Admit it. If you were paying attention to the PGA Championship on Saturday, you felt a familiar feeling as a rather well-known figure began making his charge up the leaderboard. If you're a Tiger Woods fan, you loved it; if you've always loathed Tiger, you hated it; and if you're one of those who can't separate his on-course play from his off-course actions, well, you were probably spitting mad.

Woods played respectable golf in his first round, carding a 1-under 71. He faltered early in his second round, and for a brief moment it appeared he would be in danger of nearing the cut line. But on his Round 2 back 9, he finished with three birdies over the final nine holes, and entered the clubhouse early Saturday afternoon (remember, the fog delayed his round) just a handful of strokes behind the leaders. Would he be prepping for the inevitable charge?

Well, no. Woods stumbled badly in his next nine holes, going +3 to erase all the gains he'd made to that point. And then, just as it looked like he was headed to a Bridgestone-style implosion, he turned it around, wrapping his third round with four birdies against one bogey. He finished the round even par and -3 on the weekend overall.

Not terrible. That's the best we can say. And these days, Tiger will take whatever good news on the course he can get.
