Golf: Tiger Woods storms into contention at Congressional
TIGER Woods eased into contention on day three of the AT&T National at Congressional – but there was nobody there to see it.
The storms that have battered the mid-Atlantic left the Maryland course unsafe for spectators, so Woods was not accompanied by his usual whoops and cheers as he carded a four-under 67 to sit six under overall, one behind leader Brendon de Jonge.
Woods’ round was matched by playing partner Bo Van Pelt who also finished on six under for a share of second, as did South Korea’s Noh Seung-yul after a two-under 69.
Overnight leader Hunter Mahan could only manage a two-over 73 to finish the day five under in joint fifth, alongside Billy Hurley III who carded a best-of-the-day 66.
Jhonattan Vegas of Venezuela was on his own on four under.
Woods was bogey-free for his round, which included birdies at the first, third, sixth and 10th.
Zimbabwean De Jonge, who birdied the second, sixth and 12th, could have had a two-stroke lead but for a bogey on 14. Defending champion Nick Watney was two under, one ahead of England’s Greg Owen who went round in 67. Scotland’s Martin Laird finished the day one over.
