Tiger Woods hit a tee shot that got stuck in a palm tree.That’s about the only thing that didn’t fall his way Saturday in the Cadillac Championship in Doral, Fla.Woods made seven more birdies on the Blue Monster, the last one from 15 feet on the 18th hole that gave him a 5-under 67 and a four-shot lead over Graeme McDowell heading into the final round.Woods has made 24 birdies and taken only 74 putts through three rounds, both personal bests in his PGA Tour career.It put him in great position to win his 17th career World Golf Championship, and his first since 2009.He has a 39-2 record when he has the outright lead going into the final round on the PGA Tour. The only time he has ever lost a lead of more than two shots was in 2010 against an 18-man field at the Chevron World Challenge, when McDowell beat him in a playoff.“After I made birdie on 15, I was looking pretty good with a six-shot lead, and with a drivable par 4,” Woods said. “Two holes later, it’s now cut down to three. I piped a tee shot down there, hit a little 9-iron there and was able to pour that putt in there.”Briefly • Puerto Rico Open: Fabian Gomez of Argentina ran off six birdies on the front nine that sent him to a 7-under 65 that gave him a share of the lead with Scott Brown going into the final round of the Puerto Rico Open. • Web.com: Kevin Kisner shot a course-record 11-under 61 and is tied with Benjamin Alvarado and Edward Loar at 199 following three rounds of the Chile Classic in Santiago.
