Forget fist pumps. When Tiger Woods watched a long putt on No. 17 roll in, he raised his right arm and extended his index finger high in the air.
And who knows? Maybe he can still get there this week, after a remarkable round of golf Saturday at Pebble Beach.
Woods shot 5-under 31 on the back nine to post a 5-under 66 for the day and vault from also-ran to big-time contender at the U.S. Open. When his third round was over Saturday, he was at 1-under 212 for the tournament, four shots behind Graeme McDowell, who along with Dustin Johnson, were out in front, but fighting both the wind and their games.
