Tiger Woods survives security guard to remain in Masters contention

Fortunately, Woods seemed to be able to walk it off as he strolled the green.

All of them are major champions. "I wish I only had to worry about him, but there's a few more I think are going to come out tomorrow and try to shoot a low one".

Woods said prior to the tournament that he enjoys wearing them and he's won in them before, so why not bring them back at The Masters.

"The last three majors, I've been right there", Woods said. Koepka has the potential to put himself up in the conversation with Tiger in terms of being a dominant major championship player of his era should he emerge as the victor on Sunday. "And I did turn the corner (with his tee shot), which was great and had 6 iron in there and didn't make birdie there, left it short". Just got to suck it up and just keep going on. "This is the best players in the world on the biggest stage that we all want to be in so badly".

"I feel very good", he said.

But in order to overtake the firepower at the top of the leaderboard, Woods will need to convert some of those putts - he missed five inside of 10 feet.

He didn't show any trouble the rest of the way and didn't find much interest in talking about it after his round except to say "accidents happen" and "it's all good". "This is now three straight majors that I've been in the mix, and so it's good stuff".

Woods' birdie at the 11th - the only one there all day - seemed to spark him, as he then hit his tee shot stiff at the 12th, only to have the horn blow stopping play due to a risky weather situation. But he made it up for them with a couple of long birdie putts, and he had no complaints with his position.

Mickelson stumbled to a 73 but still was only three shots behind.

Cantlay, who began the day nine shots off the lead, moved to within a shot of a group of leaders who had yet to tee off when he finished.

Woods sits one shot adrift after rounds of 70-68, using his ever-present gum as a metronome to guide his steady climb up the standings.

However, Rory McIlroy's slim hopes of completing a career Grand Slam this week looked to be over. He was two-under on his day going to the par-three 12th, where he almost made a hole-in-one and tapped in from five inches for a birdie. He was only seven shots behind, but he had 35 players in front of him.
