Tiger Woods can probably forget about winning a third straight British Open at St. Andrews.
The world's top-ranked player struggled to a 1-over 73 on Saturday despite having four putts for eagle. None of them went in, and he faces a daunting 12-stroke deficit heading to the final round. South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen maintained his lead at 14-under 201.
Woods opened the tournament with a 67, but hasn't been able to break par since then. He's still seeking his first win since coming back from a sex scandal, and St. Andrews is one of his favorite courses after dominating wins in 2000 and 2005.
No one has ever come back from more than 10 shots down on the final day of the British Open.
