The Greenbrier Classic, Woods and Mickleson Miss the Cut July 06 2012

Both Tiger Woods and Phil Mickleson missed the cut at The Greenbrier Classic, played on The Old White TPC course, White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. It was the first time both of them had missed a cut at the same event, as playing as professionals on the U.S PGA Tour. The only previous time both failed to make the cut in a  U.S. PGA Tour event was the 1993 HP Byron Nelson Championship, when Tiger Woods was in high school and competing as an amateur.

Webb Simpson was at the top of the leaderboard at the conclusion of play, with a tournament total of -9 under par, in the weather affected second round of The Greenbrier Classic. A lightning storm had halted play for two and a half hours, and there are still some players who have to complete their second rounds, which was suspended due to darkness. Most notably of the players having to return tomorrow to complete their rounds is Martin Flores. Martin still has two holes to complete, the par five 17th and the par three 18th, and as he is currently at -8 under par for the tournament there is a good possibilty that he could surplant Webb at the top of the board.

The leaderboard is tightly packed at  the top with five players currently tied at -8 under par, and two others at -7. To predict a winner from here would be an impossibility, but it certainly will not be Tiger Woods.

Other names not making it to the weekend are; Jim Furyk, Jhonattan Vegas and Camilo Villegas.
