The second round of The 144th Open Championship is scheduled to resume at 5:00 p.m. local time at St. Andrews. UPDATE: The restart has been shifted to 5:30 p.m. 6:00 p.m.
That's now 12:30 p.m. ET in the U.S. and there's no guarantee that more golf will be played today. As a result of the extended delay due to wind, the R&A has confirmed that the final round will be completed on Monday for just the second time in history (1988). The entire third round will be contested on Sunday. Three-time Open champion Tiger Woods is 1-over-par through 12 holes and 5-over through 30. The current cut line is at even-par 144, so he'd need to score in a fashion he hasn't flashed in a long time just to earn a tee time in the third round. Jul 18 - 10:07 AM

Tiger Woods authored a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to conclude his second appearance (MC, 2012) at 7-under 273, currently T32 with play still in progress.

It's not a win, or a top-25 finish for that matter, but it's bogey-free, the first such occurrence for Woods since round one of the 2013 Barclays, 55 competitive rounds ago. He began the day at 4-under (T47) and seven off the pace. With the uncertain state of the 39-year-old's game, too far back to contend. On his round, Woods circled three birdies at Nos. 4, 6 and 12, found the short grass a surprising 12 (of 14) times and peppered 15 greens in regulation. At last check he was a cumulative 4.206 strokes gained: tee-to-green, ranked 27th in that category for the tournament, but -1.031 in strokes gained: putting, 53rd in the field for that stat. His three par breakers aside, he had several other realistic scoring opportunities, missing five birdie putts from inside 15 feet. Woods' next start is in two weeks at the 144th Open Championship at St. Andrews, where he's won twice.

Tiger Woods signed for a 4-under-par 34-32=66 following his opening round of The Greenbrier Classic.

You read that right. It's his lowest round on the PGA TOUR since a third-round 66 at Trump National Doral in early March of 2014. Woods split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens at The Old White TPC today. He wrangled seven birdies, including three straight to conclude the round, the latter two falling from 18'3" and 19'1" at Nos. 8 and 9, respectively. Woods also connected from 13'5" at the par-4 second. In terms of the negative, he rinsed his tee ball en route to a bogey at the par-5 17th hole, and then airmailed the green with a bunker shot at the par-4 sixth where he's eventually pencil a 6, but at last check, the 14-time major champion ranked second in strokes gained: putting at 2.983. Of course, all bets remain off for the second round, but this is the kind of golf course that rewards confident putters. If he can continue to avoid trouble, and that remains a huge if, Woods might be relevant entering the weekend. He's four shots off the clubhouse lead.
Jul 2 - 3:10 PM

At 16-over-par 80-76=156, Tiger Woods missed the cut at the 115th U.S. Open by 11 strokes.

His aggregate in the opener is his highest in 68 rounds as a professional in this championship. Overall, he split 16 (of 28) fairways and hit 21 greens but needed a ridiculous 73 putts. His scorecards featured three birdies, 16 bogeys and a triple. This is his second MC of the season, tying a career high in a single season. Other notables that failed to survive include: 146--defending champ Martin Kaymer; Charley Hoffman; Bill Haas; Cody Gribble (opened with 68) ... 147--Bubba Watson; Hunter Mahan; local resident Michael Putnam ... 148--two-time champ Retief Goosen; 2010 champ Graeme McDowell ... 149--two-time champ Lee Janzen; local favorite Ryan Moore; Danny Willett ... 151--Jamie Donaldson ... 154--Rickie Fowler ... 156--2009 champ Lucas Glover ... 157--Darren Clarke.

Tiger Woods ballooned to a 13-over-par 42-43=85 in today's third round of the Memorial and his 12-over 228 total has him in 71st place of 71 golfers that made the cut.

Woods, a five-time champion of the Memorial Tournament, began the day at 1-under having made the cut on the number with rounds of 73-70. He was in the third tee time off this morning, paired with PGA TOUR rookie Zac Blair, who shot 2-under 70. On his round, Woods found seven (of 14) fairways and just nine greens in regulation, recording an astonishing -10.171 strokes gained: tee-to-green at the time he signed his card. The 39-year-old circled a lone birdie against six bogeys, two doubles and a quadruple bogey-8 at the last to put a stamp on his career-worse round, three worse than his prior-worst total of 82, which he shot at the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Tiger Woods is back in action at this week's Memorial Tournament and enters the week at No. 172 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Woods did not play the Memorial last year and finished T65 in 2013 on rounds of 71-74-79-72 (8-over-par). Overall, he's 14-for-14 at Muirfield Village GC with eight top 10s, last being his win in 2012. Woods also won the 2009 edition and three straight from 1999-2001. The 39-year-old is making just his fifth start in 2015, opening with a missed cut at the Phoenix Open followed by a mid-tournament, first-round withdrawal (deactivated glutes) at the Farmers Insurance Open, a tournament that he'd won seven times. The 14-time major champion's season-best is T17 at the Masters, his first top-20 finish on TOUR since the BMW Championship in September, 2013.

In a press release at TigerWoods.com, the 14-time PGA TOUR winner announced planned commitments to five tournaments after next week's PLAYERS.

