Keeping Score

Collin Morikawa comes up short of Tiger Woods’ record

Morikawa fails to qualify for the weekend at the Travelers Championship, falling 3 short of Woods’ mark for consecutive cuts made to start a PGA Tour career

22: Number of consecutive cuts made on the PGA Tour by American Collin Morikawa, whose streak ended Friday after his 72-71–143 score fell seven strokes short of qualifying for the weekend at the Travelers Championship. Morikawa, 23, started his PGA Tour career in 2019 with the successful run of weekends, including a victory at the 2019 Barracuda Championship and a playoff loss three weeks ago at the Charles Schwab Challenge. Only Tiger Woods, with 25 consecutive weekends in 1996-97 – including six victories – started a PGA Tour career with a longer streak of consecutive cuts made. “It was bound to happen at some point,” Morikawa said Friday after his round. “Coming into this week, everything felt good, and just couldn't get the ball in the hole. That's the name of the game, right?” Morikawa will not play this week at the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club before he said he will play in consecutive weeks at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio.
