Tiger Maintains His Four Shot Lead Heading to Sunday at the Chevron

Tiger shot his third straight round in the 60’s to post (-17) and keep his four shot lead over Graeme McDowell at the Chevron World Challenge.

Looking for his first win of 2010, Woods matched McDowell’s 68 and goes into the final the overwhelming favourite for victory.  The former world #1 made 6 birdies and 2 bogies in what was a solid, but not spectacular round.

As a result, the bookmakers seem almost certain Tiger will hold one for victory and the way he’s playing there’s little reason why one would think he’d let this slip away.  The books send him off at a prohibitive (1-12).

McDowell, meanwhile, will most likely have to go a number of shots lower than the 68 he fired on Sunday if he’s going to take a run at Tiger.

This year’s US Open champion is in line to get another top-3, but at the same time it does appear, barring divine intervention, he’ll miss out on victory.  This is really par for the course for McDowell over the past few weeks as he’s had a number of near misses since his win at the Andalucia Masters.

The front nine has been the tougher of the two sides at Sherwood Country Club making McDowell’s chances of taking a run at Woods even slimmer.

The only way this really becomes a tournament is if Tiger gives a shot or two back early and McDowell makes a few birdies to get close.

The books don’t seem to have given the Northern Irishman much of a chance as he begins the final round at (6-1).

With Tiger eight clear of third place going to the final 18, there’s only more one player on the betting board.

Paul Casey posted a 69 in round three and now faces a severely uphill climb as he attempts to erase the formidable eight shot gap between he and Woods.

There is little realistic chance this is going to happen and it’s no wonder why he goes out at (80-1).
