BETHESDA, Md. -- Tiger Woods never felt so good after playing so badly. Taking two shots to escape a plugged lie in a bunker put him a hole. Four straight bogeys on the back nine Friday in the Quicken Loans National buried his chances of making it to the weekend. Over two rounds at Congressional, he missed 16 greens and managed to save par only three times. Woods was back -- just not for very long. Playing for the first time in more than three months because of back surgery, he had a 4-over 75 on Friday and missed the cut by four shots. It was only the 10th time in his PGA Tour career that Woods missed a 36-hole cut, and the first time he didnt sound overly distressed. "I hate to say it, but Im really encouraged by what happened this week," Woods said. "I missed the cut by four shots -- thats a lot. But the fact that what I was able to do physically, and the speed I had and the distance that I was hitting the golf ball again, I had not done that in a very long time. Felt great today. Then, as I said, I made so many little mistakes ... all the little things that I know I can fix. But as I said, thats very encouraging." And it wasnt all that surprising. Woods had played only four tournaments this year while coping with an increasingly sore back, which led him to have surgery March 31 and miss the first two majors. He had hoped to return for the British Open next month. Instead, he felt strong enough to play the Quicken Loans National, primarily because it benefits his foundation and Woods figured he needed to get in a little competition before going to Royal Liverpool. Even it if was only two rounds. "I came back four weeks earlier than we thought I could," Woods said. "I had no setbacks. I got my feel for playing tournament golf. I made a ton of simple, little mistakes -- misjudging things and missing the ball on the wrong sides and just didnt get up-and-down on little, simple shots. Those are the little things I can correct." Marc Leishman of Australia turned potential bogey into unlikely birdie when he holed out from 127 yards on the par-5 ninth hole on his way to a 5-under 66 and a four-way share of the lead going into the weekend. Oliver Goss, another Aussie who is making his second pro start, had a bogey-free 66 and joined Leishman at 6-under 136 along with Ricky Barnes (69) and Patrick Reed (68), who already has won twice this year. Woods was 13 shots behind at 7-over 149. It wasnt the largest 36-hole gap from the leaders in the previous nine times he missed the cut on the PGA Tour. It just looked that way. Woods took two shots to get out of a plugged lie in a bunker on the fifth hole and made double bogey. He three-putted for par on the next hole and never looked more sloppy than on the short par-4 eighth. He was in perfect position after hitting a big drive, 61 yards from the hole at the right angle. His pitch was too strong and left of the flag, leaving him a downhill chip from the collar. He hit that 7 feet by and missed the par putt. Even so, the damage came after consecutive bogeys around the turn. His tee shot went into a hazard on No. 11, forcing him to punch out. He hit a wild hook off the tee on the 12th, and his second shot was headed for a bunker until it was suspended in the grass on the lip of the sand. He hit a poor chip from below the green on the 13th. And from the 14th fairway, he missed the green and hit another poor chip. Four bogeys, no time to recover. "If it were anybody else, I would say that I would expect kind of a struggle. But you just never know with Tiger," Jordan Spieth said after his own brilliant display of a short game that allowed him to make the cut. "He just got a couple rounds under his belt. So hes going to be a severe threat at the British -- probably a favourite -- and after playing these couple rounds, I think hell take something from it. "Hes not that far off from being right back to where he was." Woods took encouragement from not feeling any pain in his back, and from swinging as hard as he wanted with his driver. Thats what concerned him about playing this week. Turns out it was the two shortest clubs in his bag -- the wedge and putter -- that did him in. It was surprising to see Woods go straight from the range to the tee in both rounds. Most players give themselves a few extra minutes in the chipping area. "The short game was off," Woods said. "Ive been practicing on Bermuda grass, and I grew the grass up at my house and it was Bermuda. But come out here and play rye, its totally different. And it showed. I was off. I probably shout have spent more time chipping over on the chipping green than I did. But thats the way it goes." His last act as tournament host is to present the trophy, and that could be anyone. Ten players were separated by only two shots going into the weekend, and there was only a nine-shot differential from first to last place. Former U.S. Open champion Justin Rose had 65 to get within three shots of the lead. Lucas Perez Jersey . He managed to save par, and went on to put together his best opening round of the year.

