Tiger Woods Near Top Of Leaderboard At Dubai Desert Classic

After Round 3 of the Dubai Desert Classic, Tiger Woods is within one stroke of the tournament lead. In typical Tiger fashion, he cobbled together an up-and-down day to finish the round at par.

Woods, a noted golf enthusiast, suffered a double bogey on the ninth hole, but immediately answered with an eagle on the 10th. In all, he responded to an awful, 4-over front nine with a 4-under back nine. Woods is looking to win his first golf tournament of any sort since November of 2009, when he won the Australian Masters. Entering the final round of play, Woods sits at 7-under for the tournament.

Tied for first on the leaderboard are Rory McIlroy, Anders Hansen, and Thomas Aiken, who each stand at 8-under for the tournament. Alvaro Velasco finds himself at 7-under after shooting a 65 in Round 3, having climbed 54 spots up the leaderboard.
