LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Tiger Woods is in danger of missing the cut at a major championship for only the fourth time in his professional career.

Woods played the front nine of the PGA Championship at 4-over 39 on Friday, pushing his total score to 7 over. With the projected cut at 1 over – and little chance it would go much higher – he needed a sudden burst of birdies after the turn to have any chance.

That seemed highly unlikely.

Through his first 27 holes at Valhalla, Woods made only one birdie – a chip-in from off the green at the 16th hole Thursday.

The last time he failed to make a major cut was the 2011 PGA Championship in Atlanta. He also missed at the 2009 British Open and 2006 U.S. Open.
