Tiger hoping to make history
Tiger Woods insists he is still in with a chance of winning the US Open despite falling behind in the third round on Saturday.
The 14-time major champion started the day in the lead but struggled off the tee and eventually finished with a five-over par 75.
His score puts him at four-over for the tournament, five adrift of co-leaders Graeme McDowell and Jim Furyk, heading into what promises to be another unpredictable day at the Olympic Club.
Despite his formidable record, Woods has never won a major when trailing after 54 holes and, although he understands the enormity of the task, he says he's confident he can still win the tournament.
"I'm definitely still in the ball game. I'm only five back and that's certainly doable on this golf course for sure," Woods said.
"It's just patience. It's just a few birdies here and there. It's not like where you have to go out there and shoot 62 and 63. This is a US Open. You just need to hang around."
