After further review, Stricker cut streak alive

Steve Stricker still has the longest active cut streak on the

PGA Tour.

Stricker was considered to have missed the cut at the BMW

Championship last month when he withdrew after the second round

because of a neck injury. There was no cut at the tournament,

although the tour said the streak ended because he did not get

official money.

The tour since has reviewed its records and determined that

Stricker still gets credit for making the cut.

Officials say for a tournament that has a cut, a player must be

among the top 70 and ties through two rounds. If he withdraws or

disqualifies after that, it counts as a cut made. For a tournament

that has no cut, a player only has to finish the first round.

The BMW Championship, part of the FedEx Cup playoffs, only had a

70-man field.

Stricker’s streak is at 42 consecutive tournaments, the longest

active streak. The record belongs to Tiger Woods, who made the cut

in 142 straight tournaments over seven years.
