Woods, who just made Friday's cut line on the number at even par, finished three rounds at 5-under-par 205 and currently sits six shots behind overnight leader Rory McIlroy.

Woods opened his day with a 16-foot birdie putt at the first, but later gave that shot back with a 2-putt bogey at the fourth.

He moved back to into red numbers with a 37-foot birdie putt at the fifth and reach 2-under with another lengthy birdie putt at the seventh.

After falling back to 1-under with a bogey at the ninth, Woods birdied the 10th from eight feet before holing his third shot at the par-4 from just off the green to reach 3-under.

He added another set of birdies at the 14th and 15th to move to 5-under and parred his final three holes to remain there.
