Tiger Woods reclaims share of lead at Valspar Championship

Tiger Woods reclaims share of lead at Valspar Championship”

Canadian rookie Corey Conners maintained the lead at the Valspar Championship on Saturday, firing a three-under par round of 68 to stay ahead of a pack of three players.

He had a one-shot lead over Woods, Brandt Snedeker and Justin Rose as he goes after his first PGA Tour victory before a crowd rarely seen this side of a major.

With a raucous crowd following the 14-time major victor just up ahead of him, Conners did well to keep his cool, saving par from the bunker on the 17th to keep hold of the lead.

Woods made a chip-in birdie on the ninth to grab a share of the lead at 7-under, but Conners responded with a pair of wonderful wedge shots as he made the turn to jump back on top of the leaderboard.

His momentum slowed on the 13th with a bogey, but gained it back at the next before finishing with four straight pars for a 67.

Only four men beat Woods' score of 67, with Rose's five-under round putting the Englishman in the final group with Conners, who endured a stressful end to his round when his ball moved on the 18th green as he took a practice stroke. Woods was nearly flawless, only a bogey at his final hole, the par-four ninth at Innisbrook Resort north of Tampa, Florida, preventing him from holding the outright clubhouse lead.

Woods, 42, is playing in just his fourth tournament back since returning from spinal fusion surgery, his fourth back surgery in the last five years.

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.
