GREENSBORO, N.C. >> Tiger Woods kept himself in contention for a victory at the Wyndham Championship that would propel him into the postseason.

Woods shot a 2-under 68 in the third round Saturday, leaving him two strokes behind leader Jason Gore in a three-way tie for second. Gore had a 62 to reach 15-under 195.

Woods — whose streak of 28 holes without a bogey ended on the 18th when his 6-foot par putt lipped out — reeled off 10 straight pars before briefly moving within one stroke of Gore with a birdie on the par-3 16th.

Jonas Blixt and Scott Brown joined Woods at 13 under. Blixt shot a 62, and Brown had a 66.

Former Wyndham winners Webb Simpson and Brandt Snedeker were among a group of five players three strokes off the lead.
