BETHESDA, Md. — It’s still early in what was a delayed third round, but Congressional seems to be giving up some red numbers — at least to Tiger Woods, anyway.
Woods birdied two of his first three holes and is now within three of leader Hunter Mahan after a 34-foot birdie on the third hole.
Congressional is also playing easier, perhaps after being softened by overnight rain from a powerful storm that ripped through the area and left nearly a half-million residents in the area without power.
Others off to a good start include Robert Garrigus, who birdied his first hole and is just one back.
Jhonattan Vegas is 2 under through four holes and within four of the lead, while Greg Owen, who was in the first group off in the reshuffled tee times, is 5 under through 10 holes to get within five of the lead.
