Tiger Woods is 6 under overall and looking for a top-10 finish Sunday in the final round of the WGC-Mexico Championship. We’ll be tracking every shot from Woods’ final round. Follow below.
Hole 3: Par 3, 160 yards
OFF THE TEE (1:04 p.m.): Wow, that looked like it was all over the flag but the ball spun back and didn’t stop moving. Long ways to go for birdie from there but he’s on the short stuff.
ON THE GREEN (1:10 p.m.): Aggressive roll there, looked like it had a chance but skated past the hole and leaves a tough one coming back for par. Pretty clear Tiger is going for broke today so this should be an entertaining round. Just made that comebacker for par to keep the momentum going, very strong two-putt there.
TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 under thru 3 (8 under overall)
Hole 2: Par 4, 368 yards
OFF THE TEE (12:51 p.m.): Just an iron off the tee and he looked concerned on the follow through, but the ball trickles down the right side of the fairway and that should be just fine. Will have 129 yards from there.
APPROACH SHOT (12:58 p.m.): Alright, in business here for sure. Beauty from the fairway and he’s just long of the flag, about 7 feet left for birdie.
ON THE GREEN (1 p.m.): Yessir. Drains another putt to start birdie-birdie coming off one of the worst putting performances he’s had in years. That’ll put a little extra lead in the pencil to start the afternoon.
TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 under thru 2 (8 under overall)
Hole 1: Par 4, 322 yards
Sunday red for @TigerWoods.
In the red for @TigerWoods.

OFF THE TEE (12:34 p.m.): That’s how you want to start the day. Just a fairway wood off the tee and Tiger hit a tight draw right up to the front of the green. Might be putting from there for eagle.
AROUND THE GREEN (12:44 p.m.): Opted for a wedge from the fringe and not the best chip. On a good line but left it short, maybe 6-7 feet left for an opening birdie.
ON THE GREEN (12:47 p.m.): Center of the cup. Stroke looked pure on that 8-footer and it’s an opening birdie for Tiger. Good start.
TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 under thru 1 (7 under overall)
Tiger Woods is looking for his first top-10 finish of the season Sunday during the final round of the WGC-Mexico Championship in Mexico City.
Woods played his way into contention late in the third round Saturday, but a double bogey at the par-5 15th eliminated any comeback hopes. He begins the day 6 under overall, 10 shots back of outright leader Dustin Johnson. Woods is T-9 alongside Tommy Fleetwood, Louis Oosthuizen and David Lipsky and has a chance to crack the top 10 in his third start of the season.
Woods is skipping next week’s Honda Classic and will return for back-to-back starts at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and Players Championship.
For now, there’s one more round to be played at Club de Golf Chapultepec, where we’ll be tracking every shot from Woods’ final round.
