Tiger Woods at PGA Championship 2013 Tracker: Day 3 Score and Highlights
On a day where Tiger Woods talked about shooting in the mid-60s to get back into contention, his Round 3 reality was a very different story at the PGA Championship.
The world No. 1 fired a 73 at the Oak Hill Country Club to drop to four over par, 13 shots behind the leader heading into the final round.
After an up-and-down round on Friday, Saturday held few highlights for Woods. He made just one birdie, on the 11th hole, against four bogeys on the day.
Tiger's driver let him down in a big way, and he wasn't able to find any sort of stroke to drop the mid-range putts that he needed in order to climb back towards the leaders.
It's now all but assured that 2013 will not be the year that Tiger Woods captures his first major title since 2008.
There was some talk that Tiger looked a bit uncomfortable on the course today, possibly with a tight calf muscle.
He certainly didn't get any mojo going as the round wore on, so we'll have to see if he can come back on Sunday to salvage a respectable performance.
Having never broken par at Oak Hill, perhaps that should be the goal?
Today's stats: 11/18 GIR, 5/14 Fairways (0/4 with driver). Now +4 overall and has yet to break par in seven career rounds at Oak Hill.— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) August 10, 2013
For the first time this week, Tiger makes par on his final hole, but that's scant relief for how the day has gone.
At a time when he needed to move up the leaderboard, Tiger shoots a 73 to move back to four over par. He ends his day tied for 53rd—not the goal on "moving day."
Keegan Bradley birdies the final hole for a 72, three over.
It looks like Tiger will finish at least a shot below, so at least he'll be paired up with a different playing partner for Sunday.
The approach has not been great. Can tiger salvage a decent hole as he wraps up his day?
Tiger takes driver again at 18 but flares it right...more sand. Takes a whack at it but comes up well short of green in right rough.— GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) August 10, 2013
Tiger looks like he'd rather be having lunch with alex Miceli than being on the course at Oak Hill right now.— Doug Ferguson (@dougferguson405) August 10, 2013
Tiger's last drive of the day looks as messy as the others.
He's into the bunker on the left.
Keegan Bradley and Tiger Woods have been swimming in the same soup all week long.
In Tiger-like fashion, Keegan leaves his long birdie putt just to the left at 17. Bradley's three over on the day, with one birdie and four bogeys.
Close to Tiger's shot, the crowd gave Tiger lots of encouragement as he lifted it high.
Too bad the ball landed in the first bunker. He's still at least 60 yards out.
This time, Tiger's long putt attempt was to save par.
That didn't fall either. Tiger logs his third bogey of the day on 16.
Through 16 holes, Tiger Woods is two over on the day, and drops to +3 overall.
The 16th is supposed to be the last of the 'easy' holes on the course, but Tiger's second shot goes in the bunker to the right of the green.

The videos of Tiger's putts today could be shuffled and we'd barely know the difference.
The 15th sees another long, good approach that gives some hope, then rolls just wide.
After 15 holes, Tiger Woods holds steady at one over on the day, two over in total. Jason Dufner still holds top spot on the leaderboard at -9.
