Tiger talks about missing the cut in his latest email. Here’s a flavor:

“Looking back on it, 142-straight cuts is a lot, but you always think anything is possible. You have to have things go your way and luck plays a big part of it to continue that long. I remember at the Buick Invitational I had to make a six-foot birdie putt on the final hole to make the cut. Then there was the up-and-down from the left bunker at the ninth hole at the 2003 Masters. I also made a pretty good comeback last year at Whistling Straits with a couple of late birdies to make the cut.

“To me, the cut streak isn’t better than winning a major championship, but it’s a great feeling to know I accomplished it. It shows determination and pride to always put yourself on the line and give everything you’ve got.

“In my mind, I’ve missed only two cuts in my pro career, the other coming at the 1997 Bell Canadian Open. In both cases, I bogeyed the last hole, which is interesting.

“I don’t care what the PGA Tour thinks, I didn’t miss the cut at the 1998 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am; I withdrew. So the streak actually began at the Disney World/Oldsmobile Classic in 1997. That’s just how I feel.”
