Tiger Woods in striking distance of his first major title in 10 years
It’s been a decade since Tiger Woods won a major title — the 2008 U.S. Open — but that dry spell could very well come to an end on Sunday.
Playing in The Open Championship for the first time since 2015, Woods carded a 5-under 66 on Saturday, briefly topping the leaderboard and setting himself up for a run at the trophy.
“It would be … better on Sunday,” Woods said via the AP. “But I’m right there.
“It’s been a few years since I’ve felt like this.”
It was the first time Woods led or held a share of the lead in a major since the 2012 U.S. PGA Championship, and his lowest round in a major since 2011 Masters.
The 14-time major champion will don his signature red on Sunday when he tees off and attempts to legitimize his comeback and cement his legacy.
