Tiger Woods growing concerned over putting problems

Former world number one Tiger Woods has admitted his concern at the state of his putting at the Northern Trust, Sky Sports report.

Despite carding a bogey free round of 68 on Saturday, Woods failed to convert numerous birdie opportunities to move up the leaderboard after just making the cut on Friday.

The 14-time major champion, who is aiming to qualify for the Ryder Cup as a player for an eighth time, needed 28 putts to complete his third round and 35 to complete his second round.

The 42-year-old, who played alongside Englishman Ian Poulter during the third round, missed six birdie putts from 12 feet or less and admitted shortly after the completion of his round that he is having a few problems on the greens.

It’s just one of those things where I’m struggling seeing the lines. The pace has been okay, not great, but my feel is just a little bit off.

Whether I’m seeing high lines or low lines, they are just not quite dialled in yet. I’m just not seeing the breaks and for some reason. It’s just one of those weeks where even the good ones are hitting the lips.

Woods will be looking to finish as high as possible on Sunday, as he aims to not lose any ground in the current FedExCup rankings.
