2012 Greenbrier Classic: Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson Struggling To Make Cut

Jonathan Byrd and Charlie Beljan are having fine opening rounds in the 2012 Greenbrier Classic with a strong eight-under score after the first two rounds of play. They top the leaderboard of the event, but some of the more notable names are having quite a bit of trouble. In particular, Phil Mickelson is having a hard time even making the cut for the event — for a second year in a row.

Mickelson is currently at two-over for the week with a one-over score for each of the first two rounds. Tiger Woods is not much better at one-over for the week.

"I really have been (off)," Mickelson said. "I don’t know what to say about that. It hasn’t been great. The parts don’t feel that far off, but I haven’t been putting them together. It doesn’t feel bad off the tee, it doesn’t feel bad with the iron play, it doesn’t feel bad chipping or putting. But I’m making some loose drives here or there, some loose iron shots here or there, missing some short putts here or there, and just haven’t been putting it all together."

Mickelson has been in perhaps the biggest slump in his career these last seven rounds that he can’t get under par. Both Woods and Mickelson could miss the cut in this event which would remove two of the world’s top golfers from contention heading into the weekend, a very disappointing reality facing those running the Greenbrier tournament.
