Woods hit his tee shot on the par-3 15th hole into the water, and took a double bogey when his bogey putt slid left of the hole. He rallied with a pair of birdies to make the turn in 1-under 34.

Rory McIlroy also made the cut at four over but the rest of the Irish challengers will have the weekend off. A three-putt bogey on the par-4 16th was next, but Tiger rebounded with that birdie on 17, surrounded by water and the track's most hard hole.
