ORLANDO, Fla. — One swing cost Tiger Woods a comfortable lead Saturday at Bay Hill. He still finished atop the leaderboard, leaving him one round away from winning on the PGA Tour for the first time in 30 months.
Woods, who led by as many as four shots on the back nine, hooked a tee shot out-of-bounds on the 15th hole for double bogey. He wound up with a 1-under 71 for a one-shot lead over Graeme McDowell at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Woods has history on his side when it comes to location — in the lead and at Bay Hill. He has a 37-2 record on the PGA Tour when he has lead going into the final round, and he has won a record six times on this golf course.
