Tiger Woods shot a two under 68 in the third round on Saturday in his first Wyndham Championship to be in contention near the top of the leaderboard.
Tiger Woods shot a two under 68 in the third round on Saturday in his first Wyndham Championship at Greensboro, North Carolina to be in contention near the top of the leaderboard.
The former world number one is two strokes behind leader Jason Gore in a three-way tie for second with Jonas Blixt and Scott Brown at 13 under. Blixt shot a career-best 62, and Brown a 66.
In a chat with media, Woods said he felt that if he made a few birdies in Sunday’s final round then he was in with a chance.
“I need to go out there tomorrow and make a run and get myself up there and make some birdies,” Woods said.
“There’s a bunch of guys … at 13 [under]. There are a whole slew of guys at 12, 11, 10. Anybody can make a run and shoot the score Jason and Jonas [Blixt] did.”
Woods reeled off 10 consecutive pars and at one stage was a stroke away from Gore on the 16th.
“I felt very steady from the word go,” said the American.
“The putter just felt really good. My pace, I felt like I could be aggressive,” Woods said.
“I took a few runs at putts and ripped them past the hole, but I never felt like I was going to miss any of them. I took a rip at them. Some I made some I didn’t.”
Gore, a close friend of Woods, said that he was glad to see his fiend in contention after last winning two years ago.
“I think it’s awesome to see him playing well again, to see him playing like Tiger Woods,” Gore said. “That’s what we all want to see.”
