Tiger Woods at Masters 2013: Day 3 Score, Highlights and Updates

Will Leivenberg@@will_leivenbergFeatured ColumnistApril 13, 2013

Tiger's third round was a dogged battle back into contention. Woods shot a two-under-par 70, highlighted by his strong back-nine surge where he shot a two-under-par 34, his first round under par on Augusta's second nine in eight rounds.

After two rounds of near error-free golf at the 77th Masters, Tiger Woods suddenly and unexpectedly began his round today amidst a firestorm of controversy. This morning, he was belatedly assessed a two-stroke penalty for taking an illegal drop on Friday at the 15th hole. 

But Woods was resilient and put together the type of round that will place him within the final groups tomorrow, Sunday at the Masters.
