WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. - One week after he won for the third time this season, Tiger Woods gets a rare weekend off.

Woods missed the cut in the Greenbrier Classic by a stroke Friday, following an opening 71 with a 69 to finish at even par. He missed a cut for only the ninth time in his PGA Tour career, and for the third time in a tournament following a victory.

Phil Mickelson also failed to advance to weekend play, the first time Woods and Mickelson have missed the cut in the same tournament as professionals.

Mickelson shot his second straight 71.

U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson topped the leaderboard at 9 under when play was suspended because of darkness in the round that was delayed because of rain. Simpson made a 6-foot birdie putt on the par-3 18th for a 4-under-66.

Jeff Maggert, a former Texas A&M All-American, finished the day one shot behind Simpson with a 3-under 67.
