He is vying for his first victory since the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the 80th of his career.
The very sight of Woods - neon pink shirt, gray trousers and cap, white shoes - was rare enough anymore to have been considered gawk-worthy on its own, his every move chronicled by hundreds of smartphone cameras. After a discussion with an official to confirm there was no penalty he holed out for a par. Playing out of the penultimate twosome with Tiger Woods (67), the Vanderbilt alum found seven (of 13) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.323 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 1.795 approaching-the-green.
"I kind of knew what was going on without even having to see it", Conners said. I was living minute to minute. "That's probably why I played so good". "I was really patient out there, hit a lot of good tee balls and picked my shots to be aggressive at some pins". "Just go and take advantage of a good break, and I felt really good about my game for the last little while. I think it's exciting to have him back for the casual golf fan, but now the true Tiger fans get excited".
Woods' third round scorecard shows five birdies and just the one bogey, and starting his round with a wayward drive left into the tree line but managing to scramble his way to par ahead of bringing a record crowd to their feet in holing a 20-footer for birdie at the par-4 third hole. Not bad for someone who previously had made just 16 PGA Tour starts and never finished any round better than T-21. But this was the first time he has holed a shot from off the green this year. I figure it will be similar tomorrow.

Spanish LaLiga match report Eibar v Real Madrid 10 March 2018
First Ramos saw his 42nd-minute header fly wide before Dmitrovic made a superb save to tip Ronaldo's deflected shot over his goal. Five minutes into the second half, Ivan Ramis drew level for Eibar with a great header off a corner by Pedro Leon .
"No one has ever had a lower lumbar fusion where I had it and come out here and played". Even Snedeker had a huge grin on his face when the ball vanished into the cup.
Given it is has been over three-years since Woods has been in a position for victory, and given four well-published back operations, Woods was asked what would it mean if he were to win tomorrow. You could hear some roars [from Woods' group].
So he at least knows what to expect. "He's back in action and everyone's rooting for him". Rose shot 5-under 66 with an eagle hole-out from 120 yards at the par-5 11 hole to get into Sunday's final pairing with Conners at 2 p.m. ET.
It was a reminder that an entire generation of golfers - from Jordan Spieth to Jon Rahm to Justin Thomas, and to the great (this week) Corey Conners himself - has come of age not knowing what it feels like to be sucked into the black hole of a Tiger Woods weekend charge, when the rest of the sport's collective gravity is no match for his.
