Tiger Woods matches the Master's record for most consecutive made cuts.

Tiger Woods matches the Master’s record for most consecutive made cuts. Tiger Woods, the winner of five Masters, required a helping hand on Saturday but still cut for the 23rd straight year, tying Fred Couples and Gary Player for the longest stretch in Masters history.

Woods needed his friend Justin Thomas or South Korea’s Sungjae Im to make a bogey in the final round to cut, as both players had fallen back to 3 over after 36 holes after making bogeys on the last two holes.

Thomas made a bogey on the last two holes in the pouring rain at Augusta National Golf Club, bringing his final score to 4 over. The cut was the 18th hole, and he missed a par putt from 10 feet out. After missing his last putt, Thomas looked up at the clouds as if he couldn’t believe his eyes.

A bogey on the par-4 17th contributed to Ifinal m’s score of 3 over.

During his round, Woods was asked about the significance of once again cutting. While he did not make the weekend as an amateur in 1996’s Masters, he has never missed the cut in his professional career.

“I’ve always loved this golf course, and I love playing in this event,” Woods said. “I’ve had to miss a few games due to injury, but it has always been a goal of mine to suit up for this team. I enjoyed it. The weekend allowed me to play. I’d love to get in two more games if I can.”

Considering how difficult it has been for Woods to navigate Augusta National Golf Course on his surgically repaired right leg, ankle, and foot, the remaining 36 holes will be challenging.

Due to the weather, Augusta National will play the third round with threesomes and split tees beginning at 11:30 a.m. ET on Saturday. At 1:06 p.m. ET on the 10th tee, Woods, Im, and Thomas Pieters of Belgium are set to begin the third round.

After sinking a birdie putt from 27 feet on the par-5 15th, the 15-time major winner seemed like he was going to cut. On No. 17, though, he made a bogey after a rightward tee shot left him short of the green. On the 18th, his tee shot went left into the woods. He landed a punch, sending his approach shot back fifty yards. He made a bogey with a pair of two-putts.

According to Woods, “I whacked it straight off the heel” on the 18th tee. I went for a low cut but caught it square in the neck instead.

This is the fourth major tournament in Woods’ career in which he has cut the number, per ESPN Stats & Information. He repeated the feat at the 2003 Masters, 2005 PGA, and 2014 Open.

Woods, at 47 years old, returned to competitive golf at the 2022 Masters after an absence of 508 days. He placed 47th. After being seriously hurt in a vehicle accident in February 2021, this was his first competitive outing since then. The weekend’s chill caused him to shoot 6-over 78 in his final two rounds at Augusta National, his worst scores there.
