Tiger Woods has admitted he will need help to get into contention for a 15th major title after making the halfway cut with just a shot to spare.
Woods struggled to a second round of 75 in testing conditions at Augusta National to slip to four over par, 13 shots behind fellow American Patrick Reed.
‘I felt like I hit it off well off the tee,’ Woods said after a round containing two birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey on the fifth.
‘I hit my irons awful. I didn’t control my distance, my shape, spins. I left myself in bad spots and hit a lot of beautiful putts but didn’t make anything.
‘I’m going to need a special weekend with two rounds in the mid-60s.
I would have done it the first two days if I would have quit playing after 16! Let’s see if we can get it in 18 holes tomorrow.
‘I’m so far back I’m going to need a lot of help. I’m not in control of my own destiny.
But six months ago I didn’t know if I was going to be able to play golf again, so I’m just so grateful of the opportunity to play at the top level.’
