Woods closes in on number one world ranking again

2:35 pm on 24 March 2013

Tiger Woods is one good round away from a return to golf's number one world ranking after scoring a six-under par 66, to grab a two-shot lead after the third round of the US PGA Arnold Palmer Invitational, at Orlando in Florida.

Four back from overnight leaders Justin Rose and Bill Haas when the day began, Woods walked off the course to thundering cheers with a two-shot buffer over compatriots John Huh (71) and Rickie Fowler (67) as well as Briton Rose (72).
