PGA Championship 2019: Tiger Woods highlights the notables to miss the cut at Bethpage Black
The 2019 PGA Championship will continue at Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, N.Y. this weekend. However, not every player will compete in the third and final rounds of the tournament, as roughly half the field failed to make the cut.
The most notable player to be sent home early was Tiger Woods, who finished the first two rounds at five over. Woods, who entered Friday’s second round at two over, shot a three-over 73 to fall outside the cut line, which ended up at four over par. His second round consisted of six bogeys, including four on the back nine. The last time that the 15-major champion failed to make the cut a major came at the 2018 U.S. Open, while his last missed cut at the PGA Championship came in 2015.
But Woods is not the only notable name to miss the cut. World No. 8 Bryson DeChambeau will also be packing his bags and heading home early after shooting a four-over 76 in Round 2 at Bethpage. Other notables to miss the cut at the second major of the season include world No. 11 Jon Rahm (six over), 2017 Masters champion Sergio Garcia (five over), two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson (five over), 2018 Masters champion Patrick Reed (six over), 2010 PGA Champion Martin Kaymer (five over), and 2013 PGA Champion Jason Dufner (eight over).
