Tiger Woods holds the PGA Tour for most consecutive cuts made. He made 142 cuts in succession from the 1998 Buick Invitational till EDS Byron Nelson Championship in 2005. Tiger was at a peak in his career during these six years and won almost every time he stepped on the tee box.  

In these six years, he made it to the weekend every time he took the field. Tiger was already a well-known name in the golf community because of his extraordinary skills. And it looked like he could do anything on the golf course with a club in his hands. 

Tiger Woods is at the top of the list of the players who have made the most consecutive cuts. And there isn’t a single golfer from the current PGA Tour anywhere near him. He gained a lot of popularity during this period and became the face of golf around the world. Woods is also tied with Sam Snead for most PGA Tour wins as well. They both have 82 PGA Tour victories.
