Tiger Woods leads Tour Championship by 3 after third-round 65

Tiger Woods

Woods began his round with 5 consecutives 3s, six birdies in his first seven holes and shot the lowest score of the day, a 5-under-par 65 to take a three-stroke advantage over Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose into the final round of the Tour Championship, the PGA Tour's season-ending event.

Going into Sunday (NZ time) at East Lake, Woods was at seven-under, tied with Englishman Justin Rose.

Woods last shared the 36-hole lead in the 2015 Wyndham Championship.

The current World No. 21 steadied to shoot par on 17 and then sank a two-footer for birdie on 18 to tie his English rival.

Fowler was four shots back.

Injury issues and personal problems have plagued his career over the years but, while a win on tour has still alluded him, he looks close to his best.

"The best way to describe today is I ground out a round", said Woods, a former two-time victor of the season-ending tournament.

Sugar content of most supermarket yogurts well above recommended threshold
One finding of the study that might come as a surprise to consumers is that organic yogurts were some of the sweetest of all. In these categories, average sugars ranged from 10.8g per 100g in children's products to 13.1g per 100g in organic products.

"This course, the way it's playing right now, you've got to be so patient, " Woods said.

At the fourth, Woods buried another birdie putt from beyond 20 feet to get to 10-under for the tournament, three shots clear of the field.

"There's some guys that can't say they've accomplished that, have got into the Tour Championship, but to have come back from where I've come back from and to get here has been a pretty tall order and something I'm proud of".

Now his name has been atop the leaderboard for consecutive rounds, and it's not an accident. "But I thought I could sneak it up there and get up on the upslope and have a good angle in there, and it just didn't work out".

He started the week second in the standings behind Bryson DeChambeau, who appears to be out of contention after a 75 that left him equal second-last.

Tony Finau and Dustin Johnson, the other top-5 seeds who only have to win to claim the FedEx Cup, have ground to make up on the weekend. He was five shots behind.

Glover was at 14-under 128.
