Tiger Woods fades following strong start

Tiger Woods started with a brief run at the lead. Hideki Matsuyama ended Saturday at the Hero World Challenge headed for another victory.

Matsuyama, a winner in three of his last four tournaments, holed out for eagle with a wedge and kept his mistakes to a minimum at Albany on his way to a 7-under 65 that gave him a seven-shot lead over British Open champion Henrik Stenson and U.S. Open winner Dustin Johnson.

Woods birdied his opening three holes and holed a 40-yard bunker shot at No. 5 to get within two shots of the lead. But he started missing fairways on the back nine, ended with a double bogey from the water on 18 and shot 70. He wound up 11 shots behind in 10th place.
