Tiger Woods struggles in second round at Hoylake

Leading golf player, Tiger Woods appeared to be struggling to make the cut in the second round at the ongoing championship at Hoylake.

He failed to make a birdie until No. 18 and he was seen mumbling something to himself. It is unlikely that the Woods will win another championship at this year's British Open.

The golfer required a birdie at the final hole just to make the cut. He walked off the 18th with 5-over-par 77, which is his worst Open round since 2002. He continued to struggle and was 14 shots behind the leader, Rory Mcllroy.
