2013 Barclays leaderboard: 3 share lead while Tiger Woods struggles early

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The front nine wasn't too kind to Tiger on Saturday, but he made do.

Tiger Woods made three bogeys before the turn Saturday at The Barclays, falling to 5-under and five shots behind co-leaders Matt Kuchar, Rickie Fowler and Gary Woodland.

Kuchar began the third round at 11-under, good for a two-stroke lead over Webb Simpson and Woodland. Kuchar, however, bogeyed the par-4 third hole, dropping him into a tie with Simpson after Simpson birdied the first hole.

Fowler birdied his first hole Saturday before an eagle at No. 6 launched him into a tie for the lead.

Woods had only bogeyed three holes out of his first 36 at Liberty National Golf Club, and all three of those came in his 2-under round of 69 on Friday. But where he made up shots Friday, he hadn't yet in the third round. He bogeyed No. 3 on Saturday, which was a birdie Friday. He also took a bogey at the par-3 fourth hole, which he birdied Thursday and made par on Friday.

He got up-and-down out of a green-side bunker to make birdie at the par-5 eighth hole.

Simpson, Charl Schwarzel and Kevin Chappell are each one stroke back at 9-under.
