Masters: Tiger Woods 4 Behind After 3 Rounds
Tiger Woods struggled with his putter on the third day at Augusta to finish Round 3 at 2-under 70 for a 54-hole total of 8-under 208, good enough for a tie of third place with K.J. Choi of South Korea. Leading the pack going into the final 18 holes on Sunday is Lee Westwood, who carved out a 4-under 68 for a 12-under 212.
World No. 2 Phil Mickelson, who is considered the sentimental favorite as his wife and mother are both fighting breast cancer, signed a 5-under, back-to-back-eagle spiked 67 to lie one shot behind Westwood. Mickelson eagled the 13th and 14th to become only the third player in Masters history to score two-consecutive eagles.
Woods, on the other hand, had an up-and-down day, starting off with two birdies that put him one shot off the lead. His round would unravel after that, leaving him seven shots behind at one point. He recovered with late birdies to tee off just ahead of Westwood and Mickelson on Sunday.
