Conners was only five years old when Woods won the Masters for the first time, and the opportunity to once again play in the final group just behind him had Conners shaking his head.

The 14-time Major victor then went into a share of the lead with a birdie at the par-5 fifth hole before the highlight of his round when he chipped-in from some 30-feet behind the flag at the uphill par-4 ninth hole, and with the third birdie of his round momentarily taking Woods into the lead.

Woods will play in the penultimate group on Sunday alongside Snedeker who also carded a 67 while Rose fired a five-under 66 - highlighted by an eagle at the 11th - to reach eight-under.

This Topic is Missing Your Voice.
. It's so loud and overpowering, a true mob just trying to get close to Woods for the same reasons all people want to be close to anyone who makes them feel good or experience something that makes them feel like they matter.

Woods returned to the PGA Tour in January, finishing equal 23rd at Torrey Pines in San Diego. I'm excited. I've been ready to go. He said his doctors had not given him clearance to hit balls.

It is hard to overstate the depths from which Woods has recently climbed, from the back surgeries to the tabloid scandals to the DUI arrest just 10 months ago, when he was found to have had five different prescription drugs in his system.

"I got into the field late, and kind of came in here with nothing to lose", he said.


"I don't think this will be leading, but at least I'm there with a chance going into the weekend", Woods said.

His second shot bounced through the green and left him with a tricky downhill pitch - but Woods was ideal with his third shot. I needed something to happen.

"That was sweet", Woods said.

"It's something that I just find really cool", Conners said with a smile.

Mar 10, 2018; Palm Harbor, FL, USA; Tiger Woods tees off on the 17th during the third round of the Valspar Championship golf tournament at Innisbrook Resort - Copperhead Course.

Tiger Woods has played consistently well for seven consecutive rounds. Then he holed a chip shot from over the ninth green for a birdie that brought him into a tie and electrified the crowd. I see him do stuff like that; let's you know he's back and enjoying and having fun.

One of the most impressive aspects of Woods' return has been his short game. "That was nice. It was nice to get the momentum, keep the momentum going".
