Tiger Watch Round 2: Woods knocks down birdie putt on 18 to make cut, at +2 after 5-over 77

Tiger Woods needed to sink a five-foot birdie putt to make the British Open cut at Royal Liverpool, and calmly rolled it into the cup. 

The 14-time major winner will have his say into the weekend despite shooting a gutting second-round 77. 

Woods quickly erased the strokes he gained Thursday, giving three back over his first two holes. He then tallied 14 straight pars before sending his drive out of bounds from the 17th tee and kicking it around until ultimately carding a triple-bogey. 

His putt on 18 prevents Woods from missing consecutive cuts for the first time on the PGA Tour and ensures that we see his Sunday red at a major for the first time in 11 months. 

Woods will be one of the first golfers on course Saturday.
