PGA Championship Cut Line: Tiger Woods Headed Home After Disastrous Two Rounds

Noted golf enthusiast Tiger Woods isn't too enthusiastic after his performance in the first two rounds in the 2011 PGA Championship. After a disasterous 7-over on Thursday, Tiger shot 3-over to finish 10-over par overall and for the first time in his career, Woods will miss the cut at a PGA Championship in 14 tries.

It only the fourth time Woods has missed the cut at a major championship, though they are starting to become slightly more frequent. He failed to make the cut at the 1996 Masters, the 2006 U.S. Open and the 2009 British Open. Missing the cut also means Woods will not qualify for the Tour's FedEx Cup playoff series.

Tiger hit five double bogeys in his first 30 holes at Atlanta Athletics Club, the first time he's ever had five double-bogeys in any tournament as a professional. Tiger did save some face by knocking down birdies on 13 and 15, but it was too little too late. A bogey on the final hole was insult to injury.

Now Tiger will have to think about his immediate future plans. With no FedEx Cup, he can continue playing overseas and already has some Australian and Asian appearances lined up. It is possible, however, that he has played his final PGA event for 2011.
