Tiger Woods looked to have made the cut at the Northern Trust in the FedEx Cup playoffs after an even-par second round.

The 14-time major champion shot a 71 at Ridgewood Country Club in New Jersey on Friday to finish the first two rounds at even par on the projected cut line. Woods managed to make just two birdies to go with a pair of bogeys as he finished his second round in a tie for 69th.

The 42-year-old is 10 shots back of leader Jamie Lovemark, who is 10-under for the tournament after back-to-back five-under 66s. Woods entered the week 20th in the FedEx Cup standings.
