He had a one-shot lead with four holes to play in 2015 when he had consecutive three-putts - one for bogey, another for par - and Matt Every beat him with an 18-foot birdie on the last hole. There's also a host of upper echelon players between Tiger and the Iceman, including Rory McIlroy, Bryson DeChambeau, Rickie Fowler, and Justin Rose, among others.

Four-time major champion McIlroy, who needs only a Masters green jacket to complete a career Grand Slam, birdied two of the last three holes to fire 67.

For the second Sunday in a row, Tiger Woods is back in the spotlight with a late final round tee time. McIlroy shot 5-under 67 Saturday and made eagle at the par-5 12.

Woods is an outside chance at a ninth Palmer title, clawing his way back with a 69 elevating him to seven under.

"Unfortunately, just didn't go my way today", he said.

The par streak was extended to 13 holes before Stenson found his range on the greens to birdie the fifth, sixth and seventh to maintain his bid for a first win of the season. He was seven shots back. "But tomorrow there's one more day, one back, got a lot of guys behind me that are lurking".

Woods added a few electric moments to his personal highlight reel Saturday.

Following a tie for second at last week's Valspar Championship, four-time Masters victor Woods has ascended to outright betting favourite for Augusta National.

A month ago, McIlroy suggested that the commotion that surrounds a group following Tiger Woods cost the 14-time major champion half a shot per round.

"It was more of a psychology lesson than anything else", McIlroy said of his meeting with Faxon. With his ball plugged near the side of the slip, he swung a little harder to make sure the shaft didn't get stuck banging into the side of the turf and holed a 20-foot par putt.

"And then I moved here in '96 and he invited me over here to play in his Monday shootout, and I did and I didn't like it very much because he took my money", Woods said. "I got it up-and-down when I needed to, I took advantage of some of the good shots I hit", said McIlroy, who ranks second in the field in strokes gained/putting, a stat he ranked 124th in entering the week. "So, I'm within reach if I shoot a really, really low round tomorrow".

"I still feel like I'm coming back", Woods said.

It was the Northern Irishman's best US PGA round since the first round last August at Akron and he stood third on 206 a week after missing the cut.

"I'm cleaning out my locker, and he's over there having his ice tea thing and so he's just sitting there and, 'Hey, grab a seat.' So we sat down, we just started to BS and have a great time together", Woods said.
