Chevron World Challenge 2011 Leaderboard Update: Tiger Woods Struggles, In Second

Tiger Woods is still right in the thick of things after three rounds at the Chevron World Challenge, but a tough round on Saturday has him in second-place. Woods held a three-shot advantage heading into the third round, thanks to a solid first round and a strong second round. But Woods struggled on Saturday, finishing his round over par and falling back one spot on the leaderboard.

Zach Johnson carded a 4-under 68 on Saturday to vault into the lead, lowering his score to 8-under for the tournament. Woods was 1-over for the day and is one shot back of Johnson at 7-under for the tournament. K.J. Choi has yet to card a round under par since taking the lead into the clubhouse after the first round, but is three shots back at 5-under for the tournament. Three other players are bunched up at 3-under par.

Chevron World Challenge 2011: Tiger Woods Still Leads Midway Through Third Round

Tiger Woods seems to be finding his groove at the 2011 Chevron World Challenge taking place in Thousand Oaks, Calif., this week. Woods hasn't won a PGA tournament since 2009, but the former top-ranked golfer in the world is sitting atop the leaderboard midway through the third round of this week's challenge.

Woods finished with a 69 in the first round and followed that up by shooting a 67 in the second round on Friday, leading to his being eight strokes below par heading in Saturday's third round. Woods hasn't been quite as impressive as he was during the first two rounds as he's shooting one-over on Day 3, but it's still good enough to give him a one-stroke lead.

Tiger's closest competition is fellow American Hunter Mahan, who sits at six-under through nine holes on Saturday. Mahan took second in a playoff at this year's Tour Championship.

Chevron World Challenge 2011: K.J. Choi In Lead, Tiger Woods Tied For Second After First Round

K.J. Choi fired a six-under 66 in windy conditions Thursday to take the first-round lead at the Chevron World Challenge.

Tournament host Tiger Woods gutted out a three-under 69 and shares second place with his playing partner on Thursday, Steve Stricker, at Sherwood Country Club.

Wind gusts were expected close to 50 mph on Thursday. They never got that high, but when the last group teed off, wind was a substantial factor.

For example, Stricker lined up a 30-foot birdie putt on the final hole to get a share of second place. He stepped off when the wind carried a candy wrapper into his site line.

Stricker made the putt to join Woods in second.

Woods almost missed his own event. He was 49th in the world rankings when the qualification period ended, so he got in and didn't have to use an exemption on himself and possibly cost the tournament its world-ranking points.
