And will he have trouble sleeping? "No," he says. "Why should I be nervous? That's for game time. I'm going to sleep like a log."
SUNDAY: Woods is pleased to feel the drizzle that begins when he birdies the 3rd hole. "I wanted the conditions to be hard because it's easier to catch up," he says. But his mood changes when he sees that Fred Funk has birdied four of the first six holes and is six shots ahead of him. "Guys out here can just go off," he says. "Only a couple of us could do that in college. On Tour, everybody can."
By the time Woods reaches the 7th hole, play is suspended. Two hours later the final round is canceled. Woods ties for third with Burke, yet while packing for his flight to Orlando, he refuses to celebrate. "I'm not there yet," he says. "I feel good because no one thought I would be able to bounce back after last week, but I did. That shows I'm tough enough to deal with disappointment, but it won't mean anything if I don't keep my focus. I've just got to keep going."
