Tiger Woods ties Masters record with 23rd consecutive made cut at Augusta National (with a little help from Justin Thomas)

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Tiger Woods continued his 2023 Masters second round on Saturday morning after inclement weather forced play to be suspended on Friday afternoon.

His first swing? The tee shot at No. 12, which he stuck to just three feet. Woods missed the gimme birdie, which almost kept him from a weekend tee time. On a cold, rainy morning at Augusta National Golf Club, Woods signed for a 1-over 73 after a bogey-bogey finish to walk off the course T-51 at 3-over, outside the top 50 cut.

However, the cut line later moved to 3 over after Justin Thomas bogeyed three of his last four holes, moving Woods to T-49 and inside the cut.

Playing in his 25th Masters, the five-time winner of the green jacket tied the record for most consecutive cuts made in tournament history, matching the mark previously set by Gary Player and later matched by Fred Couples.

Woods made his first trip down Magnolia Lane in 1995 and finished T-41 as the low amateur. He returned in 1996 and missed the cut, the only time he had ever done so. Woods then won in 1997 in his first Masters as a professional and had made the cut in each of his last 23 appearances.
