Tiger Woods in danger of missing cut in PGA Tour comeback

Tiger Woods was in danger of missing the cut in his PGA Tour comeback as he stood two over par halfway through the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open on Friday.

With the cut for the top 70 players projected to fall at one-under, Woods headed to his back nine on the Torrey Pines North course needing to pick up at least three strokes to qualifying for the weekend.

After a respectable even-par 72 on the South course on Thursday, Woods suffered second-day blues on another magnificent winter's morning next to the Pacific Ocean.

Woods was granted a very advantageous free drop from the "temporary immovable obstruction" and was able to gouge his second shot to near the green and, ultimately, made an easy par.

A large gallery followed his every shot, most in hope of seeing the Tiger of old emerge, but they were still waiting to see his first birdie after nine holes.

Atop the leaderboard, American Ryan Palmer led at nine-under after 11 holes, one stroke ahead of Spanish defending champion Jon Rahm (10 holes) and American Tony Finau (nine holes).
