Tiger likely to miss cut at Wells Fargo

Tiger Woods is projected to miss the cut after a dismal two rounds at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Woods shot a one-over par 73 on Friday, leaving him at even-par for the tournament and one shot below the projected cut.

The 36-year-old finished 13 shots behind current leader Nick Watney, who fired a 64 in the second round to move to 12-under at Quail Hollow in Charlotte.

Woods has missed the cut only seven times in his career.

It would be the first time that the 14-time major winner has missed the cut twice at the same event, having also crashed out at Quail Hollow two years ago.

From 1998 to 2005, Woods set a PGA Tour record by making the cut at 142 straight events.

Woods appeared to have finally regained his usual form in late March, when he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational for his first PGA Tour win since 2009.

But he followed that up with a disappointing five-over par finish at the Masters in his last event. He will now have to regroup with swing coach Sean Foley ahead of next week’s Players Championship at Sawgrass.
