2012 Masters Update: Tiger Woods Attempting To Battle Back; Birdies Third, Fourth

The PGA's most popular golfer, Tiger Woods, had a rough outing on Friday as he shot a 75 and after his even score on Thursday's first round, he found himself at 3-over par and eight strokes behind leaders Fred Couples and Jason Dufner, who are at 5-under.

After parring the first two holes in Saturday's third round, Woods began his attempt to battle back by birdieing the third hole, shooting a three on the par-four third hole and then birdieing the par-three fourth hole. Woods is now just 1-over par and he has more than enough holes left to put himself in great position heading into the fourth and final round. They don't call Saturday moving day for nothing.
