Tiger Woods one shot off Valspar lead setting up sensational Sunday

FacebookPinterestMike Ehrmann  Getty Images Mickelson says he's got more victories in him after winning his 43rd career PGA Tour title in Mexico

Tiger Woods is feeling it right now and that couldn't have been more evident with this chip in the par-4 ninth hole during his third round at the Valspar Championship.

While Woods has won 79 times, he hasn't been in the winners circle in almost five years-his last win was at the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

"Nine was good", Woods said.

But he got up and down for par from a bunker at 17, and when his ball moved slightly on the 18th green he stayed calm, consulted a rules official and finished out with a par. Playing out of the penultimate twosome with Tiger Woods (67), the Vanderbilt alum found seven (of 13) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.323 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 1.795 approaching-the-green.

"You can't ignore it, I guess", said the former Kent State All-American of the looming presence of Woods and the chaos that goes with it.

"I was living from minute to minute". "I think two or three times on the golf course our paths crossed, there's a lot more fuss going on the periphery".

"It's fun to hear the crowd going insane again and realise how excited we are in having him back out here and play the way he is".

Dozens of people protested on Wednesday in Chile where the signing of the new Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) will take place in the country's capital.

"I didn't want to go there".

"I came out and tried to have as much fun as possible", he said.

Over 54 remarkable holes here, with expectations starting low and swelling higher, Woods has proven he can still play. He twice matched birdies with Woods with 12-foot putts, and after falling two shots behind and the crowd getting louder by the hole for Woods, Snedeker battled back with a pair of birdies for a 67. He's made 10 previous starts on the PGA Tour this season and finished no better than 29th. But this was the first time he has holed a shot from off the green this year. It's great. They get a little carried away at times and you've got to calm 'em down. I've got a shot going into tomorrow. It's a situation that's caused many players in the past to succumb to the pressure.

Woods responded in style, blazing a drive 327 yards at the par-five 14th to set up a birdie that put him back at eight-under. "He's back in action and everyone's rooting for him".

Conners will be paired with Justin Rose in the final round and will tee of at 2 p.m. Sunday.

The even-keeled Canadian handled himself well in an unprecedented situation, but it will be different when Woods dons the red and black on Sunday.
