Woods felt he played well despite a one over par round

Tiger Woods feels he played a lot better than his score reflected after shooting a one-over-par 71 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer golf Invitational in Orlando.

The world number one, continuing his comeback from reconstructive knee surgery, carded three birdies and four bogeys to end a difficult day at the Bay Hill Club five strokes behind runaway leader Sean O'Hair in second place.

5-time champion Woods says the course was playing so hard today.

He says the wind is so blustery, it's hard to get your distance correct and then once you get on the green the wind is blowing the ball so you've got to allow for wind on putts from five, six feet.

However he says he thought he played well all day.
