After displaying one of the best performances of his career on Friday, golf fans were anxious to see what was in store for Tiger Woods on Saturday in the third round of the Bridgestone Invitational. Now, it appears as long as he doesn’t display one of the worst performances of his life on Sunday–Woods could be on his way to winning another tournament.
Woods came through with another solid performance on Saturday after finishing with a 2-under (68 on the day)–giving himself a seven-shot lead heading into the final round on Sunday. With the way things have gone so far this year, nobody knew what to expect from Woods following his impressive performance on Friday, but it was good to see him handle the pressure with ease as he looks to be heading towards his 79th win on the PGA Tour.
Woods wasted no time jumping out to a solid start on Saturday after hitting birdies on the first two holes and it will be interesting if he can continue to stay hot on Sunday. As impressive as it is that Woods is already 15-under heading into the final round, it’s even more impressive the next closest golfer to him in the standings is Henrick Stenson at 8-under.
Look out golf world–it looks like Woods is playing at the top of his game once again and it will certainly be interesting to see what his score ends up being after the final round of the Bridgestone Invitational takes place on Sunday.
