Chevron World Challenge 2011 Leaderboard: Zach Johnson Eagles 18 To Grab Third-Round Lead Over Tiger Woods

Zach Johnson hit a seven-iron approach shot into the hole to cap a four-under 68 on Saturday at the 2011 Chevron World Challenge at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California. Johnson's eagle on 18 put him at eight under par for the tournament and gave him one-stroke lead over Tiger Woods after three rounds. Woods shot a one-over 73 on Saturday.

Johnson parred each of the first 10 holes before shooting an eagle on the par-five 11th hole. He birdied the next two holes to briefly catch Woods, but bogeys on the 16th and 17th holes set him back before his heroics on 18.

It was an up and down day for Woods, who had three different bogeys on par fives, a rarity for him. Woods was eight under par on par-five holes through the first two rounds, but was plus three on the par fives on Saturday. The last win for Tiger Woods came over two years ago, at the Australian Masters in November 2009.
