BETHESDA, Maryland - Tiger Woods struggled to a four-over-par 75 and missed the cut on Friday at the US PGA National, a frustrating return from a three-month layoff as he looked ahead to July's British Open.

It was only the 10th time Woods had missed the cut in a US PGA Tour event since turning professional in 1996, the last early exit coming at the 2012 Greenbrier Classic, two weeks before sharing third at the British Open.

Woods he fired a 78 for his career-worst final-round score. He was inconsistent on Friday, although he was strong at moments in all three areas.

He parred the first three holes after hitting into the rough, found the fairway at four but missed a seven-foot birdie putt.

Woods had a 60-foot eagle putt at the par-5 sixth but settled for par and left a seven-foot par putt on the edge of the cup for bogey at eight.

He hit into the trees off the tee at 11 and 12, missed the green at the par-3 13th and found greenside rough at the 14th and was unable to rescue par.
