Triple champion Tiger Woods said that he can no longer be consistent after missing the cut in The Open, and added that he would take a short break.

The 15-fold big winner finished sixth and he has now missed several cuts with majors in the same season for only the second time.

"As an older athlete you will not be as consistent as when you were 23," said 43-year-old

Woods, who has had back operations, complained of pain on Thursday.

He struggled to 78 over 78 and said he would be treated after the round. The American, who won the Masters in April, improved by a 70 on Friday, although he closed the round with back-to-back bogeys.

The American, who also missed the cut in the American PGA Championship, added: "I'm going to have my hot weeks, I'll be there in a fight with a chance to win, and I'll win tournaments.

"But there are times when I'm just not there and that was not the case 20 years ago. I had a different body and I could be a little more consistent.

"I love the atmosphere and I love the stress of playing in a big one. Unfortunately I only have a chance to win one of them and was able to do it but at the the other three I did not do well. "

Woods will skip the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational in Memphis to rest before the FedEx plays

" I just want some free time to get rid of it ", he added.

"I had a long trip to Thailand and then tried to prepare myself for this event. It was a lot of traveling, spending a lot of time in the air, traveling around a lot and different hotels. Just want to go home."

& # 39; That is why you are more or less ready at 43 hours & # 39;

Tiger Woods & # 39; body is fragile and fragile and will work for a few weeks, as it did so well with the Masters, but it will in particular let him down in circumstances such as these here.

Actually, the fact that he is as frank as he is is a shift because there was an element of denial during the previous problems prior to his back fusion operation. We could see he was having a hard time, but he told us that the aura was still there and he could still win titles.

Woods has turned this into a sport for athletes and athletes finished other sports at the end of the 1930s. The Woods model brought the game to the gym and training as an athlete changed the game of golf. It is a power game and demands the body. It is more power than deception and therefore you are more or less ready at 43 hours.
