Tiger Woods has decided to take the positives from his worst ever result in a major tournament.
The 14-time major winner followed up his opening day 77 with a second-round 73 to go ten-over par and miss the cut by six strokes.
"Now I'll have nothing to do but work on my game," said Woods. "That's going to be good.
"[Coach] Sean [Foley] and I haven't had the opportunity to really sit down and do a lot of work, so this will be our time.
"I think this is a step back in the sense that I didn't make the cut and I'm not contending in the tournament, but it's a giant leap forward in the fact that I played two straight weeks healthy."
The next confirmed event for the 35-year-old is the Australian Open on Thursday, November 10.
