BETHESDA, Md. (AP) - Quotes from Tiger Woods after each of the 10 times he has missed the cut on the PGA Tour:

“It had to happen. I can’t play my entire career without missing a cut.” - 1997 Canadian Open, where Woods missed the cut by one shot at Royal Montreal. It was his 26th start as a pro.

___

“I just had a tough day. Things I don’t normally do, I did today.” - 2005 Byron Nelson Championship, where Woods missed the cut by one shot and ended his PGA Tour record of 142 consecutive cuts made over seven years.

___

“I played terrible this week. I hit it all over the map - irons, woods, everything. I had a two-way miss. Granted, these fairways are about 300 yards wide, but when you’re missing it both ways, you can’t aim it.” - 2005 Funai Classic at Disney, where he missed the cut by three shots.

___

“I don’t care if you had what transpired in my life of recent or not. Poor execution is never going to feel very good.” - 2006 U.S. Open at Winged Foot. It was his first tournament since the death of his father. Woods missed the cut for the first time in a major, by three shots.

___

“It was just problem after problem. I kept compounding my problems out there.” - 2009 British Open at Turnberry. He missed the cut by one shot.

___

“It is what it is. Whatever it was, it wasn’t good enough.” - 2010 Quail Hollow Championship, his second tournament since returning from the crisis in his personal life. He had his highest 36-hole score (153) and missed the cut by eight shots, his most ever.

___

“I think it’s a step back in the sense that I didn’t make the cut and I’m not contending in the tournament. But it’s a giant leap forward in the fact that I played two straight weeks healthy.” - 2011 PGA Championship, his second tournament since returning from a summer off to let his leg injuries heal. He missed the cut by six shots.
