Tiger Woods has missed the cut at the PGA Tour's Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia.

He carded a one-under 69 in his second round to finish the tournament at even par and miss out on playing in the weekend by a shot.

Webb Simpson leads at nine-under.

American rival Phil Mickelson also missed the cut, along with Kiwi number one Danny Lee.

But two golfers at opposite ends of the age spectrum are still flying the New Zealand flag.

15-year-old Lydia Ko is tied for 31st after two rounds of the US women's Open in Wisconsin.

She's two-over for the tournament, seven shots off the lead.

76-year-old Sir Bob Charles is tied for third at the European Senior Tour event in Switzerland after beating his age by 10 shots.
