FARMINGDALE, N.Y., May 17 (Reuters) - Tiger Woods missed the cut at the PGA Championship after shooting a three-over-par 73 in the second round at Bethpage Black on Friday.

A month after stunning the sports world by winning the Masters, Woods crashed back to earth in his first tournament appearance since claiming his 15th major, recording a five-over 145 total at Bethpage Black.

Even the support of a boisterous Long Island gallery could not lift Woods, who putted poorly in the first round and drove the ball badly in the second.

He perhaps paid the price for not playing a tournament between the Masters and PGA, and for only getting in nine holes at Bethpage in practice this week.

Tiger Woods misses cut at PGA Championship . “You know, I’m the Masters champion at 43 years old, and that’s a pretty good accomplishment,” Woods said. In some ways, his 5-over 145 and lack of juice from the get-go just further illustrated how special the 2019 Masters was and always will be.

The 43-year-old had planned to play a further nine holes on Wednesday, but did not do so after feeling under the weather.

"I've enjoyed being the Masters champion again and the PGA was a quick turnaround," Woods said after signing for a total 17 strokes more than leader Brooks Koepka.

"Unfortunately I just didn't play well, didn't do all the little things I needed to do correctly to post good scores and put myself in position to shoot good scores."

It is the third time in his past four appearances at the PGA Championship that Woods has bowed out early, though he was hampered by a bad injury when he did so in 2014 and 2015.

He did not play the following two years, before finishing second to Koepka last year.

Woods' next appearance is likely to be the Jack Nicklaus-hosted Memorial tournament in two weeks, before his next major start at the June 13-16 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, where he won by 15 strokes in 2000. (Reporting by Andrew Both Editing by Toby Davis)

Tiger Woods isn't a fan of John Daly's plan to ride in a cart

Tiger Woods isn't a fan of John Daly's plan to ride in a cart Asked a question about the PGA Championship allowing John Daly to ride in a cart for this weekend’s event, Tiger Woods let us draw our own conclusions. But there’s no doubt about where he — pardon the pun — stands. “I walked with a broken leg, so ... ” Woods said on Tuesday to laughs at his pre-tournament news conference at Bethpage Black on Long Island. Woods’ response was only seven words long and made reference to one of his most famous major victories — the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines that he won in an 18-hole playoff over Rocco Mediate.

Tiger misses another fairway, which again makes things difficult for him. He makes par at No. 16, but at this stage, he needs birdies not pars. It didn't happen. He came in with such hopes and big momentum off the Masters win, but his PGA Championship is done after just two rounds.

Tiger Woods missed the cut at the PGA Championship after completing his second round Saturday morning, marking the first time in his career that he missed four cuts in a single season. Tiger misses PGA cut , may be done for season.

Opinion: Brooks Koepka's competitors couldn't put a dent in his lead on moving day at PGA.
For those players chasing Brooks Koepka, who is just 18 holes away from winning his fourth major in his last eight attempts, it was a wasted day. Adam Scott, we’re talking about you. Scott started the day in the second-to-last group at five-under par after firing a 64 Friday. He wasn’t going to do that again, but if he had, he would be just one stroke off the lead. Instead, Scott shot a two-over 72, and fell even further behind Koepka, who fired an even-par 70 Saturday. And Jordan Spieth, we’re talking about you, too.
