Woods, who hasn’t won a tournament in 2010, shot a four- under 68 yesterday to finish the third round at 17-under 199.
“I’m excited how I’ve been hitting the golf ball, and how I’ve been managing my game around this course,” Woods said at a press conference yesterday. “This is going to be a fun test tomorrow. I’m looking forward to it.”
Woods has won the Chevron World Challenge four times. It’s an unofficial tournament with a field of 18 players selected from the top 50 in world rankings and has a top prize of $1.2 million.
Woods last won 13 months ago at the Australian Masters. His 281-week run as world’s No. 1 golfer ended on Nov. 1, when Lee Westwood replaced him atop the rankings.
