Tiger Woods has had issues on the weekend at majors recently, but that hasn't been the case early on Saturday as he is now leading the Open Championship at 3-under.
Woods has been sharp thus far, drilling irons off the tees into the middle of the fairway on each of the first three holes. His birdie attempt on No. 1 wasn't on a very good line, but it left him with an easy tap-in par to begin his round. Woods wasn't happy with his approach at No. 2 as the ball kicked left on the green, leaving a 30-foot birdie try. He's putted well this week and that continued on Saturday as he drilled the long birdie try to move to 3-under.
The birdie put Woods into a tie for the lead with Miguel Angel Jimenez, but a missed par putt at No. 2 dropped Jimenez to 2-under and left Woods alone at the top.
While still a challenge, Muirfield is playing slightly easier on Saturday, with a few players going under par in their rounds. Hunger Mahan moved to even par after making the turn at 34 while Phil Mickelson is 1-under on the round and even for the tournament.
