Woods has failed to make the cut at a major only three times in his professional career, most recently at the 2011 PGA Championship. He was in danger again after a triple-bogey at the 17th hole pushed his score to 3 over for the tournament -- outside the projected cut.

But Woods rallied with his first birdie of the day at the final hole, hitting a delicate chip over a bunker to set up a 6-foot putt. He rolled that one in, though there's little chance of him challenging for his 15th major title. He is 13 shots behind leader Rory McIlroy.
