DORAL, Fla. -- Tiger Woods has picked up right where he left off.
After racking up 17 birdies through the first two rounds -- the most in Woods' career through the first 36 holes of a tournament -- he began his third round with three in row.
Woods reached the par-5 first in two and just missed an eagle putt from 12 feet.
On No. 2, he nearly took the putter out of the equation, hitting his approach from 120 yards to inside a foot.
One hole later, Woods rolled in a 10-footer for another birdie.
Woods wasn't the oly one to get off to a hot start.
Graeme McDowell opened eagled No. 1 playing and added a birdie on No. 3 to keep pace and stay within two of Woods.
