Chevron World Challenge, Round 3 Leaderboard: Tiger Woods One Over Par Through Nine Holes, Holds One-Shot Lead Over Hunter Mahan

On a windy Saturday at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California, the third round of the 2011 Chevron World Challenge has not seen many low scores, especially among those who teed off later in the day. Tiger Woods began the day with a three-shot lead, but now has a one-shot advantage over Hunter Mahan through nine holes for Woods.

After shooting 33 on the front nine on both Thursday and Friday, Woods shot a one-over 34 through nine holes on Saturday. He birdied the par-four first hole, but bogied the par-five second hole, the same hole Woods birdied on Thursday and eagled on Friday. Woods birdied the fourth hole and bogied the sixth and eighth holes, including a three-putt on the par-three eighth hole.

Mahan had three birdies on the front nine to pull within one of Woods, but he bogied the par-four 10th hole to give one back. The low round of the day so far belongs to Paul Casey of England, at six under par through 15 holes, to bring him to three under for the tournament.

Winds on Saturday in Thousand Oaks have reached 28 mph.

Matt Kuchar and K.J. Choi each began the day tied for second place at five under par, three shots behind Woods, but both have struggled so far in the third round. Both are two over on the day and three under for the tournament.
