Tiger Woods enters
the final day of 2007 US Open second
After a great game on
Saturday, Tiger Woods will enter the final day of the 2007 US
Open at Oakmont two shots behind the leader Aaron Baddeley.
Woods finished second on the leaderboard of the 2007 US Open
Golf Championship on Saturday with one-under for an overall
4-over par to trail two shots behind the new leader Aaron
Baddeley. Tiger Woods almost became the first to play a
boogey-free round at the 107th U.S. Open. Unfortunately, Woods
bogeyed the 18th to finish with a 1-under 69.
The "Oakmont Monster" has proven to be the perfect golf
course for an event of the magnitude of the 2007 US Open. Though
by nature, the Oakmont is even worse when dry, making the ball
very hard to control and bringing the best out of so many stars,
to the point where the leader in the final day, Aaron Baddeley,
is two over par, and one of the favorites to win the US Open,
Phil Mickelson, couldn't even make the cut.
Skilled Tiger Woods could afford to call
the Oakmont golf course "a fun challenge" after pulling up to
second place from his tie 13th at the start of Round 3. The
second-day leader Angel Cabrera probably have slightly harsher
words for the course, tying for 7th with six over par after
leading with even at the beginning of Round 3.
The top five on the leaderboard after Round 3
of the US Open:
1 Aaron Baddeley +2
2 Tiger Woods +4
T3 Stephen Ames +5
T3 Paul Casey +5
T3 Justin Rose +5
