Ace golfer Tiger Woods,who missed the cut last week at the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow,is in danger of missing a second consecutive cut for the first time in his career.

Woods will need to go reasonably low after opening the Players Championship with a 2-over par 74 on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass on Thursday.

The 14 time champion has been strained to withdraw from this tournament with injuries the last two years and have not had a good record in the Players outside of his victory in 2001.

“It wasn’t certainly the most positive start. Any kind of momentum that I would build,I would shoot myself in the foot on the very next hole. Just one of those days. I didn’t get a lot out of that round. It should have been probably 1 or 2 under par,” The NY Daily News quoted Woods,as saying.

Woods couldn’t capitalize to take advantage of the early morning conditions before the winds hit,as he opened with a bogey on the 10th hole and made the turn in 2-over.

“You look,some of the guys were 5 under at the turn. They were hammering this golf course. The wind popped up,and not a lot of guys did a lot after that. But it’s just one of those things where you’ve got to take advantage of it while you can,” Woods said.

“The greens were soft in the morning and now they”re starting to firm up. The rough turns in from where you can”t really get to the green to all of a sudden you can catch a flier pretty easily,” he added.
