Arnold Palmer Invitational 2013 scores: Tiger Woods finishes third round on top

David Cannon

Woods will have to hold off Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler and John Huh, among others, to earn a win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Tiger Woods was the story of the day at the 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational, as his score of 66 moved him to 11 strokes under par and into sole possession of the top spot on the leaderboard.

Woods knocked in five birdies and made up for a bogey on the 13th hole with an eagle on the 16th to supplant Justin Rose and Bill Haas, the leaders following Friday's second round. Rose struggled with four bogeys on the back nine, while Haas finished with double bogeys on both the fifth and 10th holes.

Vijay Singh, the 2007 winner of the tournament, entered the day in a tie with Woods for seventh, but struggled on Saturday. He dropped out of contention with a three-over-par performance that sent him nine strokes off the lead.

Instead, the major challengers Woods will face on Sunday include Rose, Rickie Fowler and John Huh, each of whom are in a three-way tie for second at two strokes behind Woods. Fowler had the best day of the three on Saturday, finishing with six birdies and just one bogey.

Coverage of the final round on Sunday is scheduled to begin on Golf Channel at 12:30 p.m. ET before switching to NBC at 2:30.
