Tiger Woods’ second round at the Genesis Invitational didn’t go according to plan, as he failed to make the cut line. After a solid start with a 69 in the first round, Woods struggled to make up for his bogeys on the back nine on Friday, ultimately finishing with a 3-over 74 for the round.

Woods, who is hosting the tournament as well, was hoping to make a comeback after a long absence from competitive events due to injuries sustained in a car accident last year. He was critical of his putting performance, lamenting missed opportunities that could have given him a much better score.

Starting on the back nine on Friday, Woods suffered consecutive bogeys on the 12th and 13th holes, but recovered with a beautiful shot on the 14th that gave him a birdie. Despite his efforts, he wasn’t able to get his score low enough to make the cut, leaving him out of contention for the weekend.

In the end, the projected cut line of even par proved to be too much for Woods, who finished the tournament at 3-over 145. Despite the disappointing result, Woods remains one of the greatest golfers of all time and will no doubt continue to draw crowds and inspire fans around the world.
