Video: Tiger Woods drains 53-foot birdie during the third round

Tiger Woods had a round to forget on Bethpage Black's greens. For the first time in his career, Woods recorded four three-putts in a round -- a stat that likely should've set off alarm bells had it not been for the simple fact that everyone (sans Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson and Kevin Stadler) struggled on the baked-out putting surfaces.

But Woods' round wasn't a complete failure. He had a couple memorable moments during the round, including this 53-foot birdie putt on the par-3 eighth that sent the New York crowd into a frenzy. Woods is six shots back going into the final round after shooting 1-over 72 on Saturday.
