AUGUSTA, Ga., April 12 - A look at the nine times Tiger Woods came close to missing the cut. His streak of cuts made is 102, second-longest in PGA Tour history:
1999 Buick Invitational: Woods had double bogeys on Nos. 10 and 14 and made the cut by two strokes. He closed with 62-65 on the weekend to win by two shots.
2000 Buick Invitational: Woods was at even par at Torrey Pines, two below the cut line, until he made five birdies and one great par save on the back nine for a 68. He was tied for the lead Sunday and wound up four strokes back, tied for second.
2000 Canadian Open: Woods was only one shot better than the cut with four holes to play when he went birdie-eagle-birdie-eagle. That gave him a 65, and he went on to win by one stroke over Grant Waite.
2001 U.S. Open: Woods had a 74 and a 71, and at one point was 11 strokes behind Retief Goosen. The U.S. Open cut is top 60 and everyone within 10 shots of the lead. He finished eight back to make the cut, then had two 69s to tie for 12th.
2001 Buick Classic: Woods played 35 holes Friday because of a rain delay. He opened with a 75, but pulled it together in the afternoon. He drove the par-4 10th green and made birdie, holed a bunker shot for another birdie and secure his weekend status with a birdie on his 16th hole. He had a 66 in the second round, had 68-71 on the weekend and tied for 16th.
2001 PGA Championship: Woods was two below the projected cut when he holed a 40-foot birdie putt from off the 15th green, then a 30-foot birdie putt on No. 16. He wound up making the cut by one, had 69-70 on the weekend and tied for 29th.
2002 Pebble Beach National Pro-Am: Woods was one stroke better than the cut and facing a 15-foot par putt on No. 12. He made his par, added an insurance birdie on No. 16 to make it by two shots. He had 71-68 on the weekend to tie for 12th.
2002 Buick Invitational: Coming off double bogey on No. 17, Woods needed a birdie on the final hole to make the cut. He holed a 6-footer for birdie to make it on the number, then closed with rounds of 69-65 to tie for fifth.
2003 Masters: Woods was on the cut line at 5 over par when he birdied his 16th hole, No. 7, and appeared to be safe with a 25-foot birdie chance on the next hole. Instead, he three-putted for bogey, then hit his drive behind a pine tree. He hit a waist-high shot into the bunker, blasted out to 3 feet and powered the putt into the right side for par. He finished at 5 over and made the cut on the number.
