The fog finally lifted at CordeValle and revealed a Tiger Woods that looked vaguely familiar.
Woods ran off three straight birdies early in his round and survived a bumpy patch in the middle for a 3-under 68 on Friday in the Frys.com Open. He was seven shots behind Paul Casey, making a revival of his own.
Woods at least will make it to the weekend, ending 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.

Tiger Woods shot a second-round 68 at the Frys.com Open on Friday to make his first 36-hole cut since the Masters. At one under for the tournament, he is within seven strokes of 36-hole leader Paul Casey (64) and has earned a reasonably early tee time Saturday, which may allow him to catch the Stanford-Colorado football game up the road in Palo Alto.
