Tiger birdies the 16th
In the third round of the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship, Tiger Woods hits his tee shot to 6 feet on the 146 yard, par-3 16th hole and sinks the birdie putt.
NORTON, Mass. – Tiger Woods posted his second consecutive 3-under 68 at the Deutsche Bank Championship, leaving him at 13 under through the first three rounds at TPC Boston.
Woods is tied for third with Dustin Johnson; the two will be paired together in Monday’s final round as they try to chase down leader Louis Oosthuizen, who is at 19 under.
“Obviously I need to put together a really nice round tomorrow,” Woods said.
Woods shot a bogey-free 2 under on his front nine, suffered his lone bogey at the par-3 11th, then birdied the 15th and 16th holes.
But for the second straight day, he birdied just one of the three par 5s at TPC Boston.
“I had some looks today,” Woods said. “I hit the ball well again today and just didn’t make as many putts as I did the first day (when he shot 64).
“With the conditions like this, we’re going to have to shoot some good numbers. It’s definitely gettable.”
Woods said he will need the kind of round on Monday that Oosthuizen shot on Sunday, an 8-under 63.
“It won’t surprise me if somebody shoots 8- or 9-under par tomorrow because of where the pin locations are,” he said. “Somebody is going to go out there and do it. It may be early; it may be late. Who knows, but hopefully I am one of those guys.”
