The Open Championship will be Tiger Woods’ last event of the season – Golf News

Tiger Woods will make next month’s Open Championship at Royal Troon his final event of the season after missing the US Open.

Woods added a second-round 73 to his opening 74 at Pinehurst to finish seven under par and miss his second straight major cut.

The 48-year-old admitted on Thursday that he was caught between training to regain strength and worrying about re-injury which would keep him out of action.

Asked if he could try to play other events, Woods said: “I’ve only got one more tournament this season.

“I don’t think that even if I win the Open I will be there [FedEx Cup] games to play. It’s just one event and I’ll come back whenever I come back.”

The 15-time champion was also asked if this was his last US Open appearance after needing a special exemption from the USGA to compete at Pinehurst.

“Well, it’s one of those things where to win a golf tournament, you have to make the cut,” Woods said.

“I can’t win this tournament where I am, so it really worries me. I thought I played well enough to be in contention. It didn’t work out.

“As for my last Open Championship or US Open Championship, I don’t know what that is. It may or may not happen. “

After closing his first 14 holes in two pars, Woods thought he had birdied 15 to get back to the five-over cut, but saw his ball go out as he started to walk toward the hole.

“Yes, 15 are injured,” he added. “That was a nice, sweet seven iron and a nice putt.

“When I do that it changes the momentum and I look good and instead I’m on the wrong side of the cut line and I have to do something good on the last three holes.

“I finally hit a nice one out of trouble on 16 and I thought I hit my bunker shot on 17.”
