Will Tiger Woods make the cut at the US Open?

Right now he's...+7 after 8 holes...

The cut is at +6, but it could move up. C'MON TIGER!

Double bogey on his 10th hole. Unless a miracle happens, the cut is out of reach.

Obviously depends on how the afternoon guys shoot. Weather conditions seem better than yesterday and a couple of the holes were made shorter.

iirc, earlier they were saying cut line around 10 but think it comes down to about 8 when play is done.

Projected cut is at +8. Tiger is at +10.

It would be heartbreaking if it moved to +9 lol.

Put a fork in tiger. No more majors. One is an outside possibility, but I seriously doubt it.

Speith's temper is his Achilles heel. He just doesn't seem to be mature enough to maintain what he had going 2 yrs ago. Wouldn't surprise me to see him win only one or two more, tho I hope I'm wrong about that.

Not a fan of Speith. He plays soooooo slow and can't seem to order breakfast without his caddie there. Was glad he missed the cut.

Speith is hard to watch, agreed. In addition to being slow, his tantrums are a turn off. Even tho he's a Longhorn I find myself pulling for him to tank each week. If he matures I'll root for him again but until then....

Tiger simply cannot play with these guys. They look like he did when he was young. He is physically overmatched, period.
Koepka and Johnson look like Adonis out there.
Tiger won't win another tournament, much less a major.
It's over, and it has been for a long while.

Funny, that sounds like what I used to say about Andre Agassi, and he finally matured to win 8 Grand Slams in tennis. And the competition wasn't exactly light during his career.

There is zero evidence that Tiger is over-matched physically. His swing speed is as high as he has ever had. There are many ways to lose a golf tournament and Tiger has tried to use quite a few of the ways during his comeback.

The results are more than enough evidence for me. Swing speed schwing speed....means nothing to me. Some still believe he's capable of regaining his old form.
I'm not one of them.

Tiger did fine on the physical part last week, driving similar distances as Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas. It's the approach shots and touch around the green where his game is failing him.

You said it was physical. There are plenty of reasons for not shooting low scores but physical isn't one of them for Tiger. Despite his awful performance this year he is in the top 20 for scoring and driving distance. He is 3rd in approach shots into the green. Not Tigeresque but certainly not the performance of some broken down wantabe-good-again golfer. He is no longer one of the elites but he is still a top tier golfer.

I don't believe anybody thinks that Tiger will regain his old form where he won 25%+ of his starts. But I sure wouldn't bet against him winning another tournament.
