Tiger one of pace of leader de Jonge at AT&T


BETHESDA, Md. – On a day when only a select group of people were allowed to watch the action at the AT&T National because of violent storms that ripped through the area the night before, the game's biggest name is in contention for a third PGA Tour win this season.

Tiger Woods shot 4-under 67 at Congressional CC on Saturday to trail Brendon De Jonge by a shot heading into Sunday's final round. Woods made four birdies, all on the front nine, including a chip-in for 4 at the par-5 6th hole en route to posting a 6-under total.

The Zimbabwean de Jonge shot 69, dropping just one shot at the 14th, to come in at 7 under par for three rounds.

Joining Woods and de Jonge in Sunday's final group is Bo Van Pelt, who matched Woods with 67 in the same trio. Seung-Yul Noh will be in the next-to-last group, making birdie on two of the last three holes to join the group at 6 under.

Naval Academy grad Billy Hurley III and Hunter Mahan are tied for fifth at 5 under. Mahan had two bogeys and a birdie on both nines to shoot 2-over 73. Hurley quietly made six birdies and a bogey in his final 14 holes to get into a group with Noh and Mahan.

The tournament will resume at 11 a.m. tomorrow with groups of three going off the first and 10th tees. Woods, Van Pelt and de Jonge will start at 1:15 p.m.
