Tiger Woods fails to make the cut at the Open

Tiger Woods at the Open

World number one golfer Tiger Woods has missed out on making it into the second half of the Open tournament for the first time in his career.

The 33-year-old American finished five over par - which means he took five more shots than expected - to get round the course at Turnberry.

It's disappointing for Woods who, before the tournament started, had been one of the favourites to win.

"No doubt I'm frustrated, it just didn't happen for me," he said.

Meanwhile, Tom Watson continued to have a great time on the green, sharing the halfway lead with fellow American Steve Marino.
