La Jolla, CA, United States (4E Sports) - Tiger Woods' comeback from a 17-month layoff due to back problems lasted just two rounds after he missed the halfway cut at the Farmers Insurance Open Friday.
The former world No. 1 fired an even-par 72 on the Torrey Pines North Course to finish with a two-round total of 148, four shots over the cut.
"It is frustrating not being able to have a chance at winning the tournament. I didn't make the cut," said Woods, who won eight professional titles at Torrey Pines, including the 2008 US Open.
This marked the 16th time that Woods missed the cut in his PGA Tour career. Woods' playing partners, Jason Day and Dustin Johnson, also packed their bags after missing the cut.
Justin Rose fired a 71 in the second round to keep a one-shot lead over defending champion Brandt Snedeker and Adam Hadwin , who fired 69 and 71, respectively.
Ollie Schniederjans and Keegan Bradley both fired 69s to finish two shots behind.
