Tiger Woods at British Open 2015: Saturday Leaderboard Score, Twitter Reaction

Published by Bleacher Report on Sat, 18 Jul 2015

Tiger Woods sat through a 10-hour weather delay Saturday before finally finishing his second round at the 2015 Open Championship. The suspension simply put the inevitable on hold, as the 14-time major winner missed the cut at St. Andrews.Woods ended up shooting a three-over 75 in the second round, and he played the final seven holes of his round at two over Saturday. Tiger entered the clubhouse in a tie for 147th place at seven over, missing the even-par projected cut by seven strokes.Here is a look at the top of the leaderboard with full results available on thePGA Tour website:The 39-year-old golf legend needed a fantastic second round to secure his place in the field for the third and fourth rounds. Things didn't go his way Friday, and they only got worse Saturday as he battled poor conditions.Here is a rundown of Woods' second-round scorecard, including the first through 11th holes, which he completed Friday:Tiger played the first 11 holes at one over par before play was suspended because of darkness Friday. He completed the 12th hole and made it to the green on No. 13 early Saturday before it was determined that the wind was too strong to continue.That much was obvious as playing partner Louis Oosthuizen's ball was blown all over the green, as seen in this video courtesy of SportsCenter:Tiger finally returned to the course more than 10 hours later, which led to this quip from Golf Channel's Kelly Tilghman regarding the 13th hole:That bogey started a trend as Woods went on to bogey the 14th and 15th holes as well. He stopped the bleeding on No. 16 with his second birdie of the round and first of the day, but it was far too late for him to salvage his tournament.Woods mercifully finished the round with pars on both the 17th and 18th holes.With his latest missed cut, Tiger accomplished an unwanted career first after missing the cut at the U.S. Open as well, according to Tilghman:If Woods is unable to make a miraculous recovery to win the PGA Championship, then he is staring another dubious distinction in the face as well, per Dan Jenkins ofGolf Digest:Also, according to Justin Ray of GolfChannel.com, the struggling superstar is in line to secure his worst world ranking in nearly two decades:Quite simply, Tiger is a shell of his former self, and he can't figure out a way to regain his past magic. He attempted to do so by taking some time off this season to correct his swing, but it hasn't worked.According to BBC's Dan Walker, nine-time major champion Gary Player believes he can cure what ails the former world No. 1:Former PGA Championship winner Paul Azinger, on the other hand, is saddened by the current state of Woods' game, per Coleman McDowell of Golf.com:"It's hard to watch the greatest player of his generation be a middle-of-the-pack hack. You almost want to say: Who are you and what have you done with Tiger Woods'"Despite the obvious issues, fellow golfer Billy Horschel isn't ready to write off Tiger quite yet:Woods hasn't won a major since the 2008 U.S. Open, but he is just two years removed from a five-win season in 2013, which means it wasn't long ago that he was on top of his game despite the lack of success in majors.Tiger's track record suggests that he can bounce back, but he has been hampered by injuries in recent years, and his advancing age continues to lower the likelihood of a return to form.He will have one more opportunity to turn in a strong performance on a big stage this year at the PGA Championship before regrouping for 2016. Based on how he looked at St. Andrews, though, it isn't likely that he'll end his year on a high note.Follow @MikeChiari on Twitter.
