After a second-round 61 in which he flirted with 59, Woods ended up at 15-under 265 to easily beat defending champ Keegan Bradley and Henrik Stenson.

By Ron Ledgard Published: August 3, 2013

KELLY BARNES:  Please welcome Tiger Woods to the interview room.  Tiger, you've got a seven‑shot lead going into Sunday.  You obviously have an impeccable record.  When you hold the lead going into the final round, talk to us a little bit about how you feel heading into Sunday.

TIGER WOODS:  Yeah, I feel pretty good.  You know, today was a day that I didn't quite have it, but I scored.  And that's the name of the game is posting a number, and I did today.  Grinded my way around that golf course today.  It was playing a little blustery.
