Illinois:Tiger Woods shot a 65 on Saturday at the Western Open, setting a 54-hole tournament record with 18-under 198. His round broke by three strokes the mark set by Sam Snead in 1949 at the Golf Club in St. Paul, Minnesota. If he keeps this up, he'll soon own the record book at the Western Open: He has already matched the single-round scoring mark, shooting a 63 on Thursday. Woods also extended his lead to six shots - very bad news for his opponents. Of the other 30 tournaments he's led after three rounds, he's gone on to win 28 of them. Robert Allenby, who won the tournament in 2000, and Cliff Kresge are tied for second at 204. Rich Beem matched Woods' 65 and is seven strokes back. Mike Weir, defending champion Jerry Kelly and Glen Day are at 206. (AP)
