Tiger Woods (picture) has missed the cut in two consecutive majors for the first time in his life. In the second round of the British Open at St. Andrews’ Old Course (par 72), Scotland, on Saturday, Woods shot 75 for a 3-over-par and tied for 147th place with 7-over 151 among 156 players. Woods missed the cut at even par by seven shots and failed to play in the third round, following a missed cut at the U.S. Open.

“I would be sorry for him (Woods) if next year`s Rio Olympics may have to do without Tiger Woods,” said IOC chief Thomas Bach on a visit to the Open Championship. Korean golfer Ahn Byeong-hoon and Yang Geon also missed the cut.

Dustin Johnson (the U.S.) maintains lead at 10-under 134. Jordan Spieth (the U.S.) who aims to win for three consecutive majors tied for the 14th (5-under). Tom Watson and Nick Faldo, two veteran golfers, missed the cut and said farewell to the British Open.

Heavy rain and strong wind have caused difficulties in progress of the competition. The British Open will finish the fourth round on Monday.
