Tiger Woods at Barclays 2013 Tracker: Day 3 Highlights, Updates and Analysis
On moving day at The Barclays, Tiger Woods kept himself in contention for his sixth tournament title this season.
While he may not have lit the scoreboard on fire like Kevin Chappell, who shot a course record 62, Woods was consistent enough as he shot 69 to keep his name near the top of the leaderboard.
After struggling early on with three bogeys, Woods stormed to eight-under for the tournament on the back nine with birdies on the 13th, 16th, and 18th holes.
One concern for Woods will be his back, which looked like it was bothering him for most of the round.
If he can sink a few more birdie putts and find a way to control the pain in his back, Woods could make a Sunday charge at Liberty National Golf Club.
