Sunday's Forecast: Fireworks

Tiger Woods still leads the British Open by one stroke, the same margin he held entering today's third round, but boy did he cause himself trouble.

What was basically a two-man race is now open to at least 15.

Woods shot 1 under today on a day when everyone else went way low. Just like last year, Tiger had a chance to put the Open away with a good third round. Instead he allowed Sunday to entail some drama. Will Woods recover to finish off the field Sunday, like he did at St. Andrews last year?

The initial signs of vulnerability appeared as Woods missed several short putts -- at least two inside 4 feet.

Woods has never lost a major championship when leading after 36 OR 54 holes. He has his work cut out for him tomorrow. He will not be able to coast. He will likely be forced to shoot something in the 60s, likely the mid-60s.
