China Daily | Updated:2013-04-15 08:02Tiger Woods ended a turbulent Saturday, both on and off the golf course, close enough to the leaders at the Masters but will have to negotiate uncharted territory in his bid to win a 15th major title.Never before has the American triumphed at a major when trailing after the third round, though the frontrunners will be well aware of his huge comfort level at a venue where he has already claimed four green jackets.”Im right there in the ball game,” world No 1 Woods said after shooting a two-under 70 on a tricky day for scoring at a sun-baked, fast-running Augusta National.”As of right now Im four back with a great shot to win this championship.”However, Woods very nearly had no shot to win the 77th Masters after being investigated by officials for an illegal penalty drop he took at the par-five 15th during Fridays second round.Because that investigation began before Woods had completed the round, disqualification was ruled out as a sanction but he was slapped with a two-stroke penalty after committee chairman Fred Ridley spoke to him earlier on Saturday.ReutersPhotoMegabucks: Chinese footballs hottest winter deals in 2017English champion Leicester fires Ranieri as relegation loomsYao Ming elected chief of Chinese Basketball AssociationMan Dandan wins Chinas first gold at Asian Winter GamesNo defense allowed as West beats East in All-Star gameDenver Nuggets stun Golden WarriorsMost PopularHighlightsCSL lookout: Foreign imports ready to upset orderDubai: Federer out, Murray saves seven match points to winCharting Xis efforts to turn Winter Olympics a successWhats HotCSL lookout: Foreign imports ready to upset orderSpecialRio 2016 Olympic Games2016 Chinese F1 Grand Prix in ShanghaiShanghai Rolex MastersIAAF World Championships Beijing 2015BACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
