SAN MARTIN, California (AP) - Tiger Woods is in danger of missing the cut in consecutive tournaments for the first time in his career after shooting a 2-over 73 on Thursday in the first round of the Open.

Woods went 13 holes between his two birdies Thursday, looking rusty in his first tournament since missing the cut at the U.S. PGA Championship in August.

On a cool, rainy day at CordeValle on Thursday, Woods was outplayed in his group by college student Patrick Cantlay, who had a 69.

Texas Open winner Brendan Steele was among three players tied for lead at 4-under 67.
