Tiger Woods grabs share of the early lead with 3-under 68 at Valspar Championship

Tiger Woods Tied for Lead at Valspar Championship

However, many need to be excited by the fact that a Canadian golfer that nobody had heard of prior to this weekend is battling the great Tiger Woods in a PGA event.

Woods, who opened 70-68 and rolled in five birdies against one bogey on Saturday, will continue to play with Snedeker in the second-to-last group Sunday.

"I keep getting a little bit better here and there, making these little subtle tweaks", said Woods, who was sidelined for all of 2016 before an abortive comeback bid a year ago.

With a raucous crowd following the 14-time major victor just up ahead of him, Conners did well to keep his cool, saving par from the bunker on the 17th to keep hold of the lead. Eight-deep back there. It was a view that certainly wouldnt have been the same had he not been playing.

Back-to-back bogeys from the sixth cut Conners' advantage to one, as Woods posted gains at the third and seventh and pitched in from the rough at the ninth to reach the turn in a share of the lead. Looking forward it. I was smiling a lot out there. He's on the leaderboard and challenging for the lead.

"He's a huge draw and he plays good this week and the excitement going into the Masters is going to be massive because I don't know if any of us were really thinking he was a true favorite there and he might be after one more round of golf", Adam Scott said.

The moment Tiger Woods got his name back at the top of the leaderboard.

"It feels good to be up here", Woods, who has not won since 2013, told reporters. "I've played myself right there in contention". "I tried to get relaxed as early as possible and fortunately got off to a good start and kind of settled me down nicely".

He added that while there was a host of players in with a chance of victory on Sunday, he was happy to be in the mix. “I was kind of getting a little frustrated, seeing the scores were decent. I made that one.

Tiger Woods watches his birdie putt on the third hole during the third round of the Valspar Championship golf tournament Saturday, March 10, 2018, in Palm Harbor, Fla. I needed something to happen. "That was nice. It was nice to get the momentum, keep the momentum going". "As I was walking off nine it showed 68 and that was at four (under)".

Snedeker, coming off a sternum injury that knocked him out of golf for the second half of past year, was equally impressive as the guy in his group everyone came to see. He'll be paired with Woods again on Sunday in the second-to-last twosome. This will be the fifth time Snedeker has played with Woods this year.

"We've been hearing it all week", Rose said.
