Tiger once again can’t make his birdie putt at 18. So he settles for a third-round 66. It’s hard to be disappointed with a 66 but it could have been so so so much better for Tiger today. Remember Gary Woodland? He just birdied 14 to move into sole possession of second at -9.
Fair point on the creakiness but the best scenario for Woods would’ve been no storm and no weather delay at all. Friday was quite possibly the softest most gettable setup in major championship history. Hard to know if the elements will conspire to make it equally inviting on Saturday. (Although I suppose it’ll still be soft.)
Don’t love the idea of him playing 46 holes in two days (and he probably doesn’t either) but he’s a world-class grinder. He won’t let it rattle him. Plus that steamy weather should help keep his back oily. His glutes too.
