(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The American had hoped to play considerably better and that the wind would get up as he looked to improve upon his three-under par score and edge ever closer to the leaderboard



However, having carded two birdies and bogeys apiece across the front nine, Woods could only manage two more birdies along the back in seemingly favourable conditions as he ended day three on five-under



"I wasted a lot of opportunities out there today (Saturday)." Woods admitted. "Today was an easy day. I only hit a couple of bad shots. I really hit it good and threw away a lot of shots. I missed a ton of putts



"I smoked it today. I did a little bit of a fix last night and it felt like it was good. Once the wind picked up, it was back to how we are in Florida every day. It blows every day on the East Coast and it felt like home. The only difference is that we have to play for so much give on the greens.



Woods' early-seasonform thus far has led some observers to speculate upon a terminal decline for the world number one, who claimed no less than five tournament titles in 2013 alone




However, his close friend Fred Couples believes such talk is well wide of the mark, with Woods' respective performances in the four major championships and big US events more telling indicators of just where his game is at any given point in time



"His form is his form and, when he's on, he's on. Is he playing his best? No. It doesn't take a genius to figure that out," Couples explained



"But, he's always got his steps going and if he gets to Doral and Augusta and if he's not playing good in those, I would be shocked



"I'm not really worried about his game. You've got to give him a little room and come Augusta, Sunday night - if he doesn't play well - then you can say all of these things he didn't do and the swing is not right. But, it will be right.
