Tiger Woods' suffered a disappointing third round at the World Golf Championship in Mexico on Saturday where he four-putted for the first time since 2010 on a non-Major PGA Tour event.

Tiger Woods had problems on the greens, four-putting at the 15th and three-putting the next, to slip 10 strokes off the pace with a 70.

However, Woods needed a total of four putts to sink the ball in the hole and card a double bogey in an uncharacteristic show of form on the greens.

He started the final round with a 4-shot lead.

Johnson knifed a chip out of a greenside bunker on his way to a bogey at the par-three third, seeing his lead briefly cut to two, only to move back three ahead at the next when McIlroy failed to convert from eight feet to save par.

For all that went wrong, Johnson knew everything was right with his game.

In a recent interview she also said she was "okay" with the brutal methods used by the terror group including beheadings. I suspect she was brainwashed", he is reported to have told the newspaper. "So I thought I was a fair justification".

Woods had played 22 640 holes (1 257 rounds) on the PGA Tour over 3 222 days when he approached the 15th, where everything looked in order as he coaxed a birdie putt up to inside four feet.

McIlroy birdied his first two holes and quickly built a three-shot lead, only to be undone by a four-putt from the fringe at No. 9 that slowed his momentum.

"I was playing good", the American said. He had a gap through the branches and a lob wedge in his hand, but the ball shot out high and hit a tree limb, going into the bushes. It finished just 11 feet from the cup. He wound up hitting into the water and made bogey.

"I'll do a little bit of practicing and a lot of training to try and be ready for the next couple of weeks, " he said.

Reed started birdie-eagle and missed plenty of short putts.
