Tiger Woods: Biography and timeline through the 2019 British Open

By

Tiger Woods missed the cut at the 2019 British Open.

Woods remains stuck on 15 major championships until the Masters next April. The missed cut at Royal Portush marks the second time in the past three majors Woods failed to reach the weekend. He was gone after 36 holes at the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in May at Farmingdale, N.Y.

Before his victory at Augusta National in April, Woods had last won the Masters in 2005 and won a major championship with the 2008 U.S. Open.

Woods curtailed his PGA Tour schedule this season. He played in 18 PGA Tour events – plus the Ryder Cup, Hero World Challenge and his infamous “Match” with Phil Mickelson. – during the 2017-18 season.

Since his victory at the Masters 96 days ago, he has only played 12 rounds of competitive golf. Woods, 43, has long said his focus remains the four major championships.

It’s expected he will finish with 13 PGA Tour events this season – plus the Hero – if he’s able to run the full three-rounds of the FedEx Cup playoffs. He will captain the U.S. Presidents Cup team at Royal Melbourne in Australia in December and hopes to make the team as a player. He could also choose himself with one of four captain’s picks.
