Tiger out of the woods

Tiger Woods grabs share of the early lead with 3-under 68 at Valspar Championship

Starting on Saturday two shots behind Canadian Corey Conners, Woods made birdies on this third and fifth holes before delighting the galleries when he did not require his putter as he made the turn.

He last tasted victory at the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone in 2013.

"Loud as I've heard it in a long time", Snedeker said. After a discussion with an official to confirm there was no penalty he holed out for a par.

Conners, who has shot three rounds in the 60s, showed no signs of rookie nerves Saturday with birdies on three of his first four holes.

"Tomorrow, there's a packed leaderboard", Woods said.

"It's something that I just find really cool", Conners said with a smile. "I feel like I'm playing a bit better and cleaner". "I kind of knew what to expect out there with a lot of people and lot of people watching, but I felt comfortable. But hopefully, I can play my game and have a good day". I'm excited. I've been ready to go. The crowd willing Woods to take the lead all day and he came close after he hit a wedge to seven feet at the par-5 11th and faced that birdie putt to move to 9 under and the solo lead. Joe Durant, Scott McCarron and Vijay Singh were among the players who challenged Pernice throughout the afternoon, and 13 players were within four shots of the lead heading into the final round.

It becomes the first such station in the state and the fourth in the country. "Finding TTEs and RPF staff is not a major issue". Women will take over Phulwari Sharif railway station in Patna on Thursday, International Women's Day.

Spieth missed the cut for the second time this year. "I'm able to play more feel golf". Then he made his major mistake of the day, hitting over the green at the 13th, leaving him with a almost impossible chip that he left in a bunker. It's great. They get a little carried away at times and you've got to calm 'em down.

Given it is has been over three-years since Woods has been in a position for victory, and given four well-published back operations, Woods was asked what would it mean if he were to win tomorrow.

On Saturday, he played in the group behind Woods.

These will be invaluable reps for Woods, who gets more comfortable with what his fused back will allow him to do every single round.

Watch the final round of the Valspar Championship live on Sunday from 5pm on Sky Sports Golf and 6.30pm on Sky Sports Main Event.

Woods is tied in second place at eight-under with England's Justin Rose (66) and American Brandt Snedeker (67) and with Woods to be again paired with Snedeker over the final day as he was in today's third round.
