So much for Tiger Woods wanting the attention to return to his golf.
In a shocking meltdown Friday at the Quail Hollow Championship, Woods matched the worst nine-hole score of his PGA Tour career and wound up with a 7-over 79 to miss a cut for only the sixth time in his 14-year career.
He had three-putt bogeys on consecutive holes. He hit a flop shot that ran over the green and into the water. And he bottomed out on the 15th green with a four-putt double bogey from just over 30 feet.
"It is what it is," Woods said when asked if rust or mechanics were the culprit. "Whatever it was, it wasn't good enough."
LPGA: Michelle Wie shot a 5-under 68 to take the second-round lead in the Tres Marias Championship at Morelia, Mexico, at 12 under.
Wie, who won her lone LPGA Tour title 5 1/2 months ago in the Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Guadalajara, was a stroke ahead of Seminole's Brittany Lincicome (67) and first-round leader Ai Miyazato (72).
Ochoa, who is retiring after this tournament, shot a 73 on Friday, leaving her five strokes behind Wie.
CHAMPIONS: Bob Tway and Leonard Thompson shot 5-under 67s to share the first-round lead in the inaugural Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic at Saucier, Miss.
