Louisville: Tiger Woods battled through back pain and struggled to fire a three-over-par 74 Friday at the PGA Championship, missing the cut and leaving his future competitive plans uncertain.
The 14-time major champion, chasing the record 18 majors won by Jack Nicklaus, refused to listen to his injury-wracked body as the soreness he thought behind him returned on the practice range.
"It was sore. It went out on me on the range. Just had to play through it," Woods said. "It was telling me on the range probably wasn't a good idea, but I'm not exactly a non-stubborn person."
