Woods delighted at Doral display

World number two Tiger Woods (1/9 WGC-Cadillac Championship outright) says he is pleased to have a “nice lead” going into the final day of the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral on Sunday.

The American holds a four-shot lead in Miami as he looks to secure his second win, of what so far been a successful year for the 37-year-old.

Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell (10/1 WGC-Cadillac Championship outright) is Woods’ closest contender, as he sits on 14 under par going into Sunday’s play at Doral.

However Woods, who is going in search of his seventh title at the Florida course, is looking strong and is pleased to have a cushion over McDowell ahead of the final round this weekend.

The former world number one said: “It’s important to be playing well especially if the wind is going to blow like it is.

“I’m excited about the way I’m playing, hitting the ball well, making some putts, and this golf course is getting tricky.

“I think that if you’re coming from behind, it’s always nice to have tougher conditions but also when you’ve got the nice lead, too, it’s nice to have tougher conditions and you can make a bunch of pars.”
