WGC-Cadillac Championship 2013 scores: Tiger Woods keeps control of leaderboard

Mike Ehrmann

Woods recovered from a tee shot into a palm tree on the 17th hole to extend his lead over Graeme McDowell at the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

After three rounds at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in Miami, Fla., Tiger Woods is still the tournament leader, although his day wasn't without a little bit of drama. After building a significant lead over Graeme McDowell through the first 15 holes, McDowell bridged the gap with an eagle on the 16th hole and Woods fell back some after his tee shot ended up in a palm tree.

Because Woods was able to see and identify his ball he wasn't forced to take another tee-shot and was instead allowed to declare it as an unplayable lie. Woods recovered well from the unfortunate beginning of the hole, and finished the 17th with a bogey.

Woods entered Saturday with a two-stroke lead over McDowell for the tournament lead and kept the pressure on with three consecutive birdies to begin the third round. His score of 67 was his worst of the tournament so far, but was two strokes better than McDowell, Phil Mickelson and Steve Stricker, who each finished Saturday with scores of 69.

The first group of the day is scheduled to tee off in the final round at 8:30 a.m., while the leaders, Woods and McDowell, are scheduled to tee off on Sunday at 1:45 p.m. The full list of tee times can be found on PGATour.com.
