Tiger Woods came into the Masters this year approaching a record for made cuts at the event, which speaks to his greatness over the years. And after an extended round of golf on Friday, he was able to break the tie for the record that only adds to his claim as one of the greatest golfers in the history of the sport.

Woods was one of the many golfers unable to finish his opening round of the tournament on Thursday due to a delayed start, playing the opening 13 holes at one under par before play was suspended. This meant he needed to finish out the final five holes of his opening round and play 18 more holes in Round Two on Friday.

This obviously raised questions as to whether his body would hold up over the course of this extended day of play on Friday. He was ultimately able to get through the day, and did so quite impressively.

He finished his opening round at one-over-par and continued the steady play into his second round. Woods then played his second round at even-par to finish at a total of +1 through 36 holes.

His +1 score through 36 holes is well above the current projected cutline at +4, meaning that he will indeed be playing on the weekend. It also means that Woods now holds the record for the most consecutive made cuts at Augusta National, marking his 24th straight at the event.

The level of consistency from Woods to have accomplished this feat is simply remarkable at such a difficult event like the Masters.

At his current score, Woods is still a bit away from contending, currently sitting in a tie for 25th place. However, given his success at the course over the years, Woods will be a hard player to count out over the weekend.
