LOS ANGELES – Tiger Woods rolled on Saturday morning in a 24-foot birdie putt on his last hole to turn what was then a missed cut at the Genesis Open into two more rounds in Riviera Country Club.
Woods & # 39; Birdie meant he completed 36 holes at 141, 1 under par, and was in 52nd place after the second round ended at 17:45 Saturday. As it turned out, even 142 was just good enough to make the cut, but it was not certain that Woods ended up halfway through the 144-player field on Saturday after the Friday's lap was closed because of darkness.
The third round began at 6 pm ET on Saturday with Woods starting his round at 6:40 pm. ET.
Woods sounded confident that he would be present for the remainder of a tournament that has given him over the years. And he was happy about it, despite the sluggish leaders of Justin Thomas and Adam Scott with ten shots.

"It can not be worse than the first day, four 3 putts are as bad as a human being can be."
After Woods scored 17 of 18 greens in the first round, but hit only 8 in the second round and had to play six holes on Saturday morning with a starting temperature of 46 degrees. Immediately he made his first hole, the par-3-fourth and then the first, until he dropped the birdie-putt to ninth.
When Woods finished the time, he was ranked 101 in the field, scoring hits. Having needed 34 in the first round, he got 27 in the second round, an eagle, three birdies and five bogeys.
Woods, who serves as tournament host for his TGR foundation, had a strange story in Riviera, the course closest to his home in Southern California, two as an amateur, he has no wins, three miscuts and four top -10, along with a year the tournament went to the Valencia Country Club, Woods has played this event most in his career without a win.
He tried to avoid the 20th retirement of his professional career worldwide and 19th place in the PGA Tour. Woods, who has not missed a cut since the US Open, has missed 15 of his 19 PGA Tour cuts since 2010 and two of them in 2018.
