MARANA, Ariz. (AP) -- Tiger Woods had to earn his spot in the
next round of the Accenture Match Play Championship. He made 12
birdies in 20 holes and needed every one of them to defeat Aaron
Baddeley. The win sends Woods into the quarterfinals.
Baddeley was 1 up with three holes to play and twice had putts
to end the match. A 10-footer on the 18th hole broke sharply below
the hole, and his 12-foot eagle putt on the 19th hole burned the
left edge of the cup, giving Woods new life.
Woods' final birdie was from 13 feet.
