Tiger Woods Tiger Woods on the 18th green at the 2024 PGA Championship second round Friday evening at Valhalla Golf Course in Louisville, Kentucky. May 17, 2024. The 15-time champion failed to make the cut; finishing 6 over par at 77 Friday; 72 the day before.

Tiger Woods’ latest struggles at the PGA Championship have led to many golf fans suggesting that Woods just may not be able to compete at the highest level anymore. But Woods feels differently on the matter, seemingly dedicated to working continuously on his game to get his game back in the right place.

Woods finished his first two rounds at the PGA Championship at seven-over-par, eight strokes off of the projected cut line at one-under-par.

Friday’s round for Woods was what ultimately did him in, shooting a 77, six strokes over-par which were largely due to two triple-bogeys in his first four holes on the day.

It’s obviously not the result that Woods wanted. But mentally, Woods assured fans in an interview after his round that he is dedicated to improving ahead of his next performance at a major championship.

“Just keep fighting,” said Woods via Golf Digest. “Keep the pedal on, keep fighting, keep grinding. Keep working hard to post the best score I can possibly post today. That’s all I can do. I’m gonna fight until the end.”

This kind of mentality is what made Tiger such a great player when he was in his prime. But it could be his body, not his mind, that is letting him down from performing up to his expectations.

It’s no secret that Woods has appeared to look very hampered at times during his recent rounds. At the Masters, this seemingly contributed to him completely melting down in his final two rounds, which resulted in him finishing with the worst score of any player to make the cut in that event.

Will Woods one day regain his form of the past, or at least compete again in a major championship? We will see, but there is no doubting his dedication to his craft.
