Adam Scott did to Tiger Woods what the world's No. 1 player usually does to other players today at the CA Championship, reports the Associated Press. Scott picked up five shots in five holes on Woods and stayed within one shot of leader Geoff Ogilvy, before storms suspended play at Doral. Woods is three shots back as he, Ogilvy, and Scott will need to complete the last seven holes of the third round before tomorrow's final round begins.

"If it was our day," Scott said about the aborted round, "it was cut off way too short."  Woods played well the first two days and looked as if he could win a sixth straight event, but was only even par on his third round on a day when several players in the field were going low. He started today's round by three-putting the first two holes, however. "I'm right there, only three back," Woods said. "A lot of holes to be played tomorrow." (More PGA Tour stories.)
