BETHESDA, Md. –- Tiger Woods missed the cut by four shots at the Quicken Loans National and deemed it “encouraging.”
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to a new world.
Woods followed a first-round 74 with a shaky 75 in the second round at Congressional and will not play the weekend in his first event back after a nearly four-month layoff because of back surgery.
“A lot of positives to take away from these last two days,” Woods said. “I came back four weeks earlier than we thought I could. I had no setbacks. I got my feel for playing tournament golf.”
To be fair, he’s right. The week was a success, even though it’s difficult to view the end result (T-103) as such from a man who has won 14 major championships and 79 PGA Tour victories.
