GREENSBORO, N.C. — Tiger Woods couldn't have asked for much more at his first Wyndham Championship. He's playing with confidence. His scores show it. And now he'll play a Sunday round that matters. Woods shot 2-under 68 in the third round Saturday, leaving him two strokes behind leader and longtime friend Jason Gore in a three-way tie for second. Gore had a career-best 62 to reach 15-under 195 at Sedgefield Country Club. "I need to go out there (today) and make a run and get myself up there and make some birdies," Woods said. "There's a bunch of guys … at 13 (under). There's a whole slew of guys at 12, 11, 10. Anybody can make a run and shoot the score Jason and Jonas (Blixt) did." Woods — whose streak of 28 holes without a bogey ended on the 18th when his 6-foot par putt lipped out — reeled off 10 straight pars before briefly moving within one stroke of Gore with birdie on the par-3 16th. "I felt very steady from the word 'go,' " Woods said. Blixt and Scott Brown joined Woods at 13 under. Blixt shot a career-best 62 and Brown had 66. Former Wyndham winners Webb Simpson (64) and Brandt Snedeker (67) were three strokes back along with Paul Casey (66), Jim Herman (66) and Cameron Percy (67). Woods was poised to make a run at his first win in more than two years, which would earn him enough points to clinch a spot in the FedEx Cup playoffs opener next week in New Jersey. A solo second-place finish might be enough for Woods, who's at No. 187. The top 125 players make the playoffs."I think it's awesome to see him playing well again, to see him playing like Tiger Woods," Gore said, "because that's what we all want to see." He also moved closer to his 80th PGA Tour victory and first since the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Playing the Wyndham for the first time in an effort to hone his game and earn a spot in the Barclays, Woods is attempting to win in his tournament debut for the first time since 1999, when he won the WGC-Cadillac Championship in Spain. For him, this day was about consistently making pars — 15 in all, including a remarkable save on the 10th with a 24-foot putt. "The putter just felt really good. My pace, I felt like I could be aggressive," Woods said. "I took a few runs at putts and ripped them past the hole, but I never felt like I was going to miss any of them. I took a rip at them. Some I made, some I didn't."His only birdie on the back nine was an important one. He plopped his tee shot on 16 about 12 feet from the hole and rolled in the putt to move to 14 under before giving that stroke back on his final hole. CHAMPIONS: Billy Andrade made a 10-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole for 7-under 65 and a three-stroke lead after the second round of the Boeing Classic in Snoqualmie, Wash. Andrade, 51, had eight birdies — three in a row on Nos. 13-15 — and bogey to reach 10-under 134. First-round leader Larry Mize shot 73 to fall 6 strokes back. LPGA: Two-time champion Lydia Ko bogeyed the final hole for 3-under 69 to fall into a tie with Candie Kung for the third-round lead in the Canadian Pacific Women's Open in Coquitlam, British Columbia. Kung, the second-round leader, had 71 to match Ko at 12-under 204. U.S. AMATEUR: SMU senior Bryson DeChambeau advanced to today's final in Olympia Fields, Ill., putting him a victory away from becoming the fifth player to win the tournament and NCAA individual title in the same year. DeChambeau beat USC sophomore Sean Crocker 4 and 3 in the semifinals and faces Virginia junior Derek Bard, who topped Japan's Kenta Konishi 3 and 2.
