It was gross – Tiger Woods reflects on wild driving display

Tiger Woods described his performance as "gross" after the 14-time major champion struggled from the tee on day three of the Farmers Insurance Open.

Woods endured a woeful driving display but overcame his problems to card his best round of the tournament so far – a 70 to be three under and eight shots off the pace at Torrey Pines on Saturday. The former world number one, who has recovered from back issues to make his first official PGA Tour appearance since last year's event, only hit three fairways and nine greens over 18 holes as Alex Noren took a one-stroke lead. Speaking afterwards, Woods – who was rescued by his putter – was honest in his assessment of his penultimate round in San Diego, California.
