Tiger Woods makes cut on number

"It's not a surprise," Woods said. "[McIlroy] has done this before. He's won both of his majors by 8. When he gets going, he can make a lot of birdies. And he plays pretty aggressively to begin with. When he's going, he can get it going pretty good."

Woods' 18th-hole birdie helped him avoid a few dubious additions to his resume. He's had just three rounds in major championships where he didn't make a birdie, the last coming during the first round of the 2010 U.S. Open. And he's never missed back-to-back cuts in his pro career, having missed just 11 worldwide.

Woods said Saturday's weather -- which is predicted to be poor for most of the day -- will determine how he plays the course. And he wouldn't rule out a comeback, however unrealistic one may seem at this point.

"It gives me a chance," Woods said when asked how important it was for him to make the cut. "I'm pretty far back. Luckily I have two rounds, and hopefully I can do something like Paul Lawrie did in '99. He made up 10 in one day, and hopefully I can play well on the weekend and at least give myself a shot on the back nine on Sunday."
