    Tiger -8 ( -3 for today's round) after 10 holes, tied for the lead in the Valspar Tournament. . .coverage on NBC.

    Have to wonder if seeing Lefty win last week stoked Eldrick's competitive fire. . .

    How will the new swing hold up under Sunday pressure?

    We'll find out today. He's in the penultimate pairing this afternoon, playing with his buddy Grant Snedeker, who was along for the ride yesterday when Woods shot a solid 4 under par 67 that could have been even lower ( he burned the edge of the cup with at least three birdie putts while I watched the broadcast ). He's only one shot out of the lead.

    There are some really good sticks within 4 shots ( Rose, Reed, Palmer ) who might write their own story. . .

    After the SEC game ( Kentucky - Tennessee ) I 'll will be switching to NBC's golf coverage. Could be exciting viewing if Tiger is still in contention when the back 9 starts around 12:45 PST.

    TW shot a 70 and finished 1 stroke behind Paul Casey who shot a 65. TW hit it well but missed some makeable putts. He rolled in a 44 footer for a bird on 17 but he parred 18. Quite a performance after a spinal fusion. TW is back. The Masters is only 3 weeks away.

    From ESPN:

    Third-round coverage on Saturday of the event by NBC delivered a 3.26 overnight rating, the highest third round on any broadcast network since the 2006 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. The final round had a 5.1 overnight rating on NBC, the highest non-major PGA Tour broadcast since the 2013 Players Championship.

    And those who didn't watch on TV got their fix elsewhere. On Saturday, nearly 5.5 million minutes were streamed on Golf Channel and NBC Sports digital networks, up more than 600 percent compared to the Saturday of the same event last year. The Valspar saw 27.2 million minutes streamed across Golf Channel / NBC Sports' digital platforms, which made it the most-streamed PGA Tour event ever for the network, according to Adobe Analytics.

    Tiger bogeyed 16 and 17 to shoot a 69.

    Rory shot a -8 64 to win. Let the talk of the career grand slam begin.
