Tiger woods has overcome many critics to ensure he is still one of the best golfers who has ever lived. After struggling in the past few years for obvious reasons as well as injury, the world number 2 carded an outstanding 67 in the third round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship yesterday afternoon. Woods goes into the final round with a generous 4 shot lead on the trailing pack, but Woods hasn’t won it yet as Graeme McDowell is close behind and breathing down his neck. Tiger Woods has always be known for his incredible quality and flare around the greens and yesterday he showed us just what we were all missing as he played some exuberant and delightful shots to take his score for the tournament to an incredible 18 under par with the final round still to played. Phil Mickelson and Steve Stricker remain 5 shots behind Woods and 1 shot behind McDowell which indicates there is everything to play for in the final round. Woods and McDowell were level near the start of the round as the Northern Irishman eagled the first and the followed with a birdie on the third and at six to join Woods on 15 under par. Woods then re-established his lead with a birdie at five after a bizarre and uncontrolled drive which needed saw Woods recover well, he then continued his fine form with a birdie on the eighth to extend his lead. McDowell, who had gone 46 holes without dropping a shot, then suffered something of a wobble as he followed his first bogey of the week at 11 with a careless double at 14 to gift Woods a five-shot advantage.
