Posted January 18, 2013 on AP on Fox
Tiger Woods has missed the cut at the Abu Dhabi Championship after being penalized two shots for wrongly thinking he had a free drop after his ball became entangled in weeds. Woods thought he had just made the cut by finishing his second round at 1-over 73. But he was advised by the European Tour chief referee of the penalty, giving him a 75 and 3-over total of 147. The cut for the top 65 plus ties is projected at 2 over. Also missing the cut was Rory McIlroy, who struggled for a second day with his new Nike clubs and posted a 6-over total of 150. Even a switch to his old putter in the round didn't help McIlroy.
