Tiger Woods has a mixed history at the PGA Championship. On one hand, he’s won four majors at the event. That was tied for the most wins at a major championship until his most recent title at the Masters.
On the other hand, he also has missed three cuts in his career, all in the last decade (2011, 2014 and 2015). Entering Friday at Bethpage Black, he is danger of missing his fourth cut after a 2-over par 72 in Round One.
He posted a trio of bogeys on the front 9, as well as a pair of double bogeys overall.
“It wasn’t as clean as I’d like to have it for sure,” he said to The New York Daily News. “I felt like I was getting back into the round. I fought my way back and I had two double bogeys in through there and was still able to get it to under par for the day. Unfortunately, I had a couple three-putts there and hit a bad chip there at eight and left myself in a bad spot. Consequently, I’m a long way back.”
Let’s take a look at his history at the PGA Championship since his first appearance in 1997.
