Tiger Woods lost the lead at Australian Open after hitting 3 bogeys in 3rd round

The overnight leader at the Australian Open, Tiger Woods, had a terrible morning on Saturday when he hit 3 bogeys in the 3rd round and see his lead going away.

After the second round, he was standing at 9 under par 135 with a single shot lead over Peter O'Malley who defeated Woods in the first round of Match Play Championship held in La Costa in 2002.

It was the first time Since 2009 Australian Masters that he was in lead but he failed to hold on to it. This week is his 2 years anniversary for his last win at the 2009 Australian Masters in Melbourne.

After his 3 bogeys in the 3rd round, he is now 3 shots behind Australian Jason Day. He entered the 3rd round as a leader and soon after he bogeyed 3 holes, he was trying to stay in the game.

Woods is currently tied for the 9th and has 5 holes to play in the 3rd round.

Jason Day who was 2 shots behind Woods after the 2nd round went into lead after he managed to make a birdie on the 5th hole. He also birdied the 8th hole and finished his front nine with a beautiful 40 foot birdie shot at the 9th hole.  He has yet to play 5 holes in the 3rd round and is currently 4 under par on 13 holes that he has played yet.

John Senden finished his round with a great 9 under 63 to take his name to the top and leaving Day behind. Ryan Haller finished his round with 7 under 65 and tied for 4th and 1 shot behind Day.

Dustin Johnson is no longer in the contention after he finished 4 over par 72 for his round and tournament score of par to 216.

The Lakes’ back nines are considered to be easier ones because of the 3 par 5s and all of them feature shots over the water.

Woods along with 7 other Americans that are participating in the Australian Open will be featuring in the Presidents Cup in Melbourne next Week.
