Tiger Woods shot a 3-under 68, but it could have been way better in the third round of the Dell Technologies Championship.
Boston: Tiger Woods shot a 3-under 68, but it could have been way better in the third round of the Dell Technologies Championship.
After 72 and 66 on first two days a 68 took him to 7-under for the tournament and at six behind the leader Abraham Ancer, he is T-16th.
Mexican Ancer opened with three straight birdies enroute to 6-under 65 to take a 1-shot lead Bryson DeChambeau, who is coming off a four-shot victory in the first FedExCup Playoffs event. DeChambeau shot 63 while playing with Woods for the first time in a tournament, to be tied with Tyrrell Hatton (69).
Ancer, No. 92 in the FedExCup is hopeful of getting into the top 70 to advance to the playoff event next week. He was at 13-under 200 and a win would assure a trip to the TOUR Championship and the Masters.
Ten players are within four shots of Ancer and it includes a group that has Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth.
Woods and DeChambeau have been regular practice partners though they had never been in the same group till the third round.
