Tiger Woods shot a career-worst round of 82 on Friday to miss the cut in his PGA Tour season-debut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
There is no indication that Woods aggravated his surgically repaired back during the round, in which he failed to break 80 for just the second time in his professional career, simply saying he had a bad day.
“We all have days like this,” Woods told ESPN.
“Unfortunately, mine was in a public forum, a public setting. We all have days like this. We take the good with the bad, and the thing is even on bad days like this, just keep fighting, because on the good days you’ve got to keep fighting, as well.”
Woods will have a chance to redeem himself during the Farmer’s Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in San Diego, CA, which begins Feb. 5.
