Kevin Streelman will get his chance to meet Tiger Woods today. The PGA alternate will tee off with the world's best player at Torrey Pines as he is four back of the Buick Invitational leader going into the third round, the AP reports. Woods shot a 7-under 65 on the North Course yesterday to take control of the tournament he has won three years in a row.

Streelman, ranked No. 1,354, shot a 69 on the tougher South Course. Woods, ranked No. 1, is at 12-under for the tournament, but he isn't  too excited.
