Tiger Woods needed a low one and he got it Saturday at the BMW Championship.
Woods turned in a bogey-free, 5-under 67 at Medinah to move to 7 under through 54 holes. He was five shots better than playing competitor Dustin Johnson and moved closer to the top-11 finish he needs to advance to next week's Tour Championship.
He got things going by holing an 8-footer for birdie at the par-4 fourth hole.
Woods then hit the green in two at the par-5 seventh and two-putted from 16 feet for his second birdie of the day.
He again hit a par-5 green in two, at No. 10, and made birdie after lagging it close from 48 feet. His third birdie on a par 5 came on an 8-foot birdie make at No. 14.
Two holes later, Woods sunk a 26-footer at the par-4 16th for his final birdie of the day.
