Tiger Woods‘ tee shot stuck in a palm tree was about the only thing that went wrong for him in the Cadillac Championship on Saturday.
Woods made seven more birdies on the Blue Monster, the last one from 15 feet on the 18th hole for a 5-under 67. That gave him a four-shot lead over Graeme McDowell, and put Woods in great position to win a World Golf Championship for the first time since 2009.
McDowell was six shots behind with three holes to play when he chipped in for eagle on the 16th and closed with a two-putt par from 85 feet.
Woods has a 39-2 record when he has the outright lead going into the final round.
Phil Mickelson and Steve Stricker were five shots behind.
