SYDNEY (AP) — Tiger Woods bogeyed his first three holes Saturday and it didn’t get much better in the Australian Open. He wound up with a 3-over 75, going from a one-shot lead to six shots behind John Senden.

It was the third straight time that Woods had at least a share of the lead and failed to break par.

Senden, who won the Australian Open five years ago at Royal Sydney, birdied his last two holes to finish off a 9-under 63 that gave him a one-shot lead over Jason Day going into the final round.

It was a good day for scoring—except for Woods.

He made a 7-foot birdie putt on No. 4, then didn’t make another birdie until a two-putt from 50 feet up the slope on the par-5 14th.
