Tiger Woods gives Scottie Scheffler arrest verdict after missing US PGA cut

Following his failure to make the cut at the 2024 US PGA Championship held at Louisville, Kentucky’s Valhalla Golf Club, Tiger Woods has delivered his assessment.

After missing the cut in a major championship for the ninth time in the previous ten years, 15-time major champion Tiger Woods expressed his optimism that things would work out with Scottie Scheffler.

After starting the second men’s major of the year at Valhalla with a one-over 72, which included three-putting the last two holes, Woods, 48, had some work ahead of him.

The hall of famer actually lost the race to make the cut almost instantly on Friday after finishing the first four holes at seven-over par.

Nevertheless, he told reporters he feels more physically fit than he did four weeks ago and that this will translate into a stronger performance at Pinehurst for the U.S. Open next month.

Regarding his performance at the PGA Championship, Woods said, “Unfortunately, I hit too many shots.”

When asked if he was optimistic about his game getting better, Woods responded, “It will [get better] in time.” I just realized that I should play more.

Regretfully, neither my schedule nor my playing career have allowed me to participate in many tournaments.

“Hopefully, during my at-home practice sessions, everything will work together and I’ll be ready for Pinehurst.”

It makes sense that Woods will now return his focus to urgent PGA Tour issues.

We still need to come to an agreement with LIV Golf’s financiers.

Woods declined to comment on whether he personally supported reaching a deal with Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund prior to the start of this competition.

Woods must also decide if he wants to take over as Team USA’s captain for the Ryder Cup.

Woods was questioned by a reporter and said, “You mentioned wanting to win again.

“You believed that you could still triumph.

“Yet you’re clearly spending a lot of attention on the PGA Tour policy board, where you’re spending a lot of time.”

Which is more significant to you than the other?

In response, Woods said, “No, playing and my duties as a player director—whether they are on the enterprise [PGA Tour Enterprises] board or the policy board—are both equally important to me.

“Each of the three has significance in a unique way.

In a variety of ways, including the fact that I play for pride and what I can accomplish here, but also that I have responsibilities and an impact off the golf course as a player director and as a player representative.

World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler was charged with assaulting a police officer and placed under arrest earlier in the day following an incident involving traffic.

When asked for an explanation, Woods stated: “Sad. All I can say is that. I’m not sure what has happened since that regrettable incident, but hopefully everything turns out okay.”

Scheffler raced back to the course from jail to play his second round.

Reporters were informed by him that he stretched in his cell and arrived at Valhalla fifty-six minutes ahead of his scheduled tee time.

With a five-under 66 on the weekend, Scheffler put himself squarely in the running.

Regarding Woods, he has participated in nine competitions following his vehicle accident in February 2021.

He missed the cut at the historic 150th Open in 2022, withdrew after three rounds of the PGA Championship, and tied for 47th at the Masters in 2022.

He battled back to finish 18th at the Hero World Challenge, tie for 45th at the Genesis Invitational—which was overshadowed by giving Justin Thomas a tampon—and make the cut at the Masters once more before withdrawing last year.

With a stomach ailment, Woods pulled out of the Genesis Invitational in February. He made the cut at Augusta National once more but came in dead last.
