Sea­son run­ning out on Woods

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

GAINESVILLE, Va. — Tiger Woods is run­ning out of op­por­tu­ni­ties to sal­vage a lost sea­son. This week’s Quicken Loans Na­tional could be his sec­ond-to-last start be­fore the new PGA Tour sea­son be­gins in the fall. He’s on track to miss the FedEx Cup play­offs, and he needs a vic­tory just to be el­i­gi­ble for next week’s Bridge­stone In­vi­ta­tional, on a course where he’s won eight times. Bar­ring a dra­matic turn­around, Woods’ sea­son will con­clude at the PGA Cham­pi­onship in two weeks. Woods ac­knowl­edged Tues­day that his last two years have been for­get­table. Last year, he missed three months af­ter back surgery, and this year he took two months off to fix a balky short game. He says he doesn’t feel a huge sense of ur­gency be­cause he hasn’t played much com­pet­i­tive golf.
