Round three leaderboard
Woods, who won this tournament in 2001 and 2013, was eight under after 12 holes of his third round but a bogey on the 14th checked his progress and he finished with four pars."I hit a lot of good shots and it was nice to see some go in," said the 14-time major champion."I got off to a much better quality start. To be eight under through 12, realistically I could have got a couple more out of it and got to 10 for the day, but I will take it."Spieth, who had made the cut at the Players for the first time since 2014, one-putted seven times on the back nine, holing six birdies putts - and he holed 17 out of 17 putts from 10 feet or closer."If you don't miss a putt inside of 15 feet, golf is pretty easy," said the American."I felt free. I came out feeling good and playing aggressively. When you are 14 back on a Saturday morning, there's not a whole lot of pressure."
