ABC execs must be reaching for the Pepto-Bismol after seeing Tiger Woods stink up up the course at Turnberry Scotland at the British Open and miss the cut for only the second time in a major. Any event minus the game's best player is no-see TV. Unless 59-year-old Tom Watson (a co-leader after two rounds) stays in contention, the U.S. audience for Sunday will be small, especially given the early morning start time in the States.
Woods shot a 4-over 74 and lamented that he "kept making mistake after mistake." Woods had made the cut in 43 consecutive tournaments. He has struggled in the three majors so far this year, despite the folks on ESPN's "PTI" always taking him against the field (which seems bizarre given how unpredictable golf is; I'll always take the field). His last shot at a major this season will be at the PGA in August.
