TURNBERRY, Scotland (AP) - Tiger Woods has missed the cut in a major for only the second time in his professional career.

Woods made two double bogeys on the way to a 4-over 74 Friday and won't be playing the weekend at the British Open, missing the cut by one stroke.

That's happened only one other time since he turned pro - at the 2006 U.S. Open shortly after the death of his beloved father, Earl.

Woods tried to rally, making birdies on two of the last three holes, but a chip from the back of the green at no. 18 came up short and he settled for par.

The top 70, plus ties, make it to the final two rounds. Woods was at 5-over 145, one over the cut line.

The British Open doesn't have a 10-shot rule, which allows anyone within that margin of the lead to keep going.
