AUGUSTA, Ga. – Tiger Woods made three birdies in a row on the back nine Saturday at the Masters, and it didn’t constitute a charge.
In fact, Woods wasn’t even keeping up. He was falling behind making birdies.
That’s how crazy this Masters Saturday was with Phil Mickelson making eagle-eagle-birdie at the same three holes that Woods made his run of birdies.
“The guys were running away from me,” Woods said.
Woods shot 2-under-par 70 and is tied for third four shots behind the leader, Lee Westwood, going into Sunday’s final round. Woods has never won a major without holding a lead or a share of it after 54 holes.
“At one point I was seven back, so to kind of claw my way back in there where I'm only four back right now, I'm in good shape,” Woods said.
