ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Tiger Woods and Robert Rock each shot 6-under-par 66 Saturday and share the lead after three rounds of the European Tour's Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.
Woods had a bogey-free round Saturday while Rock closed with back-to-back birdies to overcome a late bogey. They are at 11-under 205 and two strokes up on a group of four players.
Peter Hanson who opened the tournament a 74, had an 8-under 64 Saturday and is tied for third along with Rory McIlroy and Paul Lawrie, who each had 68, and Francesco Molinari, whose third-round 66 got him to 9-under for the tournament.
Four golfers, including second-round leader Thorbjorn Olesen, who was 1-under Saturday, are at 8-under.
Woods said he was "methodically going about my business and grinding." He opened with a birdie and had another at the seventh hole to make the turn at 2-under. Woods moved into the lead with birdies at 10, 12 and 14 and got to 6-under on the day with a birdie at No. 18.
Rock was also 2-under after the front nine and matched Woods with birdies at 10, 12 and 14. A bogey at 16 dropped him back before he closed with birdies at 17 and 18.
