NORTON, MA - Tiger Woods shot a six-under 65 in the second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship on Saturday, matching his lowest round of the season.
More importantly? Woods played well enough to ensure he makes the 36-hole cut, rebounding nicely from an opening-round 72 that threatened his chances of advancing to the next round of the playoffs.
Woods was tied for 29th place at five-under 137 when he finished in the middle of the day. The cut line hovered around one-under par with the last groups about to start the round.
A poor start Friday had Woods in danger of being knocked out of next week's BMW Championship, which he won last year by eight shots on the way to capturing his second FedEx Cup in three years.
The third event in the PGA Tour playoffs is reserved for only the top 70 players in FedEx Cup points and Woods entered this week No. 65 in the standings.
Woods' bogey-free 65 on Saturday marked just the third time in his last 17 rounds that he broke 70. It matched the 65 he shot in the first round of last week's Barclays as his lowest score of the season.
