Shot-by-shot recap of Tiger Woods' third-round 71 at Torrey Pines

By

Tiger Woods didn’t do a whole lot for a third straight day.

It was a 1-under 71 at Torrey Pines’ South Course in Saturday’s third round at the Farmers Insurance Open. That put him at 5 under overall and he’s just T-48 and 14 off the lead.

Woods will not be winning his 2019 opener.

Regardless, we followed his third round shot by shot. Catch up below…

Hole No. 9: Par 5, 615 yards

OFF THE TEE (3:45 p.m. ET): Tiger fires a drive down the left side of the fairway here. That one is long, so despite how long this hole is, he’ll be able to hit a wood second shot and have a chance to reach this green.

APPROACH SHOT (3:54 p.m. ET): This second shot comes up short and right in a greenside bunker. That will leave TW a tough 30-yard bunker shot for his third. But an up and down means a sub-par round.

AROUND THE GREEN (3:59 p.m. ET): Tiger carries this to the hole and left and it spins and stops about 10 feet left of the cup. Good shot and good chance at a closing birdie.

ON THE GREEN (4:04 p.m. ET): A birdie-birdie finish. That means a third straight sub-par round. But he finishes the day where he started (T-48) and is 14 off the lead.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1-under 71 (5 under overall, T-48)

Hole No. 8: Par 3, 179 yards

OFF THE TEE (3:33 p.m. ET): He fires this tee shot in about 10 feet right of the cup. That leaves a good birdie look.

ON THE GREEN (3:37 p.m. ET): He buries it! A nice birdie there and his closing hole is a par 5. So he could at least salvage a sub-par round here.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even par thru 17 (4 under overall, T-57)

Hole No. 7: Par 4, 463 yards

OFF THE TEE (3:17 p.m. ET): Tiger fires a drive down the right side of the fairway. He should have about 150 yards in for his approach. A green-lighter here.

APPROACH SHOT (3:23 p.m. ET): This approach is just so-so. The ball finishes a good 30 feet below the hole. This will most likely be a two-putt par.

ON THE GREEN (3:30 p.m. ET): He lags this putt to 2 feet and taps the remainder in for par. This has been quite the mediocre round.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 16 (3 under overall, T-65)

Hole No. 6: Par 5, 557 yards

OFF THE TEE (2:58 p.m. ET): Tiger loses this one left into a fairway bunker. It will be a lay up from here.

APPROACH SHOT (3:03 p.m. ET): He does actually go for this green in two from the bunker from 280 yards out. But the ball comes up short and right in the rough. He’ll have about a 30-yard pitch from the rough and a weird angle and somewhat short-sided here.

AROUND THE GREEN (3:10 p.m. ET): Tiger pitches to 15 feet, so he’ll have that for a birdie at this par 5.

ON THE GREEN (3:12 p.m. ET): No birdie here for Tiger. It’s a simple par, though.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 15 (3 under overall, T-64)

Hole No. 5: Par 4, 450 yards

OFF THE TEE (2:43 p.m. ET): Tiger finds the left side of the fairway here. All good.

APPROACH SHOT (2:48 p.m. ET): This is a nice approach after a good kick, as this ball finishes 12 feet from the cup.

ON THE GREEN (2:52 p.m. ET): BOOM! got it. That’s a needed birdie to potentially get him to a solid score.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 14 (3 under overall, T-60)

Hole No. 4: Par 4, 490 yards

OFF THE TEE (2:25 p.m. ET): A driver down the left side of the fairway here. This is not a good round going, but that’s at least a nice shot there.

APPROACH SHOT (2:29 p.m. ET): This approach is just meh, as the ball finishes a good 40 feet below the cup. He’ll just be looking for a two-putt par from there.

ON THE GREEN (2:37 p.m. ET): Tiger does get a nice two-putt here. So that’s a simple par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over thru 13 (2 under overall, T-68)

Hole No. 3: Par 3, 140 yards

OFF THE TEE (2:14 p.m. ET): Tiger knocks this 25 feet past the cup. Should be a two-putt par.

ON THE GREEN (2:20 p.m. ET): He runs this one 4 feet by and misses the comebacker. That was a really bad bogey right there. This has been a rough round to watch.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over thru 12 (2 under overall, T-71)

Hole No. 2: Par 4, 382 yards

OFF THE TEE (2 p.m. ET): Tiger misses left and is in the rough. Not great.

APPROACH SHOT (2:03 p.m. ET): Tiger does well here, hitting this to about 20 feet under the cup.

ON THE GREEN (2:06 p.m. ET): This putt just misses. It will be an easy par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 11 (3 under overall, T-65)

Hole No. 1: Par 4, 435 yards

OFF THE TEE (1:41 p.m. ET): This drive just catches the left intermediate, but that still means a short iron in from what should be a good lie.

