AT&T National 2012: Tiger Inches Toward Top Of Leaderboard After Shooting 67

In 2009, the last time the AT&T National was played at the Blue Course at Congressional, Tiger Woods won the tournament, fairly easily. After shooting 4-under 67 on Saturday, he might be in position to do so again. Woods is tied for second through 54, just one stroke back of the leader Brendon de Jonge, who fired a 69 in the third round.

"I started off five back, and I needed to make a run," Woods told reporters afterwards. "Whether we have thousands of people or we have a small handful of people out there, it doesn't change the execution of the shot. The shot needs to be placed correctly in the fairway and on the correct side and then fired to the correct spot on the green and then holed. That doesn't change anything.

Joining Woods one stroke back of de Jonge are Bo Van Pelt and Seung-Yul Noh, who shot 67 and 69, respectively, on Saturday. Another stroke beind was Billy Hurley III and Hunter Mahan.
