Orlando, Florida: Tiger Woods, set to return to the World No. 1 ranking with a victory, fired a six-under par 66 Saturday to seize a two-shot lead after the third round of the US PGA Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Defending champion Woods sank 17 of 18 putts within 20 feet of the cup to finish 54 holes at Bay Hill, where he already has won seven titles, on 11-under par 205.

"I played actually halfway decent, hit a lot of good shots," Woods said. "Made a few putts. That was the key today. I was very pleased with how I played."
