Tiger Woods struggled to a two-over-par 72 during the third round of the Bridgestone Invitational on Saturday and lost his cool along the way when he cursed at a cameraman who was closely following the former No. 1 golfer in the world.
Woods hit a shot from the rough after a wayward drive at No. 6 when he began walking up the fairway as a cameraman came dashing his way. Woods appeared to begin to swing his club in anger toward the ground when he realized the cameraman was too close for comfort.
He then not-so-politely asked the cameraman to give him some space, adding an expletive for emphasis.
Woods, who would finish the hole with a double bogey, is at one over after three rounds, tied for 36th with several players still to complete their rounds because of a weather delay this afternoon at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.
Of course, Woods' less-than-stellar round is rather moot. Sergio Garcia shot a four-under 67 to move to 14 under and has a three-shot lead over British Open champion Rory McIlroy, who birdied the final two holes for a 66.
Marc Leishman had a 68 and is five shots behind, while Adam Scott returned from the rain delay carrying only his long putter, the only weapon he needed to convert one last birdie for a 65 that at least left him with a slim chance. He was six shots behind, along with Keegan Bradley (68) and Justin Rose (70).
