HOLE 11 – Par 5

This hole started the second round of Woods after it holed for an eagle to a mbadive roar of the gallery. But today there is not so much luck.

Still 5 low in the day and 10 less in the tournament and in third place by itself.

HOLE 10 – Par 4

It gets a bit playful with the short throw but rolls on a 4 foot foot to save torque. Stay -10.

HOLE 7 – Par 5

Tiger takes advantage of the second par 5 in the first nine. He was back on the street from the tee and launched his approach from 252 yards toward the back of the green, but more than 50 feet from the cup. From there, he made two putts to get a second consecutive birdie (after an eagle in the No. 5) and now has 9 under par for the tournament, just two strokes away from the leader (T-3).

HOLE 6 – Par 4

Tiger's move has officially begun. He drilled a 300-yard drive on the fairway at No. 6 and hit his approach shot just under 10 feet from the pin. His putter gets into a slot and he drills it again, carding a birdie to get a par under par on the day and 8 in total (T-5). Here we go …

HOLE 5 – Par 5

Woods finally gets the putter in his first par 5 of the day. His handling again found the right side of the street and his approach from 237 yards was installed almost 14 feet from the cup. And, finally, Tiger hits a putt from a distance, drilling the eagle's putt to get to 2 low in the day and 7 in general (T-13).

HOLE 4 – Par 3

The iron game of the tiger looks good at the beginning of the third round, but its release continues to betray it. His tee shot at No. 4 lands 15 feet from the cup, but he loses another birdie putt and settles for par – again. A frustrating start for Tiger, I'm sure. He is even in the day but is sliding down the leaderboard and is now T-36 with 5 below the general.

HOLE 3 – Par 4

Once again, Tiger finds the fairway from the tee and hits him near his approach from 139 yards, placing him just over eight feet from the hole. But once again, his putter can not be converted as he misses the birdie attempt. It launches a third consecutive pair and remains in 5 below the general (T-34).

HOLE 2 – Par 4

Tiger again found the fairway with his drive in No. 2 and his approach shot was a little more marked, hitting him 12 feet from the cup. His birdie putt was simply lost, so look for another pair. He is even through two holes and still has 5 less (T-33) for the tournament.

HOLE 1 – Par 4

Tiger starts his third round with a drive on the fairway, but his approach to the green was long and left and landed in the bunker on the green side. His shot of sand curled up 4 feet from the cup and Tiger drained the putt by par. That is a solid start despite the wayward approach shot. He is even in the day and -5 for the tournament, currently in a tie at the 32.
