Woods makes timely recovery

Norton - Tiger Woods kept his playoff hopes alive with a 6-under 65 in second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship on Saturday.

Woods was three shots below the cut line at the start of the day. He birdied four of his opening seven holes to eliminate any concerns about missing the cut.

When he finished with one last birdie, Woods was in the middle of the pack and perhaps starting to think he had a chance to win the tournament.

The wind that arrived in the middle of his round - at times with big gusts - could make scoring harder in the afternoon. Woods is No. 65 in the FedEx Cup playoff standings. He needs to be in the top 70 to advance to the third round next week in Chicago.
