In his second tournament since his serious car accident 15 months ago, the cool weather hit the 46-year-old. Woods hobbled across the square in phases during the third round, and again and again he shook his head. The low point was a triple bogey on the 6, from the ninth to the 13th hole, Woods also suffered five bogeys in a row for the first time in his career at one of the four big tournaments. On the 15 he recorded his only blow of the day.
“I just didn’t play well. I didn’t hit the ball well and didn’t have the start that I needed,” said Woods: “I never really had a swing on my side.” When asked whether he would start the final round on Sunday, Woods answered evasively.
When Woods reached the clubhouse on Saturday afternoon (local time) after completing his round, the top players around surprise leaders were not yet on the pitch.
