The Players Championship 2012: Tiger Woods Struggles Continue, 13 Shots Back Of Leader Kevin Na

The final round of the The Players Championship is moving along and as been the case in recent times Tiger Woods is immersed in the struggle. Woods finished up his third round going even, and realistically out of contention for a title run on Sunday.

Woods suffered some bad breaks through the front nine on Sunday, as a 4-over start set the tone. Woods started off the round with a bogey five at the first, but got it back with a birdie on No. 2. Then Woods plunked one in the water on No. 4 resulting in a double bogey after starting off from the middle of the fairway. Following another bogey at No. 6, Woods yanked his tee shot on the par-three No. 8 and couldn't save par.

Now through 13 holes, Woods was able to birdie at No. 12 to get his round score back to 3-over. At one over for the championship, he is now 13 shots back of leader Kevin Na.

Na and Matt Kuchar, at 11-under, will tee off last this afternoon at 2:45 p.m. Eatern.
