Golf: Woods Moves to Even Par at PGA Championship


World number one golfer Tiger Woods of the United States has fired a 4-under-par, 66 in his third round to move to even par 210 for the PGA Championships, the last major tournament of the year.

Woods, who barely made the cut Friday, had five birdies (one stroke under par) and one bogey (one stroke over par) to finish the day at 4-under-par. The score leaves him eight strokes off the lead behind former Masters champion Phil Mickelson of the United States. Mickelson is not due to tee off until 19 hours UTC Saturday.

Woods has won the Masters and the British Open this year and finished second behind New Zealand's Michael Campbell at the U.S. Open. He is attempting to become the first player in history to win three major tournaments in one year for the second time.

To accomplish his goal, Woods has to make history - the largest comeback to win in the PGA Championship is a seven-stroke deficit set by John Mahaffey in 1978.
