Tiger Woods is one round away from returning to No. 1 in the world. With key par saves early in his round and an eagle for the third straight day at Bay Hill, Woods seized control Saturday with a six-under 66 to race by Justin Rose and build a two-shot lead going into the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Orlando, Fla. Woods was at 11-under 205, two shots ahead of Rickie Fowler (67), John Huh (71) and Rose, who at one point was six shots ahead of Woods. Rose had a 39 on the back nine and wound up with a 72. Woods hasn't been No. 1 in the world ranking since the last week of October 2010.

Lindsey Vonn says she's in a happy relationship with Tiger Woods -- "very happy," according to her Facebook post Monday announcing the romance -- but there was a time not so long ago when she had quite a bit of fun at the expense of the golfer and his numerous extramarital affairs. Of course, everyone was poking fun at Woods back in 2010, when he held a nationally televised news conference to address the cheating scandal that eventually led to the end of his marriage to Elin Nordegren.

Turns out, he is what they say he is. He is what they shout. He is what they crave. He is what they believe. No matter how much his sleazy behavior has betrayed everything he claimed to be, Tiger Wood is still The Man. That's how it happens in sports, remember? That's how it happened at Augusta National on Thursday, in a roaring, revealing way that will ensure you never again forget. On golf's grandest stage, Woods crawled out from beneath a five-month sex scandal into the arms of an adoring public and the strength of an astounding swing.

PGA champion Tiger Woods has sold his condominium in Corona del Mar for $2,213,875. But like many other residential real estate owners, Woods landed in the rough when it came to selling a place bought before the housing downturn. Public records show he bought the property in 2004 for $3 million. The town-house-style unit features an open-plan living room on the second story to take advantage of views of Santa Catalina Island. Features include high ceilings, a balcony, three bedrooms, a loft, three bathrooms and 2,000 square feet of living space.

"Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last?" Those words were spoken to Sen. Joseph McCarthy in the 1954 McCarthy-Army hearings. The same question can be asked of columnist Bill Plaschke, who is attempting to link Tiger Woods with using human growth hormone without a shred of hard evidence. It isn't enough to join the chorus of voices condemning Tiger for his extramarital activities; it seems Plaschke enjoys hitting the man when he's already down. Tom Turner Dana Point If Bill Plaschke suspected that Tiger Woods was cheating two years ago, he ought to have had the courage to tell his readers instead of merely confiding to his friends.

Tiger Woods has been the butt of many jokes since his marital meltdown in 2009, and new girlfriend Lindsey Vonn's ex-husband, Thomas Vonn, has joined the chorus of would-be comedians. Woods came under scrutiny on Friday night after he took a questionable drop following his watery approach at No. 15 during the second round of the Masters tournament. His original shot struck the flagstick on the fly and drew back into Rae's Creek in front of the green. It seems Masters officials took some phone calls from television viewers who called out Tiger for taking his drop from behind his original spot when he determined the designated drop zone was less than desirable.

The voice is apologetic, the posture accommodating, the presence appreciative. But the aura remains. Tiger Woods still has it, still works it, still lords it over a game he embarrassed and players he compromised. Tiger Woods still owns golf. Strippers and porn stars couldn't take it from him. A murky automobile accident couldn't damage it for him. Steroid allegations haven't even begun to cling to him. Tiger Woods still owns golf, a fact made clear this week as he returns from a five-month sex scandal not as a heel, but a hero.

With Tiger Woods struggling, long-hitting Bubba Watson stole the limelight from the game's biggest names by surging into a two-shot lead in Thursday's opening round at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Akron, Ohio. Competing in the elite World Golf Championships event for the first time, Watson birdied five of the last eight holes on a hot, humid afternoon to card a six-under-par 64 at Firestone Country Club. He ended his round by finding the left rough off the 18th tee before hitting a lob wedge over trees to 36 feet and coolly sinking a curling putt from just off the green for a birdie.
