The PGA Tour's second major of the year tees off on Thursday, May 19 at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Scottie Scheffler will be trying to win back-to-back major championships while Jordan Spieth is vying for the career grand slam.

Golf fans will get to find out during Round 2, as Woods is paired with fellow superstars Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth for the 2:36 PM Eastern tee time on Friday.

Tiger Woods shot an opening-round 74 on Thursday, which puts him at +4 going into Friday's second round. At the time of this writing, Woods is currently tied for 119th place. To make the cut, players have to place in the Top 70 (including ties).
Going by this criteria, it looks like the cut after Round 2 could be around +1 or so. That means that Tiger needs to shoot at least a 67 on Friday to have a chance of making the cut. Things look bleak for the GOAT to make the cut at Southern Hills but all golf fans have learned to never doubt Tiger.
The 15-time major champion came out firing on all cylinders on Thursday morning as he made two birdies through his first five holes. However, things came unraveled for Woods during his final nine holes as he carded five bogeys during that span. The Big Cat will need a solid second round to have any chance of making the cut and playing the weekend.
