Tiger off to solid start

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- The good news for Tiger Woods: He has three birdies and no bogeys through his first nine holes here in the third round (click here to track him live).

The bad news: He's still six shots off the pace with the leader yet to tee off.

Still, Woods didn't waste any time making a move.

He birdied the first hole at PGA National, hitting his approach to just inside 6 feet before making the putt. Two holes later, Woods added another birdie, reaching the par-5 third in two before two-putting from 46 feet.

Woods made four straight pars after that, though he didn't have many reasonable looks at birdie either. His only opportunity was on the par-3 fifth, where his 13-footer slid just past the hole.

As well as Woods has scored, he hasn't been entirely accurate, hitting just four of seven fairways and five of nine greens. He also got up and down from the sand three times.
