LA JOLLA, United States, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 28th Jan, 2017 ) - Tiger Woods' long-awaited PGA Tour comeback headed for a premature end on Friday as the former world number one was left facing up to a missed cut at the Farmers Insurance Open. Woods had started the day at Torrey Pines Golf Course needing a low second round score to extend his participation into the weekend after a wayward four-over-par first round 76 on Thursday. But despite perfect conditions on Torrey Pines' more forgiving North Course, Woods again struggled to generate any momentum, carding a level par 72 which left him four-over after 36 holes.
With the cut line projected at level par, Woods was left revising his plans for the weekend after a disappointing outing in his first PGA Tour event since August 2015. Woods, who played in the unofficial Hero World Challenge invitational last month, is stepping up his comeback with a demanding series of tournaments as he targets April's Masters at Augusta. But the 41-year-old could only reflect on a frustrating outing at Torrey Pines, the picturesque coastal course nestling against the Pacific Ocean just outside San Diego where he was won no fewer than eight times. Teeing off on the 10th, Woods got off to a perfect start with a birdie on the opening hole to drop to three over. But a bogey on his third hole of the day stunted any hopes of a birdie spree, and he battled his way around the remainder of the front nine with six pars and few real birdie chances.
