THOUSAND OAKS, CALIF. (AP) - Tiger Woods birdied two of his last three holes to salvage an even-par 72 in the wind and keep his two-shot lead over Zach Johnson in the World Challenge on Saturday.
The score looked routine. The third round was not.
Wind that pushed away some light rain at the start of the round created havoc in the foothills of Sherwood Country Club. Woods hit a tee shot in the water and three-putted from about 6 feet on a par 5. But he finished strong and was at 11-under 205.
Johnson also finished with two birdies, including a 20-footer on the 18th for a 72.
Bubba Watson three-putted the 18th for a 69 and was four shots behind. No one else was closer than six shots of Woods.
NEDBANK GOLF CHALLENGE
SUN CITY, South Africa (AP) _ Jamie Donaldson maintained his three-shot lead through the third round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge, putting the Welshman in sight of his biggest career payday in his Sun City debut.
Sweden’s Henrik Stenson, playing for the first time since ending last season with the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup and European Tour’s Race to Dubai titles, was five strokes back along with Spain’s Sergio Garcia and Thailand’s Thongchai Jaidee. Stenson had a 69, and Garcia and Jaidee shot 66.
The European Tour is sanctioning the event for the first time.
HONG KONG OPEN
HONG KONG (AP) _ Wales’ Stuart Manley moved into position for his first European Tour title, shooting a 4-under 66 to take the third-round lead in the Hong Kong Open.
Manley had a 10-under 200 total in the event also sanctioned by the Asian Tour.
Australia’s Wade Ormsby and India’s Shiv Kapur shot 66 to pull within a stroke.
