, I had not done that in a very long time. Felt great today." — 2014 Quicken Loans National. It was his first tournament in more than three months because of back surgery.
