Mashup: Tiger Shoots Third-Round 69 at the Honda

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods posted a 1-under 69 in the third round of The Honda Classic, and is at even par heading into Sunday’s finale at PGA National.

Woods finished his third day in Palm Beach Gardens offsetting a pair bogeys (Nos. 15 and 17) with three birdies, including a final gain on the 18th hole.

Through 54 holes, Woods is 5-over par on the three Bear Trap holes (9 holes), and 6-under par on the remaining 15 holes (45 holes).

“I’m making some tweaks in my golf swing but also trying to understand what this body can do. It’s not like it used to be. Those angles are gone,” said Woods.

“So I’ve had to make a little bit of adjustments here and there and I think I’ve done that, and I think I’ve done a pretty good job of just kind of gradually building it together.

“You know, today was the best I’ve hit it and I thought yesterday was pretty good, but today was a little better.”
