THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Tiger Woods missed the cut at the U.S. Open and hasn’t played since Bryson DeChambeau completed his manhandling of Winged Foot. Until Tuesday at the Zozo Championship he’d sat quietly on the sidelines as the game plummeted back into a debate about distance and skill.

“Distance has always been an advantage,” said Woods, which was not surprising given his relative length for the majority of his career. “Now that we have the tools, that being the launch monitor, the fitting of the golf clubs, the adjustability. I think all that plays into the fact that you’re able to maximize the capabilities of a driver. There’s no reason why you can’t pick up more yardage and guys have done that.”
