Difference a day makes: Strong start for Tiger


SYDNEY - Following a third-round 75 at the Australian Open Tiger Woods said he needed a fast start on Sunday if he was going to close the six-stroke gap between himself and the lead.

Through four holes at The Lakes he's delivered. Following missed birdie attempts at Nos. 1 and 2, Woods played the third and fourth in 2 under par with birdie putts of 15 and 8 feet, respectively.

John Senden remains in the lead at 12 under, four ahead of Woods who is trying to win his first event in two years.
