After Thursday’s opening round of the Open, Tiger Woods’ time off for practice and improvement in his golf game did not show on the course.

Playing in his first tournament in seven weeks, Woods went 13 holes between his two birdies at the Open and had a 2-over-par 73 which put him in danger of missing consecutive cuts for the first time in his career.

The last time Woods missed consecutive cuts on the PGA Tour was 17 years ago in 1994, when he was an 18-year-old amateur. On the PGA Tour, he has missed the 36-hole cut only seven times in his career.

Woods’ next tournament after the is the President’s Cup which most people believe was a wasted captain’s pick by Fred Couples.

It’s hard to believe, but Tiger Woods has dropped out of the top 50 in the world golf rankings for the first time in almost 15 years.

Woods, who hasn’t won a tournament in almost two years, took the drop when Louis Oosthuizen finished in a three-way tie for fifth in the Dunhill Links Championship.

The 35-year-old Woods has been out of action since he missed the cut at the PGA Championship. He returns to the competition this week at the Open, which he barely qualified for at #48 a few weeks ago.

Woods has been out of golf for much of the summer, missing two majors. He has played only eight PGA Tour events this season due to injuries to his left knee and Achilles tendon.

Woods was out of competition for four months, from the Masters in April to the Bridgestone Invitational in August, making sure his injuries were healed.

Woods will get his game together competing in the Open which will be held October 6-9 at CordeValle Golf Club, which his located about 45 minutes south of Stanford University, where he attended college.

Wisconsin native Steve Stricker is the man to catch on Sunday at the Memorial Tournament.

He has had a fantastic three rounds shooting a 68, 67 and 68 for a 12-under-par 204 and a three shot lead over his pal on the TOUR, Jonathan Byrd.

The 44-year-old Stricker, the world’s #8 golfer, Has competed in 11 Memorial Tournaments, and his best finish was a 13th in 1996.

To start his third round, Stricker recorded an eagle-2 on the 442-yard second hole with a 53 degree SW from 116 yards out. He followed three holes later with an eagle-3 on the 529-yard fifth hole. The last eagle on number-2 was by Chris Perry in 2001.

Stricker is the 13th player since 1983 to record eagles on a par-3, par-4 and par-5 in the same week (in stroke play events on TOUR). It is the first time in Memorial Tournament history. Rocco Mediate was the last to accomplish the feat at the 2010 Open.

In Stricker’s first 592 holes this season he had two eagles. He has three in his last 20 holes.

Stricker is the only player in the field to post his opening three rounds in the 60′s. The last player to record four rounds in the 60′s at the Memorial was Bart Bryant on his way to the win in 2005 (69-69-66-68). Four rounds in the 60′s has only been accomplished eight times in Memorial Tournament history, with Fred Couples (1988 and 2004) the only player to do it twice. the others include Hal Sutton (1986), Paul Azinger (1993), Tom Lehman (1994), Steve Elkington (1995) and Tiger Woods (2001). Only Elkington and Couples, in 2004, did not win the tournament.

Stricker currently lives in Madison, Wisconsin, home of the Badgers, but he is a University of Illinois alumnus.

He’s been on TOUR since 1990 and has 9 wins in the books.

He has won the PGA Tour’s comeback player of the year twice, in 2006 and 2007.
