Tiger Woods made a 24-foot birdie putt on his final hole of the second round to get to 1 under for the week and inside the cut line at present time.
Now Woods will wait and see if 1 under is good enough to make it to the weekend. There’s a big wave of players who still need to play their entire second round this afternoon, after which players who make the cut will begin Round 3.
With a full wave of players just starting Round 2, Woods likely won’t know for sure if he makes the cut until approximately 5 p.m. ET at the earliest. If he does, we’ll be back tracking his third round right here.

Hole No. 9: Par 4, 467 yards
OFF THE TEE (11:15 a.m.): Safely in the fairway but 193 yards out and most likely needs a birdie here to make the cut. Shot of the week coming up.
APPROACH SHOT (11:20 a.m.): Carried a 4-iron long of the hole, but he’ll at least have a look at a putt to get back to 1 under for the week.
ON THE GREEN (11:24 a.m.): Get outta here. He made it. Must-make birdie to have a chance at the cut and he made the birdie roll from 24 feet. Unbelievable. Now he sits and waits to see if 1 under will be good enough to make the cut. What a finish.
TIGER ON THE DAY: Even par thru 18 (1 under overall)
Hole No. 8: Par 4, 436 yards
OFF THE TEE (10:57 a.m.): Pulls driver and it’s a good one, safely on the left side of the fairway. Has 169 yards for his second shot and made birdie here yesterday, let’s see if he can do it again.
APPROACH SHOT (11:01 a.m.): On the green but another lengthy birdie putt coming up. Definitely going to get aggressive with it given the circumstances.
ON THE GREEN(11:07 a.m.): No dice from 30 feet. Another par and now almost certainly needs to birdie the last to have any chance at making the cut.
TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 17 (Even overall)
Hole No. 7: Par 4, 394 yards
OFF THE TEE (10:40 a.m.): Middle of the fairway and will have his first good look from the fairway this morning, 134 yards out. Now would be a good time to stick one close.
APPROACH SHOT (10:44 a.m.): Bad beat. Another yard or two and that shot would have been perfect, but lands it just short of where it needs to be and the ball nearly rolls off the green entirely and down the slope. Not what he needed.
ON THE GREEN (10:48 a.m.): Putting from the fringe and had caddie Joe LaCava take a long look at that one, but it’s another miss and a third consecutive par. Needs at least one birdie in his last two holes, maybe two. Not ideal.
TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 16 (Even overall)
Hole No. 6: Par 3, 182 yards
OFF THE TEE (10:29 a.m.): Put it on a good line and safely on the green, but it’s above the hole. Gonna be a quick downhiller for his birdie try.
ON THE GREEN (10:35 a.m.): Big right-to-left breaker and Woods misses on the pro side. Stopped the bleeding with two straight pars but running out of holes now.
TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 15 (Even overall)
Hole No. 5: Par 4, 415 yards
OFF THE TEE (10:14 a.m.): Goes with fairway wood and misses in the left rough. Short par-4 but still going to be a tough second shot from that spot.
APPROACH SHOT (10:18 a.m..): Distance was good but the ball still had a lot of check on it coming out of the rough. Landed hole high and spun back a bit, birdie putt from the fringe coming up.
ON THE GREEN (10:24 a.m.): Gave it a run but doesn’t drop. Makes the short par putt and he’s going to have to get aggressive over the next few holes for sure.
TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 14 (Even overall)
Hole No. 4: Par 3, 218 yards
OFF THE TEE (10:03 a.m.): Not the easiest shot to hit first thing in the morning and Woods misses the green into the left rough. Going to be a tough up-and-down just to save par now, and Woods needs birdies this morning to have a good chance at making the cut.
AROUND THE GREEN (10:06 a.m.): Little long on that chip and a grimace from Woods as he’s going to have a speedy, downhill putt to save par coming up.
ON THE GREEN (10:10 a.m.): Ouch. Missed it on the low side and Woods falls back to even par for the tournament. That’s three consecutive bogeys on the round and he’ll probably need to play the next five holes in at least 1 or 2-under par in order to make the cut.
TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 13 (Even overall)
Tiger Woods is 1 under par and on the cut line with six holes to play in Round 2 of the Genesis Open Saturday at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles. His second round continues at 10 a.m. ET Saturday morning, and we’ll be tracking all the action shot by shot right here.
Woods played 30 holes Friday due to previous weather delays and carded a 1-under 70 in the opening round. Woods teed off on No. 10 to start Round 2 and got to 3 under overall with an eagle at the par-5 first hole. He fell back to the cut line with consecutive bogeys before the horn blew and play was suspended for the night due to darkness.
Woods’ ballstriking was on point for much of the day and he hit 17 of 18 greens in Round 1. He also had four three-putts in the opening round to match a career high.
Woods is currently nine shots off the lead at T-55 and will begin Round 3 Saturday afternoon if he makes the cut.
