Tiger’s Day 3: Photos, Stats, Quotes, Video

Tiger Woods made four birdies Saturday, including three on the par 5s, en route to a 2-under 70 to sit T39 at 3-under. While he’s eight shots off the lead of Alex Noren, expect the Torrey Pines’ galleries to once again swarm around the 14-time major champion on Sunday.

“They’re out here supporting, they came out to this tournament. Southern California’s always been near and dear to my heart, it’s where I grew up and so many of the people that I haven’t seen in a long time have come out this week, which is fantastic,” said Woods. “It’s great to have a hometown feel.”

Woods will tee off with Italian Francesco Molinari and Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama at 11:15 am (ET) from tee No. 10.

QUOTABLE

“I don’t know about coming together, but it was a struggle out there. I didn’t hit it worth a darn all day. I was really struggling out there trying to find anything that was resemblance of a golf swing.

But I was scoring, I was chipping, putting, I was grinding. I was trying to miss the ball on the correct sides because I know I didn’t have it, trying to give myself the correct angles and I did that most of the day. Then I had to rely on my touch, my feel, my putting and it’s been good all week.”
