Greenbrier Classic Sunday Tee times, pairings: Tiger Woods goes out early in West Virginia

Tiger Woods has looked like a real, competitive golfer this week at the Greenbrier, but Saturday's round dropped him deep down the leaderboard and out of contention.

Before his tournament started at the Greenbrier Classic, Tiger Woods assessed the West Virginia setup and said anyone with designs on contending would have to "keep the pedal down" to stay in it. The Old White TPC course at this resort is one of the easiest on the PGA Tour and birdies are available on almost every hole. It's not uncommon to see a player make a run at breaking 60 here annually.

Well, Tiger let his foot off the pedal on Saturday and now he's got an early final round tee time. Woods caught a tougher end of the draw on Friday, when he shot a 1-under 69. The course was waterlogged at that point. Normally, wet and soft conditions are preferable for these pros to stuff it close and tap in birdies. But that late in the day and with 150 players still trampling all over the greens before the cut, it was the most difficult scoring circumstances of the week. Tiger, however, still got into the clubhouse under par and with a reasonable chance at contending throughout the holiday weekend.

Saturday was a step back for Woods. He came into the house with a 2-over back nine 38, and that dropped him down the board into a tie for 47th place. At one point in his round, he hovered just outside the top 10. But an over-par stretch at this venue will bounce you out of contention real quick, and we saw that on Saturday as Tiger gave shots back to the field while others, like Jason Bohn, moved 60 spots up with a 9-under 61. Most of the damage was done at the 11th, where Tiger bombed one out of bounds and made a double bogey. That largely wiped out his shot at making a run inside the top 10, and his remaining seven holes did nothing to mitigate the damage.

Tiger will now play out the final 18 with Sangmoon Bae at 9:40 a.m. ET. He could technically chase down the current leading number (11-under) with a low round on a gettable course. But there are too many players ahead of him and too many congested up there on the lead for Woods to have a realistic chance at contending. So he'll play out the string, trying to keep it in the fairway and finish a week of improvement with another steady round before he heads to St. Andrews and the Open Championship.
