But Woods moved up from T-14 to T-12, and Saturday was another round to build on - even if there is still a good deal to be desired.

With the winds down a bit, Woods appeared to have the most command of his game yet this week. After starting his first two rounds with some wayward shots, he was sharp from the beginning Saturday.

Tiger Woods' driving issues may be curbed this week for a simple reason

  Tiger Woods' driving issues may be curbed this week for a simple reason Tiger Woods' driving issues may be curbed this week for a simple reasonConversely, driving accuracy has never been Tiger's forte. An issue that's been amplified in appearances at Torrey Pines and Riviera, as the 14-time major winner has hit just 35.71 percent (30/84) of fairways in return. Six rounds is not enough to count towards the tour's official stats, but out of the 214 golfers who qualify, only Andrew Loupe (33.12 percent) has been worse in driving precision. In short, if Woods wants to stop battling the cutline, improved play off the tee is vital.

Tiger Woods backed up his 70-71 start at the Honda Classic with a 1 - under 69 on Saturday to get back to even par on the week. It's the first round Woods has shot Still, Woods will be inside the top 15 heading into Sunday, which is a massive win for him just three tournaments into his 2018 comeback.

He opened his round with three simple pars before being tested at the par-4 fourth. But he drained a 7-footer for par to keep matters on track. Three more pars followed to make it seven straight to start, and Woods actually missed some birdie opportunities to get his round rolling.

But he made up for it a bit when he launched a 9-iron to 6 feet at the par-4 eighth and drained the putt for a birdie to move to 1 under for the day and even par overall.

Woods continued to give himself birdie chances but couldn't capitalize at Nos. 9, 10 and 11. He showed his mettle, though, at the par-4 12th.

He blasted his drive there into a bunker, hit his second into the lip and wedged to 17 feet after his second bounded out of the bunker into the fairway.

After that mess, Woods drained the putt for a key par - with a fist pump to boot. He used that momentum at the next, draining a 15-footer for birdie to move to 2 under for the day and 1 under for the tournament.

Tiger has played enough rounds to qualify for PGA Tour's stat leaders; here's how he stacks up

  Tiger has played enough rounds to qualify for PGA Tour's stat leaders; here's how he stacks up Tiger Woods has now played enough rounds to qualify for the PGA Tour's stat leaders. Here's how he stacks upGranted, it's a small sample size, but there's still plenty to be gleaned from the numbers Tiger has put up thus far. Let's start with the bad stuff, which not surprisingly begins on the tee. Woods ranks 213th in driving accuracy (out of 216 players), hitting the fairway at just a 45-percent clip. That has no doubt played a large role in him ranking only 206th on tour in greens in regulation (more on his iron play later). However, those struggles are somewhat mitigated in the strokes gained: off-the-tee stat, where Woods checks in at No. 146 at -.

Revived Tiger Woods insists he can win from four shots back at Honda Classic . For injury context: this marked his first round in the 60s for 917 days. “These greens are a little bit tricky and Woods reached the turn in 34, one under , courtesy of a birdie at the 8th. Putts for likewise had slipped by at

Tiger Woods ’s 70 in the Honda Classic , level par at the Florida course, arguably represents his boldest statement of his comeback year. Woods had raced to two- under within four holes. He knew his leaderboard position all right. “Yeah, but there were how many holes still to go?” he later said with

However, that would prove to be his high-water mark for the round.

The Bear Trap (Nos. 15-17) got Woods again. A day after finding the water right at the par-3 15th, Woods bailed well left in the rough. It cost him a bogey, ending his bogey-free run on the day. He then bogeyed the par-3 17th after another left miss off the tee.

Woods was able to finish strong, though, by chipping to inches for a birdie at the par-5 18th - his first birdie on a par 5 all week.

On the day, Woods found nine of 14 fairways, hit 13 of 18 greens and took 29 putts.

This was certainly the best he looked driving the ball all week, and his approach play also appeared to be at its best all week for most of the round.

For the first time in these three days, Woods actually seemed to be shooting a worse score than the way he was playing. He was in control from tee to green most of the round and missed a number of mid-range birdie chances over the first 11 holes.

Tiger Woods fired a one - under 69 in Saturday's third round of the 2018 Honda Classic to leave him seven strokes behind the lead with the afternoon wave of Woods , who opened with seven straight pars, finished the round with three birdies and two bogeys to reach even par overall after 54 holes.

On Sunday, Tiger Woods , who entered the final round of this year’s Honda Classic 7 strokes off the lead, reached No. 15 at 3 - under for the day, 4 A double bogey on the hole ultimately removed Woods from the trophy chase, but he still came away with his best finish in three starts since he

His work around the greens remained solid, but his putter was definitely just lukewarm for most of the day. If it had been hot, this could've been a score in the mid-60s.

Once again, Woods struggled to finish out a round, too. His ball-striking fell apart a bit at the end, especially on tee shots at the closing par 3s. Woods also did himself no favors with his full wedges on Saturday, as he failed to get approach shots close with those clubs.

But he's still proving the pieces are there in just his third official PGA Tour start in his return.

He'll have a good shot Sunday to best his T-23 at the Farmers Insurance Open. If on Sunday his ball-striking can stay like it was for most of Round 3 and his putter is hot, you never know.

It was six years ago that Woods closed in 62 at the Honda Classic, nearly completing a nine-shot comeback.

Woods has plenty of work to do, but Sunday remains full of possibilities.
