Former world number one Tiger Woods faded from contention in his comeback at the Hero World Challenge with a three-over 75 in the third round.

After two impressive rounds, the 41-year-old American struggled in a strong breeze, dropping four shots in seven holes before a further bogey on 10.

The 14-time major winner rallied with the putter late on, making birdies at 14 and 17 to move back to four under.

He is 10 behind Charley Hoffman, who extended his lead to five with a 70.

American Hoffman, 40, is now 14 under and his nearest challengers at Albany Golf Club in the Bahamas are his compatriot Jordan Spieth and England's Justin Rose.

Race to Dubai winner Tommy Fleetwood was on nine under heading to the last but made a double-bogey to drop into a five-way tie for fifth at the 18-strong invitational tournament, which benefits Woods' charitable foundation.

High winds made scoring difficult for the entire field on Saturday, but Woods was particularly erratic early on, missing the fairway with his opening tee shot before a poor chip and a missed putt from 12 feet for par.

"Anything that I did right ended up in a bad spot and everything I did wrong was really bad," said Woods, who is playing his first tournament after nine months out with a back injury.

"It's ridiculous it took me 14 holes to make a birdie - it's just one of those days.

"I've missed the fight. Getting out there and competing, fighting against the golf course and the rest of the guys - it's so much fun. I missed doing this." (BBC)
