Preparing for his first PGA Tour event of the 2012 season, Tiger Woods said Tuesday that a poor final round in Abu Dhabi two weeks ago when he had a chance to win has not deterred him and that he is pleased with the state of his game.
Tiger Woods moved to the top of the leaderboard Saturday at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, a position that once was taken for granted but now marks his first third-round lead in an official tournament in more than two years.
Tiger Woods found his putting stroke and put himself in contention at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, shooting 3-under-par 69 Friday to trail unheralded Thorbjorn Olesen by two strokes heading into the weekend.
Robert Karlsson has been eyewitness to some of Tiger's most amazing shots. Although Woods' 1-under 71 on Thursday at Doral wasn't spectacular, the Swede still came away impressed, writes ESPN.com's Bob Harig.
