Golf: Watch Your Back Monty, There's a Tiger Behind you.(Sport)


Byline: BERNIE McGUIRE in Heidelberg

A LAST-HOLE birdie kept Tiger Woods well in the frame to retain his Deutsche Bank-TPC of Europe title in Heidelberg.

Woods carded a five- under 67 to go eight under, despite having his claws clipped for the most part over the inward half of his round at St Leon Rot.

The world No1 is now just two shots behind leaders Colin Montgomerie and German hopeful Alex Cejka, and one adrift of a cluster including Darren Clarke and Ian Woosnam.

He birdied 10 and 12, dropped a shot at the 14th, before fighting his way to a share of the lead with birdies at 16 and 17.

Monty said: "Something's happening. I am hitting the ball straighter off the tee and my distance control is back again.

"I am beginning to get the hang of the putter, which is good and I now have bite and fire, very much so.

"There are four tournaments in Germany and I've won the German Open, the German Masters and the BMW, but never this one, so I would like to add this one and win all four in Germany and go one better than Bernhard Langer, who hasn't won the BMW."

But if Monty is to claim a 27th European Tour title, he certainly needs to finish ahead of Woods. …
