World number one Tiger Woods equalled a 54-year-old PGA Tour record as he made his 113th consecutive cut with a second round of 67 at the Funai Classic on Friday.

Woods reached 11 under - four shots behind tournament leader Vijay Singh - to match Byron Nelson's long-standing run.

"I'm very proud," said Woods.

"It's not something that is easy to do. There are times when I should have missed, but a little luck and a lot of hard work has paid off.

"Byron Nelson's record is phenomenal, but I think he's a better person than his playing record."

Woods' last missed cut was at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in 1998 and in 145 starts as a professional he has only ever missed one other cut, at the 1997 Canadian Open.

Singh leads the field by one shot at 15 under with Bob Estes, one of several players to go round in 63 in the second round, in second place.

MOST CONSECUTIVE CUTS MADE ON PGA TOUR
113 Tiger Woods (1998-present)
113 Byron Nelson (1941-49)
105 Jack Nicklaus (1970-76)
86 Hale Irwin (1975-78)
72 Dow Finsterwald (1955-58)
John Rollins and David Peoples share third place, while world number four Davis Love III, Stewart Cink and Scott Verplank are among six players tied for fifth spot.

Singh - Woods' main challenger at the top of the PGA Tour money list - played the front nine in even par before reeling off five straight birdies, followed by an eagle at the 16th.

"I didn't play well my front side," said Singh.

"I was fighting my swing a little bit. Even par is the best I could have done, but I got going on the back nine, made some nice putts and started feeling good again."

The Funai is being played at two par-72 courses in the Walt Disney World Resort, the Palm and Magnolia, for the first two rounds. The final two rounds will be played at the Magnolia.
