It has been a remarkable return from his fourth back surgery, especially since he wasn't cleared to start hitting balls until five months ago.
"I putted really, really well on the back nine", Rose said.
"I'm up there", Woods said.

And to have seen him under these circumstances, near the weekend lead, with major season approaching, was something approaching transcendent - even for those who saw it from up close.
Tiger Woods has played consistently well for seven consecutive rounds.

"I've played myself right there into contention so it should be a fun Sunday", he said.
Woods knows better than anyone those days aren't sure to last, but the progress he's made and the work he's put in have led to this moment. "Wasn't really too anxious about what was going on around me".
