TULSA, Okla. – The next two days will see an entertaining weekend close at the 2022 PGA Championship, but the bite of the Southern Hills coupled with the swirling Oklahoma winds meant some of the sport’s biggest names will not be in contention for the Wanamaker Trophy this weekend. Scottie Scheffler and Dustin Johnson were among the biggest names to miss the 4-over-cut line that took hold Friday night.
Scheffler, the No. 1 golfer in the world, couldn’t salvage a slow start to his week after a 71 in the opening round with a 75 in the afternoon. He is the second consecutive world No. 1 golfer to miss the PGA championship, along with Dustin Johnson, who did so at Kiawah Island last year. Johnson fired back-to-back 73s this year to stay two shots short of the cut.
Overall, only four of the top 25 golfers in the world – Scheffler, Johnson, Patrick Cantlay and Daniel Berger – missed the weekend cut. However, two of the top 5 were in this group, with Scheffler and Cantlay showing disappointing performances.
Most notable among those who made the cut this week is Tiger Woods, who landed a shot short of the line with 3 over 36 holes. Woods, who was playing only his second event since a serious car accident that nearly lost his leg, followed a 74 in Round 1 with a 69 in Round 2. When he entered the clubhouse, the 69 was the 11th-best round of the tournament Day.
Here’s a rundown of the other big names who won’t be there this weekend, along with their respective results.
