Tiger Woods stalks Conners

Tiger Woods stalks Conners

Woods recorded five birdies and one bogey on his way to a four-under 67.

Corey Conners continues to play the role of spoiler in Tiger Woods' efforts to get back in the win column for the first time in almost five years as he carded a three-under 68 Saturday to reach nine-under overall in the 2018 Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor, Florida.

Snedeker joined Woods in posting a 67, with the trio two shots ahead of 21-year-old Sam Burns, who is having the week of his life.

The 42-year-old, making just his fourth PGA Tour start since back surgery, bounced back from a blemish at the 13th to birdie the next and safely negotiated the Snake Pit to remain well-placed to challenge for a first worldwide victory since 2013. He's made 10 previous starts on the PGA Tour this season and finished no better than 29th.

Woods again will play with Snedeker in the final round today in the penultimate pairing while Conners and Rose will comprise the final pair. "I think I'm doing a good job of that through the week so far, so I'll just keep doing that".

Corey Conners was not supposed to be at the Valspar Championship. "I've been ready to go".

The highlights of Woods' penultimate round came around the turn, as he chipped in for an unlikely birdie at the ninth before holing a 22-foot putt at the 10th for another gain. Got to go out there and really play well again. "At least I'm there with a chance going into the weekend".

"I came in here with nothing to lose", he said. Woods had scored better in every round until Saturday.

"To play myself into contention this early into it was nice, and on top of that, to build on what I did a week ago", he said, referring to the Honda Classic when he was on the fringe of contention going to the back nine.

Tiger did what Tiger does and drained it and then delivered a fist pump because... YES! It was one of six birdies Conners made Saturday. "Just kind of vintage Tiger".

Graeme McDowell is the best-placed of the Irish on even par after a three-under 68 that featured four birdies.

He dropped his only shot on the next hole when his tee shot sailed over the green into matted, thin grass where the gallery had been standing.

"Other than that, it's been a pretty clean three days as I feel really good over everything". Casey had three birdies on the front nine but a bogey at the 12th and double bogey at the 16th saw him post a 71 to stay on four under.
