Tiger Woods vaults into contention with solid third round



At the end of the 2018-2019 PGA Tour season, the general consensus among analysts seemed to be that Presidents Cup captain Tiger Woods would be wrong to pick himself to play for the team, given his weak finish to the season and knee surgery in August. Just a week away from the event, however, Woods might just be the scariest player on Team USA’s roster.

Woods won his first start of the wraparound season at the Zozo Championship in Japan in October, and he’s put himself in contention to win his very own event in the Bahamas this weekend. Woods rebounded from an opening round 72 on Wednesday with a 66 in his second round, and his 5-under par round on Friday left him just two shots behind solo leader Gary Woodland.

Woods made the turn at 1-under for the day, but was nearly flawless on the back nine, hitting eight of nine fairways off the tee to set up four birdies. At the 18th, Woods hit a fantastic approach shot and drilled a birdie putt inside 10 feet to get to 11-under for the tournament.

Once the Hero World Challenge concludes on Saturday, Woods and many of the other stars in the field will head to Australia, where the Presidents Cup will begin on Thursday, December 12th.
