Tiger admits he didn't have the feel
Tiger Woods admitted that his game came up a bit short at the Greenbrier Classic, where he missed the cut.
Woods was coming off a win at the previous week's AT&T National, but struggled to keep his ball under control at The Old White TPC, a one-over-par 36-hole total not proving enough to see him through to the weekend.
Still, Woods doesn't believe there is any major cause for concern, and feels the problems he had this week will not affect him at the Open in two weeks' time.
"I didn't quite have it," Woods said. "I drove it really good today and I just did not have the feel for the distances. The ball was just going forever. I know we're at altitude, but I just couldn't get the ball hit pin high no matter what I did, and subsequently, I made some bogeys.
"I was hitting the ball so far. I know it's hot, I know we're at altitude. My sand wedge is going 142, 145; wedge is 160. These are numbers that I don't normally hit. Some of the bigger guys hit those numbers but I don't, and I was really struggling to get the ball at the right number."
Looking ahead to the Open, Woods said: "It's not going to be this warm and we're not going to be at altitude, we'll be on the beach."
