Tiger Woods is still not back, at least not according to his play in the early going of the 115th U.S. Open.
Woods carded bogeys on four of his first six holes, and then this happened on the par-5 eighth:
To understand how bad Tiger’s round started, this was actually one of his better holes, as he scrambled to make par following that shot.
That’s how it is these days for the 14-time major winner turned world’s 195th-ranked player.
Last we saw Woods he was carding a career-high 85 at the Memorial on June 6. He likely won’t go that high, but he is already in danger of missing the cut. Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson set the early pace with a pair of 5-under 65s. The cutline will be top 60 and ties, currently putting the cut at plus-1, meaning Tiger will likely need to play below par from here on in to be playing on the weekend.
