Woods sits on eight under par after three rounds at Bellerive after shooting a 66 on Saturday.
That leaves him four shots behind leader Brooks Koepka with Australian Adam Scott two shots further back on ten under.
Woods will tee off at 7.35pm UK time alongside Gary Woodland, who led going into the third day.
Woods was also forced to complete his second round after weather interrupted play on Friday.
But that didn’t stop him notching a 66 during his third round – Woods’ best round in a major since 2006.
“I feel like I played well today. I played 29 holes, dropped three shots today and two of those were three-putts,” Woods said.
“I thought I played really clean cards, really clean rounds. And I just wish I could have got myself a couple more shots closer to the lead, especially with 17 the way it’s playing, they’re moving the tee way up like that.
“18 is playing pretty short as well. So I’m sure that I’ll be more than just four back by the end of the day, but there aren’t a lot of guys up there in front of me.”
Woods is now well placed to challenge for a first major since 2008.
And here’s when the 14-time major winner will tee off.
