|Tiger Woods and Anthony Kim Together for the First Time|
BETHESDA, Md. - Tiger Woods and Anthony Kim will be in the last group - and be paired together for the first time - when they go head-to-head Sunday, tied for the lead after 54 holes of the $6 million AT&T National at Congressional Country Club.
Kim fired a 2-under 68 in Saturday's third round while Woods struggled to figure out the swirling winds and wound up with a 70. Kim, the defending champion, and Woods, the tournament host, are even at 10-under 200 with one round to play.
"As we all know, AK can play," Woods said. "As time has gone on, we've seen the talent, we've seen him grow as a player, and it's just a matter of time until he stars winning golf tournaments."
Woods and Kim are being chased by a group of 10 players who are all within four shots of them: Michael Allen, Cameron Beckman, Jim Furyk, Rodney Pampling, Lucas Glover, Ryuji Imada, Cliff Kresge, Ryan Moore, Danny Lee and Bryce Molder. Allen moved into contention with the best round of the day, a 5-under 65.
Kim said he's looking forward to the challenge of playing with Woods in the last group.
"I'm excited for the opportunity," he said. "There's not too many chances you get to play against the best golfer in the world at his tournament. I've won this tournament before and I don't see why I won't have a good opportunity Sunday."
