PGA Championship Leaderboard 2012: Tiger Woods Will Make Strong 4th-Round Run
Tiger Woods caught a break with the storm at Kiawah Island on Saturday night, and he will take advantage of that break. Whether he catches Rory McIlroy remains to be seen, but I believe Woods will shoot a below-par score in Round 4.
McIlroy is currently the leader at seven-under after a masterful 67 on Saturday and continued on Sunday.
Before Saturday's slip-ups, Tiger was playing as well as anyone. He came into the day tied for the lead, and it looked as if he would be in the top five through Sunday. But things didn't quite work out that way.
Tiger showed signs of a resurgence on Sunday morning when play resumed. He had three birdies on the back nine, and he shot one-under through the final 11 holes of Round 3.
Tiger must use that momentum to vault himself back into serious contention. He's only five shots behind Rory McIlroy at this point, and we all know McIlroy is not impervious to giving ground. If McIlroy has another round like the one he had on Friday, when he shot a 75, he'll open the door.
If Tiger can do his job and shoot a solid final-round score, he'll be in position to make the conclusion of the PGA Championship very interesting.
