Tiger Woods has done an excellent job showing flashes of his former self throughout this tournament, as he currently sits five shots back from the lead in tenth place going into Round 3 of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
Round 3’s have been something of a specialty for Woods. He currently leads the PGA Tour in third round scoring, and has hit par or better in 11 out of the 12 third rounds he’s played in.
He’s close to knocking on the door of getting people to ask if Tiger is truly back, but if there was ever a day to do it, it’d likely be on this important Moving Day. He’ll be on at 1:05 pm ET.
Sporting News has you covered with shot-by-shot highlights of Tiger’s performance at Akron. Here are some of the higlights.
Tiger Woods’ score: Round 3
|Hole (Par)||Tiger’s score (Overall)||Place|
|1 (4)||4 (6 under)||T-14|
HOLE 2: Par 5, 526 yards
Second putt: Sinks the shot for par, but, as the broadcasters remind us, this is the easiest hole in the golf course.
First putt: Leaves it a couple feet from the hole, and fives himself an opportunity to save for par.
Wedge: Just waves the wedge shot and hits the ball about 40 feet away from the hole making the save for par a best-case scenario.
Approach: Moves safely from the gallery and back safely into play.
Tee shot: A quick left off the tee shot with the driver, the club that’s been failing me all tournament.
Hole 1: Par 4, 399 yards
Putt: Pours it in for PAR
Approach: He chips it up to six feet away from the hole for a chance at par.
Second shot: Not even close to pin high and the ball sucks it back off the front edge.
Tee shot: Great start with a shot landing nicely onto the fairway. A great ovation from the crowd indicates that old Tiger might be resurfacing, or it’s happiness that he’s finally found the fairway with an iron on this opening hole.
