Tiger Woods makes PGA Tour cut for first time since 2015

He looked like the latter for much of the second round at the Farmers Insurance Open, but we got a handful of vintage Tiger moments when he needed them most.

"It's obviously a new thing, playing more over here, for me", said Noren, who isn't entirely unfamiliar with playing in the US, having been an All-American at Oklahoma State in the early 2000s, "but it's still golf and I've been nervous before and I'm a little bit nervous coming into tomorrow". He parred each of his next five holes.

Woods shot a 1-under-par 71 Friday, putting him at a 1-under 143 for the tournament at Torrey Pines in San Diego.

Tiger Woods was unimpressed with his third round display despite carding a two-under-par 70 at the Farmers Insurance Open before revealing his "feels are all off".

He leads by one shot over Ryan Palmer, who struggled after building a two-shot lead with a 45-foot eagle putt on the par-5 15th. A long lag from around 80 feet left Woods a simple tap-in birdie, and it was off to the weekend. He shot a one-under 35 through his first nine holes and was two under for the tournament as he started his back nine.

"It's really fun to be the last person that won here and be playing good again and have a chance to go back-to-back, " Rahm said.

Left out of the mix was Phil Mickelson, who was three shots out of the lead until he shot 41 on the back nine. This is the California native's second appearance after T49 a year ago.

Noren has nine European Tour victories and is No. 19 in the world.

"Some of my go-to shots aren't there", he said. After he reached the par-5 ninth green on the North Course in two shots on his 18th hole of the day, all indications were that he'd need to manage two putts for birdie to hang around for the weekend. He also missed six greens on the first nine, including on both par-3s, which he played in 2 over.

Woods initially returned to competitive golf after a 10-month absence at the Hero World Challenge in December, but that's not an official PGA Tour event.

Players who played the South Course on Thursday will play the North Course on Friday, while those who played the North Course Thursday will play the South Course Friday.

He also stated, atypically for this victor of that colossal number (14) of major tournaments, that he must tweak his expectations as he navigates rustiness.

When Woods said he fought to make the cut, he was talking about a full-on brawl with the North Course.

He said it all feels different from previous sunny days because back then, he said, "I wasn't fused" - a reference to his vertebrae-fusion surgery in April 2017.
