The third round of the U.S. Open is finally here, and Tiger Woods has a chance to catapult himself into contention with a strong performance this afternoon.
Woods began the U.S. Open by shooting one-under par on Thursday. Unfortunately, he couldn't capitalize on Friday when several chances presented themselves.
As of right now, Woods enters the weekend even-par and nine strokes behind the top score on the leaderboard.
On Thursday and Friday, Woods was in group with Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth. As you'd expect, all eyes were on that star-studded trio.
While there will still be a good amount of attention directed toward Woods, the legendary golfer will now be paired with Byeong Hun An.
Both Woods and An will tee off at 2:27 p.m. ET from Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Gary Woodland is the current leader due to his impressive score of nine-under par through two rounds. Rose is only two shots behind him, meanwhile Rory McIlroy is in the hunt for the major championship.
Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka should also be seen as potential threats to win the U.S. Open, especially since they're starting to find success with their putter.
Woods hasn't won the event since 2008, but perhaps a run on Saturday could give him momentum heading into the final round.
