SAN MARTIN, California (AP) - Tiger Woods made the cut at the Open after running off three straight birdies early in his round and surviving a bumpy patch in the middle for a 3-under 68 on Friday.

The former No.1 player was seven shots behind leader Paul Casey, who was making a revival of his own.

Woods ended a streak of six straight rounds in which he failed to break par. He has played so little this year that it was the first time since the Masters that he made a 36-hole cut.

Casey won on the Korean tour last week and brought his form to Cordevalle. He had a 7-under 64.

The start of the second round was delayed 2 hours, 20 minutes because of heavy fog.
