Tiger Woods stayed alive in the US PGA Tour's Fed Ex Cup playoffs when he compiled a tidy final round at the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Woods birdied three of the final four holes for a three-under-par 68 in pleasant conditions at the Boston TPC.
He finished at 10-under 274, which should place him around 12th place at the end of the day.
Woods also ensured he would be among the top 70 players on the FedEx Cup points list to advance to this week's BMW Championship in suburban Chicago.
He will go into the third of four playoff events at about 50th place on the list.
"I'm very satisfied. The things we've been working on are starting to come together," Woods, referring to his swing changes with coach Sean Foley, told NBC television.
"I started feeling more comfortable. I'm able to fix it on the golf course. That's the biggest thing. When I hit a couple of bad shots I'm able to rectify it.
"Today I was trying to shoot about 62. I thought that would have been a pretty good number but I didn't do that."