First, Woods will be returning to TPC Sawgrass on May 7 for the first time since his title there in 2013. Four weeks later, he'll tee it up at Muirfield Village for the Memorial (June 4-7). Starts at the U.S. Open (June 18-21), The Greenbrier Classic (July 2-5), The Open Championship (July 16-19) and the Quicken Loans National (July 30-Aug. 2) will ensue. Woods always makes news when he commits or opts out of an expected start, but it's probably a smart compromise to issue just one statement on a schedule given that he's currently 116th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Tiger Woods was his old self in today's third round of the 79th Masters, spinning a 4-under-par 32-36=68 to post 6-under 210 and join Rory McIlroy as clubhouse leaders through 54 holes.

Woods walked off with bogey at the par-4 18th, but he dropped six birdies prior to it. He penciled in 4s on all four par 5s. The birdie at 13 elicited a fist pump from the 14-time major champion. He yanked his drive into the trees, but got a great break. From there, he laid up to about 175 yards and eventually poured in a mid-range look. Woods also nearly holed his tee ball at the par-3 fourth for the gimme. This is his lowest score at Augusta National since a final-round 67 in 2011. It comes on the heels of Friday's 69. The last time he connected sub-70s in the same week of the tournament was in 2005 when he shot 66-65 in the middle rounds en route to what remains the most recent of four titles here. At the time he signed today's card, Woods was positioned nine strokes off the lead of Jordan Spieth, who has seven holes to complete.

Tiger Woods spun a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his second round of the Masters to post 2-under 142 at the midpoint.

He's 12 strokes back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Jordan Spieth, so it's not realistic for Woods to pick up his 15th title in a major, but that you can't rule it out entering the weekend speaks to just how well he's been striking it this week. Woods hit 14 greens in regulation today and covered a lone bogey-4 at No. 6 with birdies at 1, 7, 8 and 11. Only the eighth hole is a par 5, so he could have scored even lower. Nevertheless, it's his first round in the 60s in competition at Augusta National since he polished off a T4 in 2011 with 67.
Apr 10 - 3:46 PM

Tiger Woods signed for a 1-over-par 37-36=73 following his opening round of the 79th Masters.

Back inside the ropes since withdrawing during the Farmers with a sore back, the four-time champ at Augusta National hit 11 greens in regulation and birdied three of the four par 5s, but that was all he could find today. Woods also squared four bogeys en route to matching his highest lid-lifter since he opened his last title (in 2005) with 74. He's nine swings back of overnight leader Jordan Spieth.
Apr 9 - 7:11 PM

Tiger Woods announced today on his website that he's committed to next week's Masters.

The statement in its entirety: "I'm playing in the Masters," Tiger said Friday afternoon. "It's obviously very important to me, and I want to be there. I've worked a lot on my game and I'm looking forward to competing. I'm excited to get to Augusta and I appreciate everyone's support." If he's still having issues with his greenside touch, then it could be a long couple of days pre-cut.
Apr 3 - 3:22 PM

In a statement at TigerWoods.com today, the 14-time major champion informed readers that he will not be committing to next week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Woods is an eight-time winner at Bay Hill, but this will be the second consecutive edition in which he won't be pegging it. Instead, he's focusing on returning at the season's first major. He's been out since withdrawing from the Farmers Insurance Open during his opening round when his glutes weren't activating (his words). That was on Feb. 5. This is today's statement in its entirety: "I spoke to Arnold today and told him that I will not play in his tournament this year. I'm sorry I won't be in Orlando next week, but I know it will be a really successful event. I've put in a lot of time and work on my game and I'm making strides, but like I've said, I won't return to the PGA TOUR until my game is tournament ready and I can compete at the highest level. I hope to be ready for the Masters, and I will continue to work hard preparing for Augusta. I want to thank everyone again for their support."

Tiger Woods will not compete in next week's Honda Classic, according to Brian Biggane at PalmBeachPost.com.

This isn't a surprise, but anywhere Woods commits or doesn't commit when probable makes headlines. As a result, he will not qualify for the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship the week after. His timetable for a return to competition remains undetermined.
Feb 19 - 5:04 PM

TigerWoods.com published a short statement by Woods to address last week's withdrawal and his long-term plans.

We already know that Woods is a virtual non-play in most fantasy formats, so consider this a bone thrown at the casual fan. You can read the entirety of his statement at the link below, but here are the most relevant excerpts: "The last two weeks have been very disappointing to me, especially Torrey, because I never want to withdraw. Unfortunately, lately injuries have made that happen too often. This latest injury is not related to my previous surgery. I am having daily physical therapy and I am feeling better every day. ... My play, and scores, are not acceptable for tournament golf. Like I've said, I enter a tournament to compete at the highest level, and when I think I'm ready, I'll be back. ... I'd like to play The Honda Classic -- it's a tournament in my hometown and it's important to me -- but I won't be there unless my game is tournament-ready. That's not fair to anyone. I do, however, expect to be playing again very soon."
Feb 11 - 7:35 PM

In an impromptu meeting with the media beside his vehicle in the parking lot at Torrey Pines, Tiger Woods specified why he withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open on his 12th hole.

"It’s just my glutes are shutting off," Woods said. "They don’t activate, hence it goes into my lower back. I tried to activate my glutes the best I could, but they never stayed activated. ... It’s frustrating that it started shutting down like that. I was ready to go. I had a good warmup session the first time around, and I stood out here and got cold and it started deactivating again." On the surface, it doesn't seem to be the kind of problem that should lead another long-term layoff, but it's further proof that Woods' body has reached the point that it simply won't recover as quickly as he expects.
