HE LOOKED like the Tiger Woods of old. Wild tee shots sprayed onto opposite holes, bold recovery shots from thick rough, scrambling around the greens for crucial par saves, and all in front of enormous crowds.

But after two rounds of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines near San Diego, Woods made his first cut on the US PGA Tour since August 2015. Since then, the chronically injured 42-year-old has played just one official US Tour event and last year spent 10 months on the sidelines recovering from spinal fusion surgery.

Saturday, the 14-time major winner backed up his opening 72 with a one-under- par 71 on Torrey Pines’ North course, scraping inside the 36-hole cut on the number.

“It was a grind; I fought hard,” said Woods.
