Tiger Shoots Third-Round 72 – Stats, Highlights, Quotes

Tiger Woods overcame back-to-back bogeys on the first two holes to post an even-par 72 on Saturday at the Masters. Woods finished his final 16 holes in 2-under par highlighted by birdies on 6, 8, and 16 to reach level par, and remain at 4-over par.

Woods missed 10 of 14 fairways on Saturday, and finished 1-over par (bogey-birdie-par-bogey) on the four long holes at Augusta National.

“I just haven’t gotten it done. I feel like I’m driving it better than I have all year, but I am not capitalizing on it,” said Woods.

“And when I did miss, I missed in the wrong spots. My swing is just off with my irons just at the wrong time.”

QUOTABLE

“I’m hitting so many good putts, they’re just not going in. But I’m not hitting it close enough. I’m not getting up there and not taking advantage of the par 5s, and consequently, a good round is even par.”
– Tiger Woods
