After five consecutive failures at the Grand Slam, the French number 1 Tarbais passed the cut of the British Open on Saturday in Saint-Andrews.
After a satisfactory first day, Friday, ended with a 71 (-1) in the British Open, the oldest of the Grand Slams which started for its 150th edition in Saint-Andrews, this Thursday July 14, the Tarbais Victor Perez (107th player in the world), confirmed on Saturday.
The French number 1 held on for a long time at -1 under par before signing three consecutive birdies at the 12th (par 4, 351 yards), 13th (par 4, 465 yards) and 14th hole (par 5, 614 yards) for a rise to 23rd position in the standings.

Despite a first bogey in his return to the 16th hole (par 4), the Tarbais maintained the rhythm (birdie in the 18th) to return a card at 69 (-4 under par) which allows him to pass the cut of his first Major after five consecutive failures.
American Tiger Woods fails to make the cut
A day marked by the elimination of Tiger Woods after two missed rounds
At 46 and after a car accident in February 2021 which nearly cost him his right leg, Woods was able to fulfill his recovery goal and play the 150th British Open on the historic Saint Andrews course. But the man with 15 Majors – including three British Opens, two of which won at Saint Andrews – returned a final card of +3, for a total of +9. Very clearly above the cut.
