BACKING IN

April 04, 2005

When Tiger Woods bogeyed the 18th hole at the end of his second round, he dropped to one under par. At the time it looked as if the cut would be two under, leaving Woods on the outside and ending his record streak of 139 straight cuts made. Woods seemed as aware of the possibility as anyone, since he avoided the media when he came off the course by taking a footbridge over the walkway where reporters wait to speak with the players. The golf gods, however, were on Woods's side. In the afternoon the breeze picked up and so did the scores. By the end of the day the cut line had moved to one under and Tiger's streak was still alive.
