Tiger Woods hits bold escape shot attempt at the Valspar Championship

Tiger Woods hits bold escape shot attempt at the Valspar Championship

It ended up just short of the green, Woods followed with a chip shot to three feet that saved par and provided one of the top highlights from the opening round at the Valspar Championship on a blustery Thursday.

Corey Conners continues to play the role of spoiler in Tiger Woods' efforts to get back in the win column for the first time in almost five years as he carded a three-under 68 Saturday to reach nine-under overall in the 2018 Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor, Florida.

PALM HARBOR, Fla. - The idea of an 80th PGA Tour victory for Tiger Woods seemed all but forgotten just a few months ago.

Woods will play in the penultimate group on Sunday alongside Snedeker who also carded a 67 while Rose fired a five-under 66 - highlighted by an eagle at the 11th - to reach eight-under.

Plus, Taylor's sole Pro Bowl appearance came after five quarterbacks decided not to participate in the game. He threw 22 interceptions, tanking an offense that had a good offensive line and decent rushing attack.

Woods was almost as good with his next tee shot, a 5-iron to two feet on the par-3 17th.

Tiger Woods on Saturday generated more clubhead speed than any other measured swing on the PGA Tour this year - 129 miles per hour (207 km per hour) with his drive at the 14th hole.

Woods defied the elements and the difficulty of the Copperhead Course to fire a composed four-birdie 68 early on Friday and move to four under par alongside Paul Casey, Brandt Snedeker and Ryan Palmer.

I wrote in a column back in November of my hope that Derrick Rose would find a way to return to the basketball court, and we'll see what his recent signing with the Minnesota Timberwolves will bring, but along with Woods, I hope it works out for both. "I played myself right there in contention". About the time he was dropping a shot, Conners was across the lake at No. 12 and rolled in a 20-foot birdie putt to stretch his lead to two shots over Rose, three shots over Woods.

But he managed to thread his ball through a narrow gap in the woods and chase it up close to the green, from where he pitched to a couple of feet and tapped in to remain level for the day. "I'm able to play more feel golf than just trying to figure out how to play golf again". "I felt very comfortable out there". I'm getting a little better, piece by piece.

He will play with Woods again in the final round.

"The roars are a little louder, and there's certainly an energy about the gallery that you don't have anywhere else", Jordan Spieth said.

"I came out and tried to have as much fun as possible", he said. I see him do stuff like that; let's you know he's back and enjoying and having fun. "I kind of knew what to expect out there with a lot of people and lot of people watching, but I felt comfortable".
