Tiger Woods made the cut at the Masters, but it's fair to say that he won't be in contention on Sunday. Woods finished Saturday's round at even par, staying at four-over pay for the tournament. At the moment, he's 14 shots back of the lead. So unless he shoots something insane like a 59, he won't be winning his fifth green jacket this year.

Woods, though, says that he has a new goal for Sunday. Woods, speaking with Amanda Balionis on CBS, said he'd like to see himself get back to par for the tournament. To do that, he'd need to shoot a 68 on Sunday. That's four shots better than he's shot in any round thus far.

Woods, in his three rounds, has shot 73, 75 and 72. A 67 would put him in the red - he says he'd love to see that.

Tiger played his third round earlier than most players - since he barely made the cut. In fact, he'd just finished his round up when CBS started airing the event at 3:00 PM ET.

Woods did manage to avoid the water on the 12th hole for the first time this year. He jokingly celebrated after landing his ball on the green.

Woods will likely tee off early again tomorrow. You'll be able to catch his round on the Masters website.
