“It didn’t feel any different,” Woods told reporters after the round. “It didn’t feel any different to be next to the lead and knowing what I needed to do. I’ve done it so many different ways. It felt great to be part of the mix and build my way into the championship. Today was a day I had a great opportunity.”
