Tiger Woods' “comeback” hit a major snag today as he struggled to a two-over-72 performance at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.

Woods' inability to practice (due to his Achilles injury) proved significant as it took Tiger 11 holes to hit a fairway Saturday.

Tourney leader Adam Scott, who is now employing Woods’ former caddie Stevie Williams, kept his lead for the third consecutive day after posting a four-under-par 66.

Tiger, playing in his first tournament in nearly three months, appeared frustrated at his lack of control.
