Question: How Many Missed Cuts Does Tiger Woods Have on the PGA Tour?

Answer: Since turning pro in late 1996, Tiger Woods has missed the 36-hole cut in nine PGA Tour events. Those nine tournaments, and Woods' scores in each, are:

• 1997 Bell Canadian Open, 70-76--146 (+6)
• 2005 EDS Byron Nelson Championship, 69-72--141 (+1)
• 2005 Funai Classic, 68-73--141 (-3)
• 2006 U.S. Open, 76-76--152 (+12)
• 2009 British Open, 71-74--145 (+5)
• 2010 Quail Hollow Championship, 74-79--153 (+9)
• 2011 PGA Championship, 77-73--150 (+10)
• 2012 Wells Fargo Championship, 71-73--144 (E)
• 2012 Greenbrier Classic, 71-69--140 (E)

Between his first missed cut in 1997 and his second in 2005, Woods set a PGA Tour record for most consecutive tournaments without missing a cut (142).

The Wells Fargo Championship is the only tournament in which has missed the cut twice (2012 plus 2010 when it was called the Quail Hollow Championship).

Missed Secondary Cut
Woods has also missed the secondary cut, after 54 holes, once:

• 2014 Farmers Insurance Open, 72-71-79--222 (+6)

The secondary cut is also known as "Rule 78" (see PGA Tour cut rule for an explanation of 'Rule 78')
