Tiger Woods struggled to a two-over-par 72 during the third round of the Bridgestone Invitational on Saturday and lost his cool along the way when he cursed at a cameraman who was closely following the former No. 1 golfer in the world.
Woods hit a shot from the rough after a wayward drive at No. 6 when he began walking up the fairway as a cameraman came dashing his way. Woods appeared to begin to swing his club in anger toward the ground when he realized the cameraman was too close for comfort.
He then not-so-politely asked the cameraman to give him some space, adding an expletive for emphasis.
Woods, who would finish the hole with a double bogey, is at one over after three rounds, tied for 36th with several players still to complete their rounds because of a weather delay this afternoon at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.
Of course, Woods' less-than-stellar round is rather moot. Sergio Garcia is running away with the lead at 14 under, five shots clear of British Open champion Rory McIlroy and Marc Leishman.
