His short game was also sharp, as evidenced by a chip-in birdie from the rough from 30 feet at the par-four ninth, where his ball tracked into the middle of the hole.

Woods hasn't won since his seven-shot victory in the Bridgestone Invitational in August 2013.

"Loud as I've heard it in a long time", Snedeker said.

After playing his first eight holes of the day at 2-under par, Woods belted his drive at the ninth left of the fairway and had to deal with some tree trouble on his approach. A packed crowd followed Woods around all day cheering him on and seeing some of those trademark fist pumps every time he hits a good shot.

"I am excited. I feel good", Woods said.

"Once I played with him at Torrey and saw up close that he was playing pain-free.no, this doesn't surprise me at all, " Snedeker said. "I feel like I'm playing a bit better and cleaner. My disc was still intact so we're trying to save the disc and I just never know with the future". "Really cool to see the people and the roars that he got".

Woods showed no sign of allowing his momentum to slip heading into his third round over the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort, picking up a birdie three on the third hole and then another at the par-five fifth.

In today's final round he will once again be paired with Brandt Snedeker in the next to last group.

"I didn't want to go there".

Spieth missed the cut for the second time this year. 12 and 13 on Friday to get off to a strong start. He said his doctors had not given him clearance to hit balls.

Celtics' Brown OK after scary fall
The Celtics bench stayed hot, dropping 42 points, with Morris leading the way with 17 points (7-15 FG) and five rebounds. As of now, the Raptors will have a chance to play against the Boston Celtics three more times before the playoffs begin.

Given it is has been over three-years since Woods has been in a position for victory, and given four well-published back operations, Woods was asked what would it mean if he were to win tomorrow.

"The key to winning [on Sunday] is the guy that goes out there and respects this golf course, takes his chances when they come and commits to the shot". "He's back in action and everyone's rooting for him".

On Saturday, he played in the group behind Woods.

"I got into the field late, and kind of came in here with nothing to lose", he said.

Watch the final round of the Valspar Championship live on Sunday from 5pm on Sky Sports Golf and 6.30pm on Sky Sports Main Event.
