Tiger Woods Shatters Masters Record with 24 Consecutive Cuts

Golf legend Tiger Woods (USA) has set a monumental record by cutting for the 24th consecutive time at the Masters Tournament.

On the 13th at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, Woods finished the second round of the 88th Masters with a score of 1-over-par 145, placing him in a tie for 22nd and successfully cutting.

With this, Woods has rewritten the record books, having cut in all 24 Masters tournaments he has participated in since 1997. As of the end of the second round, players within the top 50, up to 6-over-par 150, cut.

The last time Woods failed to cut the Masters was in 1996.

Since then, he has made the cut in all 24 Masters Tournaments he has participated in (excluding 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2021) and has claimed the championship five times (1997, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2019).

Until now, Woods has shared the record of 23 consecutive cuts made by Gary Player (South Africa) and Fred Couples (USA). However, after playing 23 holes today, Woods set a new record.

Due to bad weather, the tournament’s first day started 2 hours and 30 minutes late, allowing Woods to play only up to the 13th hole in the first round.

Yesterday, Woods scored 1-under-par, combining two birdies and one bogey through 13 holes, but today, he finished the remainder of the round with two bogeys, concluding the first round at 1-over-par 73, tied for 35th.

Without an hour’s rest, he started the second round, where he traded four birdies for four, ending with an even par.

After a car accident in February 2021, Woods, who had to withdraw in the middle of the third round of last year’s Masters amid schedule disruptions due to bad weather, showed a difference this year.

He recorded a fairway hit rate of 79% in both the first and second rounds, although his green hit rate fell slightly from 50% in the first round to 44% in the second. His average putts per green hit dropped from 1.61 in the first round to 1.5 in the second.

Seven shots behind the joint leaders like Scottie Scheffler (USA) at 6-under-par 138 after two rounds, Woods said, “It’s been a long 23 holes, a long day. But Lance (Bennett, his caddie) and I fought well today, and we’ve got a chance. I’m right there. I don’t think anyone will run off and hide right now.”
