TIGER WOODS: No sauteing today, no. I did.
TIGER WOODS: I did. I hit two good putts back to back on seven and eight, one horseshoed and the other one hit something that kicked it straight right, but then I went here on 9 and just hit a full release over the top, duckhook for a putt. It wasn't very good. It had no chance of going in.
TIGER WOODS: It was kind of like an old cup sitting out there, and for some reason there was a couple stake marks that kind of kicked it up the hill. I didn't think the old cup would affect it but it was breaking right in the hole. It was going to catch the right of the hole and it kicked it straight right.
TIGER WOODS: Well, I didn't know what the cut was. We thought it was going to be about one or two. Starting out the day it was at two, and evidently it dropped, which is kind of remarkable on this golf course.
Q. When you see low numbers earlier in the day it doesn't say patience?
TIGER WOODS: No, because you understand that this golf course is such that if you go out there and post a good solid round you're going to move up. That's one of the great things about this golf course is that if you go out there and shoot a round in the mid-60s you're going to be next to the lead all of a sudden. It's just a matter of going out there and doing it.
TIGER WOODS: It depends on the weather. I don't know -- we're going off two tees. I'll probably go off the back nine first. We'll see what happens.
TIGER WOODS: I felt a lot better, yes. I started getting back in sync again, started getting the rhythm of my swing. My setup felt a lot better than it did yesterday, and consequently I hit the ball a heck of a lot better.
Q. When you analyze this round do you look at an opportunity lost because you were swinging round?
TIGER WOODS: I'm not going to analyze it. It's one of those rounds you just move onto the next.
Q. Your streak of consecutive cuts, is that something you take pride in?
TIGER WOODS: You know, I've always taken pride of that. I've always taken pride in the fact that I never dog it. All of you know that about me, that I'll give it everything I've got to the very end. I take great pride in the fact that I've been as consistent as I've been. Even the days where I didn't play well like yesterday where I could have easily shot a high number, I still hung in there and kept myself in the tournament.
TIGER WOODS: That was just an example of short game. I opened out at the death yesterday. I didn't hit the ball great, but I made some great saves. Again today I put myself in some precarious positions here and there and I still got up and down. Is that it?