APPROACH SHOT (1:46 p.m. ET): Yikes, pulled into the left greenside bunker. No good.

AROUND THE GREEN (1:50 p.m. ET): Tiger knocks this one about 8 feet by the cup. That left for par.

ON THE GREEN (1:53 p.m. ET): Another lip out. Wow. That’s a brutal bogey.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 10 (3 under overall, T-63)

Hole No. 18: Par 5, 546 yards

OFF THE TEE (1:21 p.m. ET): And that is fairway bunker off the tee. He will have to lay up.

APPROACH SHOT (1:25 p.m. ET): Tiger indeed blasts out into the fairway into wedge third range.

APPROACH SHOT (1:29 p.m. ET): This is only OK from 94 yards as Tiger leaves himself 15-18 feet for birdie.

ON THE GREEN (1:34 p.m. ET): No dice. Simple two-putt par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even par thru 9 (4 under overall, T-53)

OFF THE TEE (1:05 p.m. ET): Tiger takes 3-wood and this is a nice one down the fairway.

APPROACH SHOT (1:11 p.m. ET): Tiger stuffs his approach to 5 feet here. That’s a great birdie look upcoming.

ON THE GREEN (1:17 p.m. ET): He’s got it! Finally his first birdie of the day. Barring an unbelievable final 10 holes, he will still enter Sunday out of contention. But it’s nice to get on the board.

TIGER ON THE DAY: Even par thru 8 (4 under overall, T-56)

Hole No. 16: Par 3, 191 yards

OFF THE TEE (12:56 p.m. ET): This is nice, as Tiger knocks this one to 15 feet. That will leave a nice birdie look.

ON THE GREEN (1:02 p.m. ET): And that one was hit too hard and didn’t have a chance. Another par on a day he desperately needs birdies.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 7 (3 under overall, T-61)

Hole No. 15: Par 4, 483 yards

OFF THE TEE (12:39 p.m. ET): Pounds driver here, and this one is in the fairway.

APPROACH SHOT (12:45 p.m. ET): This one is just OK as it reaches the back fringe. Probably some 30 feet for birdie.

ON THE GREEN (12:50 p.m. ET): Tiger cozies this up to two feet. That’s an easy par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 6 (3 under overall, T-61)

Hole No. 14: Par 4, 426 yards

OFF THE TEE (12:23 p.m. ET): Tiger finds the fairway here. No problems.

APPROACH SHOT (12:27 p.m. ET): Pretty solid approach here to 20 feet under the hole. A decent birdie look.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 5 (3 under overall, T-61)

Hole No. 13: Par 5, 531 yards

OFF THE TEE (12 p.m. ET): Tiger finds the right side of the fairway here. He’ll be able to go for this one in two.

APPROACH SHOT (12:13 p.m. ET): Wow, that is way right. Flails it way right out there, he may be in trouble.

AROUND THE GREEN (12;16 p.m. ET): Tiger had to take a free drop and he hit a high flop that runs to about 20 feet from the cup. That left for birdie.

ON THE GREEN (12:20 p.m. ET): Damn, lip out. That’s a par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 4 (3 under overall, T-59)

Hole No. 12: Par 4, 507 yards

OFF THE TEE (11:42 a.m. ET): Tiger takes driver here and this is a beauty down the left-center of the fairway. Perfect.

APPROACH SHOT (11:47 a.m. ET): Tiger does find the green on this approach but he left himself a long putt. His ball ends up short of a ridge and he’ll have about 50 feet for birdie.

ON THE GREEN (11:55 a.m. ET): A nice lag here, as Tiger gets this long putt to finish about 2 feet from the cup. He cleans that remainder up for par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 3 (3 under overall, T-59)

Hole No. 11: Par 3, 213 yards

OFF THE TEE (11:29 a.m. ET): Another miss, meaning he will be scrambling again. This one is to the left an in a greenside bunker.

AROUND THE GREEN (11:37 a.m. ET): OK, that is more like it. That is a beautiful bunker shot that finishes inside 3 feet from the cup. He should roll that right in for par.

ON THE GREEN (11:40 a.m. ET): Yes, he drains this no problem. Important par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 2 (3 under overall, T-61)

Hole No. 10: Par 4, 421 yards

OFF THE TEE (11:12 a.m. ET): Tiger takes a fairway wood off this tee and finds the fairway. The ball didn’t go very far, but he’s in the short grass.

APPROACH SHOT (11:17 a.m. ET): Tiger’s approach from roughly 200 yards misses to the right. He’ll be chipping from the rough over there.

AROUND THE GREEN (11:21 a.m. ET): Tiger’s chip here goes about 10 feet past. He was somewhat short-sided, so that shot is actually decent. Still, some work to do for par.

ON THE GREEN (11:24 a.m. ET): Nope. That putt misses and this is a two-putt bogey.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over thru 1 (3 under overall, T-61)
