Things got worse for Woods - and McIlroy. Both bogeyed the fourth and fifth to be four over and five over and as a result they were 85th and 94th in a field of 126.
McIlroy revived his hopes of being around for the weekend when he pitched to two feet on the long eighth and then chipped in at the ninth - after almost driving the water.
Out in 37, he was back up to four over, two outside the predicted the cut mark and joint 84th.
Woods was one shot better and 72nd after getting up and down from sand on the eighth and also narrowly escaping a visit to the lake on the next.
McIlroy took an adventurous route, to say the least, on the tenth. After driving left close to the trees he went across the fairway into a bunker, came out in the rough and put his next in more sand.
At least he got up and down from there, but it was a bogey six and even after saving par from 12 feet at the short 12th - he was in yet another bunker - he was down in 91st place.
Woods two-putted the tenth, but went over the next green and with a bogey was outside the cut line again at 73rd.
Meanwhile, Rose's lead was down to one over Donaldson and Dane Thorbjørn Olesen, both of whom were just starting the back nine.
