Tiger Woods Birdies Back-To-Back Holes, Moves To 1-Over

The third round of the 2011 Masters in Augusta is underway. Entering Saturday's play, Tiger Woods was sitting at 3-over and far behind the leaders as a result of his five bogeys on Friday. So far, Saturday's play is going much better for Woods, who is in pursuit of his fifth green jacket and Masters win.

Woods shot an even par on his first two holes before hitting birdies on holes three and four, which are a par-4 and par-5, respectively. The strong start brings him down to 1-over and gets him started on the right foot.

Many golfers in this year's event, however, have seen strong starts go down the drain in short order. Woods himself began Friday's play with birdies on two of his first three holes before his five bogeys.