The 79th edition of the Prince of Wales for Canadian-foaled three-year-olds will be televised live on TSN on Tuesday, July 29 starting at 7pm et/4pm pt. At a distance of 1 3/16-miles, the Prince of Wales is the only race in the Canadian Triple Crown Series that is run on a traditional dirt surface. The Queens Plate, a 1 1/4-mile Poly test is the first jewel of the Triple Crown which is completed by the Breeders Stakes, a 1 1/2-mile endurance test over Woodbines E.P. Taylor Turf Course, to be held on Sunday, August 17. Trained by Josie Carroll for owner-breeder Ivan Dalos, Amis Holiday will be making his first start on the dirt. Luis Contreras retains the mount on the Harlans Holiday-Victorious Ami colt who boasts a record of 2-2-1 from seven starts including a major score in the Grade 3 Grey Stakes in October. "He always breaks sharp and settles into a good position early," said Contreras. "Well try to find our spot and hope for a clean trip." Amis Holiday, who traveled down to Fort Erie to gallop over the surface last weekend, breezed five furlongs in 1:01 over Woodbines main track on Wednesday in his final prep for the Prince of Wales. "Hes been doing everything right," said Contreras. "His fitness is excellent, hes confident and Im looking forward to the race. Well see how he handles the dirt, but he has raced behind horses on the Poly so I dont think he will mind having a bit of dirt in his face." Matador, trained by Plate winning trainer Mark Casse for John Oxley, has been installed as the 3-1 second choice. The bay son of Malibu Moon-Im Breathtaking took part in a series of U.S. Triple Crown prep races over the winter finishing fourth in the Grade 3 Sam F. Davis; fifth in the Grade 2 Tampa Bay Derby; and sixth in the Grade 1 Florida Derby. On his return to Woodbine, Matador romped a 1 1/16-miles allowance route by six lengths, setting up an even seventh-place run in the Queens Plate. Patrick Husbands, who guided Lexie Lou to victory in the Plate, will take over from Julien Leparoux aboard Matador. Coltimus Prime (12-1, Post 6), trained by Fort Erie local Justin Nixon, will garner support from the home crowd. The dark bay son of Milwaukee Brew-Certainly Special, with a lifetime record of 2-2-0 from eight starts, finished ninth in the Queens Plate. "This is where I learned the game," said Nixon over the phone from the border oval. "Its such a nice atmosphere down here. The facilities are excellent and the horses aree enjoying the experience.dddddddddddd Were happy to be here to support Fort Erie and Ontario horse racing." Coltimus Prime was forwardly placed in the Queens Plate through a swift three-quarters in 1:11.2 before fading. "We drew inside and wanted to be forward in the Plate and it might have been a little quicker than we would have liked, but thats racing," said Nixon. The dark bay colt, who can be found on Twitter @ColtimusPrime, breezed between races on Tuesday evenings card at Fort Erie with Francine Villeneuve aboard, clocked in a good :59.20. "We wanted to replicate race conditions as best we could and he moved very well over the dirt here. Were very happy with now he breezed and he came back in excellent order," said Nixon. Eurico Rosa da Silva will pilot Coltimus Prime for the first time in Tuesdays lucrative affair. "Id hate to say were going to commit to the lead at all costs," said Nixon. "We just want the race to unfold, for us to be comfortable and be in a position to win turning for home. Hes rateable. He came from last in the Blue Grass (April 12 at Keeneland) to be fifth." Lions Bay (5-1, Post 10) is the only other holdover from the Queens Plate field. Trained by Jamie Attard, the dark bay son of Sligo Bay-Lions Raw finished sixth in the Plate despite stumbling in the first few strides out of the gate bending his shoe. A two-time winner in four starts for conditioner Jamie Attard, Lions Bay will leave from post 10 in the 1 3/16-miles event. Davy Moran will ride. Newcomers to the Canadian Triple Crown experience, from the rail out, include East Side, Ascot Martin, Money Talks, Smart Spree, Lynx and Rhythm Blues. First race post time on Tuesdays nine-race card is scheduled for 4:15. The Prince of Wales will be televised on TSN from 7pm to 8pm EDT with the Prince of Wales, slated as Race 8, scheduled for 7:40 pm.
