Tiger Woods is bidding for his first win since 2013 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
And the American star is currently three shots clear of Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose ahead of today’s play.
The 42-year-old hit a five-under 65 in the third round, which included seven birdies.
“I got off to a nice start and made some nice putts,” Woods said.
“I left myself in good spots, too, so I was able to take a run at some of the putts. Other than No 3, every putt was uphill, so it was nice.
“I felt like I could free-wheel it, and they went in.
“I would love to be able to win this event. I’ve got a three-shot lead.
“I’ve got a bunch of guys behind me that have been playing well and are playing well, and we’ll see what happens.”
Woods has looked much more like his old self in recent months after recovering from surgery on a back injury which had threatened to end his career last year.
The golf icon has been paired with McIlory for the final round of the Tour Championship with the duo scheduled to tee-off at 7.05pm BST.
Can Tiger Woods win Fedex Cup with Tour Championship victory?
Woods is just 18 holes away from ending a five-year wait for a tournament win.
And victory at the Tour Championship could also see the American win the FedEx Cup, which he has won twice previously.
But it is not guaranteed, as Woods will also need a number of scenarios to to fruition at East Lake Golf Club, including:
– Bryson DeChambeau finishing tied for 15th or worse. (He is tied for 21st).
– Justin Rose finishing in a three-way tie for fifth or worse. (He is tied for second).
– Tony Finau finishing tied for third or worse. (He is tied for sixth).
– Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas finishing in a three-way tie for second or worse. (Both are tied for 9th).
– Keegan Bradley finishing tied for second or worse. (He is tied for 27th).
