Just another routine Tiger round
He opens with a double bogey, struggles with both his driver and his knee all day, but somehow, some way, Tiger Woods leads after three rounds of the 2008 U.S. Open. Two eagles on the back nine, including an improbable 80-foot, double breaker putt on 13, propelled Woods to 3 under for the tournament, leaving him 18 holes from his 14th major t itle. Standing in his way are Lee Westwood, who has struggled for several years but is now on the comeback trail, and Rocco Mediate, who at 45 is the sentimental choice but probably lacks to fire power to stay with the two young guns.
