Tiger Woods has best two rounds since start of the year, but it's not enough
SAN MARTIN, Calif. (AP) ' Tiger Woods put together back-to-back rounds in the 60s for the first time since his season-opening tournament. It's still not good enough in the Frys.com Open.
Woods pulled within three shots of the lead at one point Saturday at CordeValle. But he made a mess of the par 3s and had to settle for a 3-under 68 that left him in the middle of the pack going into the final round.
The last time Woods broke 70 in consecutive rounds was at Torrey Pines to start the year. He finished poorly and tied for 44th.
This is his first PGA Tour event in seven weeks, and his last official PGA Tour event of the season. Woods saw a few bright spots in his round, but given the glorious conditions, he realized that a 68 was not nearly enough to make up much ground.
