Dec. 7, 2013 THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) -- Tiger Woods birdied two of his last three holes to salvage an even-par 72 in the wind and keep his two-shot lead over Zach Johnson in the World Challenge on Saturday.

The score looked routine. The third round was not.

Wind that pushed away some light rain at the start of the round created havoc in the foothills of Sherwood Country Club. Woods hit a tee shot in the water and three-putted from about 6 feet on a par 5. But he finished strong and was at 11-under 205.

Johnson also finished two birdies, including a 20-footer on the 18th for a 72.

Bubba Watson three-putted the 18th for a 69 and was four shots behind. No one else was closer than six shots of Woods.
