Tiger Woods with 3-shot lead and 1 round away from winning

Tiger Woods with 3-shot lead and 1 round away from winning

Woods, a two-time victor of the tournament, carded six birdies in his opening seven holes during his third round, opening up a five-shot lead at one stage.

Ryder Cup hostilities broke out a week early at the Tour Championship on Friday with Tiger Woods and world number one Justin Rose sharing the halfway lead after a pulsating second round in Atlanta.

Rose, in his debut at No. 1 in the world, played in the group ahead of Woods and could hear all about it with an enormous gallery right behind him. He also lost a two-shot lead to Lee Westwood in Germany at a European Tour event in 2000.

Web.com - Former US Open champion Lucas Glover shot his second consecutive 7-under 64 to take a one-shot lead at the Web.com Tour Championship in Atlantic Beach, Fla. Woods has been money with third-round leads, especially of 3 shots or more. We've seen glimpses of vintage Woods, but he hasn't put together a comprehensive performance until now.

However, Woods now holds a four-stroke lead over McIlroy and Rose, and considering he is second on the PGA Tour in third round scoring ... things are looking good for the only man to have won multiple FedExCup titles.

Rose will be playing not only for the victory but also the FedExCup, which is worth $10m to the victor of the season-long PGA Tour points race. "I was hitting it absolutely dead flush".

Ronaldo was left in tears after the decision and nearly every Juventus player since then has come out to support their teammate. This would have ruled him out of Juventus' visit to Ronaldo's former club Manchester United on matchday 3.

"I think the best form of defense is to play aggressively tomorrow, to come out and try and - yeah, play this golf course as I want to play this golf course, which is positively - it's about being committed", Rose said.

Woods' last victory was capturing the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Barring a collapse, Rose seems certain to win the FedEx Cup even if he doesn't catch up to Woods (Woods needs Rose to finish tied for fifth or worse to win the cup).

Woods has gone more than five years without winning. "All I can do is worry about myself", said McIlroy. He's 42-for-44 when going into the final round with the outright lead and the last time he blew a 54-hole lead was at the 2009 PGA Championship. I always feel I start the year a little bit behind everyone else because I have to go over to Europe.

"Simple math says that if I play a clean card, the guys behind me have to shoot 67 to force it into extra", Woods said after his round, when asked about the mental advantage of this rare late lead.

"The crowds were electric because of it, " Rose said. Woods has had multiple chances this season to complete the comeback and he's come up short each time. "I'm certainly much more equipped than I was in March because of what I've gone through".
