JOHNS CREEK, Ga. (AP) — Tiger Woods’ stunning downfall has gotten worse: He missed the cut at the PGA Championship.

The player who once dominated golf headed home Friday after shooting a 10-over 150 at Atlanta Athletic Club.

With no one seizing control of the tournament, this became another day to focus on Woods’ collapse, his career in tatters because of personal failings and a broken game.

Consecutive double-bogeys at the 11th and 12th holes ruined any hopes he had of making it to the weekend. He finished with a 3-over 73 on the heels of an opening-round 77.

Woods finished in appropriate fashion, putting his tee shot in the bunker, his second shot in the water and finishing with a bogey. He was projected to miss the cut by a staggering six shots.
