Had Woods not birdied the par-5 14th hole, and various other stars not fallen into place, he would have finished at 5 over par and tied with Adam Scott. It had the possibility of being a nightmare pairing for officials considering Scott’s caddie Steve Williams is still reeling following a racial comment directed at Woods during an event last week in Shanghai.
Instead, Woods will play the final round with Aaron Baddeley, who he may face at next week’s Presidents Cup, and Scott will play with Peter O’Malley.
