What will get for an encore?
Tiger Woods produced an electric Friday at the Hero World Challenge with a 4-under 68 that put him contention. At times during the second round, he held the outright lead. Woods will look for more glory in his return Saturday at Albany Golf Club.
Our Tiger Tracker will keep track of his entire third round shot-by-shot. Keep up with everything below.
Hole No. 10: Par 4, 435 Yards
OFF THE TEE (2:49 p.m. ET): Tiger goes with what looks like 3-wood off the tee and he finds the fairway. He’s off to a good start on this nine.
APPROACH SHOT (2:52 p.m. ET): He takes 7-iron from 166 yards and it looks like that one landed in the left greenside bunker. If that’s the case, Tiger short sides himself there.
AROUND THE GREEN (2:57 p.m. ET): Tiger actually came up short of the bunker. He had to play a mini-flop shortsided from the rough. It was an uphill lie, so not an impossible shot. Tiger knocks it 10 feet by. That’s left for par.
ON THE GREEN (2:58 p.m. ET): He simply misread that one. The ball slides off to the right at the end and that’s another bogey.
TIGER ON THE DAY: 5 over thru 10 (T-12)
Hole No. 9: Par 5, 603 Yards
OFF THE TEE (2:37 p.m. ET): Tiger does find the fairway here. Remember he made eagle at this hole after doing that yesterday.
APPROACH SHOT (2:40 p.m. ET): From 284 yards … not his best. But it’s a fine miss into the front right greenside bunker. He can get that up and down for birdie.
AROUND THE GREEN (2:41 p.m. ET): And that’s another short-game shot that doesn’t even find the green. Tiger carries this bunker shot 10 feet beyond the pin and it rolls off the back. He’ll have about 30 feet from the fairway for birdie.
ON THE GREEN (2:45 p.m. ET): Tiger cleans up for par, but he goes out in 40 and he’s 10 back.
TIGER ON THE DAY: 4 over thru 9 (12th)
Hole No. 8: Par 3, 203 Yards
OFF THE TEE (2:22 p.m. ET): It. Keeps. Piling. On. This one looked good in the area, but it comes up short and trickles into low area left of the green. The pin is left, so he is short-sided. Another bogey might be imminent.
AROUND THE GREEN (2:26 p.m. ET): That’s another chip that come up short OF THE GREEN. Everything is falling…
