Palmer Leads Farmers; Tiger Woods Makes Cut

Tiger Woods has never been happier being tied for 65th at a golf tournament.

The 14-time Major winner  birdied  his final hole to make the cut with a 1-under 71 at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. The final birdie was a two-putt from 90 feet away.

He’s 10 strokes behind leader Ryan Palmer. Palmer was 5-under for the day and is 11-under for the tournament.

Palmer finished his round with an eagle and a birdie to finish with a 5-under 67. He is ahead of defending champion Jon Rahm, the #2 player int he world, by one stroke.

Not surprisingly, the near-mythical Woods had the biggest following, which got plenty loud when his final birdie got him to Saturday.

“It was a grind. I fought hard,” Woods said. “Typical. Just me going out there and fighting for whatever I can get. It’s all good.”

The last time Woods made the cut on a PGA event was the 2015 Wyndham Championship, which was also the last time he finished in the top 10.

Meanwhile Rahm, coming off a California victory last week, is surging with some of the best golf of his career.

“I was able to get up-and-down for par, and not making mistakes and taking advantage of the birdie putts,” he said. “I probably shot the lowest I could shoot today.”
