Asked About Missing PGA Championship Cut, Tiger Woods Bites Back

Perspective, people

When life gives you lemons, you know what to do: make lemonade. Or, when you’re Tiger Woods, squeeze out the perfect answer to a reporter’s question, according to Golf Digest.

That’s what Woods did after shooting a 3-over 73 on Friday. Combined with his 2-over performance in Round One, Tiger missed the cut Friday evening for the 2019 PGA Championship by one stroke and finished a stunning 17 shots behind tournament leader Brooks Koepka.

Considering Tiger’s track record at this particular venue, along with the fanfare around him, the two-day result could be looked at as a huge letdown. But, notes Golf Digest, every story comes with different perspectives.

When it appeared that he was about to be asked if his lack of practice was a factor in his performance, Tiger nipped that line of questioning in the bud, noting: “You know, I’m the Masters champion at 43 years old, and that’s a pretty good accomplishment.” As comebacks go, a hole-in-one.
