Laird leads as Tiger shoots 82 and misses the cut

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Martin Laird had another 5-under 66 to take a two-shot lead in a Phoenix Open that will be without Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson on Super Bowl weekend.

The bigger shock was Woods - not because he missed the cut, but how. Woods made bogey on his last hole for an 82, the worst score in his two decades as a pro. Mickelson played in the afternoon and wasn't much better. He shot 76 and missed the cut by two shots.

Laird ran off three birdies in the cold rain on the back nine at TPC Scottsdale until taking his lone bogey on the last hole. He was at 10-under 132, two shots ahead of Daniel Berger, who had a 69.

Justin Thomas was another shot back after a 68.
