Tiger Woods still in the hunt at Valspar Championship

Tiger Woods along with caddy Steve Williams points to the

"I kind of knew what to expect out there with a lot of people and lot of people watching, but I felt comfortable". "But it will be cool. It's a fun position to be in, kind of what I work for and everybody works for out here".

Another birdie followed at the par-5 fifth after Woods almost chipped in for eagle. It's a situation that's caused many players in the past to succumb to the pressure.

Tiger Woods has found some fine form in the PGA Tour event in Florida. It was the longest putt made by any golfer at the event through 39 holes.

Over the course of the week, Woods' odds of winning the Masters in next month have gone from 16-1 to 12-1 to 10-1.

He saved par at the seventh with an 11-foot putt, but his five-foot par attempt at his final hole lipped out.

Approaching the 12th, where four small grandstands covered by tents and a large grandstand to the right of the green were filled with fans who were looking for reasons to let loose.

He is on course for comfortably his best finish after rolling back the years with some of his play. Most were just screaming.

Woods missed them both to slow his momentum.

He dropped his only shot on the next hole when his tee shot sailed over the green into matted, thin grass where the gallery had been standing.

Now comes the hard part.

Woods' highlight of the day was a 20-foot, 10-inch birdie putt on the par-4 third hole.

One of the most impressive aspects of Woods' return has been his short game. All that to say, this is new territory for him.

"I was freezing out there", he said.

"You can't ignore it", he said. He's on the leaderboard and challenging for the lead.

Tiger Woods put his name on the leaderboard again, and this time it stayed there.

"I am excited", he said.

"I'm starting to get a better feel for it, I'm finding the rhythm of the rounds, I'm hitting shots, I don't have a problem posting scores".

"To play myself into contention this early into it was nice, and on top of that, to build on what I did a week ago", he said, referring to the Honda Classic when he was on the fringe of contention going to the back nine.

The 42-year-old's last tour win was in August, 2013, at the World Golf Championship Bridgestone Invitational. And he hasn't won when trailing entering the final round since the AT&T National in 2012.

Woods enjoyed a stroke of good fortune on the par-five fifth when his hooked drive appeared to hit a cart path and bounce back on to the fairway.
