TIGER WOODS IN DANGER OF MISSING BRITISH OPEN CUT

Tiger Woods opened the British Open today with a 4 over par, 76.  The Open as it is referred to today is the 3rd leg of what is considered golf's four major tournaments.  I realize that one round does not necessarily determine if a player will make the 36 hole cut, but there are a couple of things that are not in Woods' favor as he prepares for tomorrow's second round.  Woods played early in round one and the conditions were not nearly as bad as what players are experiencing in afternoon rounds.  His 76 does not stand up against players who also played early and recorded scores like, Dustin Johnson, 65 or Jordan Spieth , 67 as a couple of examples.  Tomorrow the conditions are to be not the best as rain and winds are predicted, so things are not in Tiger's favor to be playing later.  Coming off his 4 rounds of being under par at the Greenbrier Classic, Woods once again indicated that his game was definitely coming around, but a score of 76 today does not support that.  It is possible that Tiger can make some sort of a comeback tomorrow and make the cut, but one thing for sure, another chance to win a major tournament will pass him by.

It's way to difficult to watch him knowing that every thing comes down to his 1st round ----if he plays good in the 1st he's got a chance, if he plays bad, he has no answer for it and he will be out. Woods can not come back from being down anymore
