Tiger Woods had back-to-back rounds in the 60s for the first time since his season-opening tournament at the Frys.com Open on Saturday.
Woods pulled within three shots of the lead at one point Saturday at CordeValle. But he made a mess of the par 3s and had to settle for a 3-under 68 to sit middle of the pack going into the final round.
