Tiger in the hunt at Torrey Pines

A missed cut at last week's Abu Dhabi Championships didn't mean Tiger Woods changed his game at this week's Torrey Pines; Mother Nature did the job for him.

Calm breezes as oppose to blustery conditions, an easier rough and a course he has known since he was in his teens all led to a marked improvement at the San Diego course - a 4-under-par 68 that keeps him in touch with the leaders.

''Last week's conditions were a lot more difficult and the fairways were narrow and the wind was howling,'' Woods said.

''I felt like I was doing a lot of good things right last week - unfortunately, only for a few days, but I doing a lot of good things right. And I came out here today and basically did the same thing.''

Despite still struggling a little with putter - missed birdie putts on the back nine, as well as two par 8-footers - Woods was pretty content with a performance that leaves him just three behind leaders K.J. Choi and Brandt Snedeker.

''I made a few mistakes out there, but I made some nice plays as well,'' Woods said.

Snedeker had spoken bullishly of his chances ahead of the day's play and he walked the walk going bogey-free for a 65, but he knows that Woods is a threat.

''I think he's won here more times than I've won on tour, so I think he knows the place pretty well,'' Snedeker said.

''I think he's very similar to me. He loves putting on these greens. ... We've got three more days to go. There's 155 guys I'm still worried about besides him, so we have a lot more guys to worry about.''
