Okay, it's early but Tiger Woods has birdied the first three holes at the Hero World Challenge. In case you are wondering, Woods' career low-round is 61, shot four times, the most recent during the second round of the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational -- which happens to be where he posted his 79th and last PGA Tour victory.

Can't birdie 'em all if you don't birdie the first three. Hat trick for Tiger Woods to kick off the round.

Malik Monk is a great defensive presence for Kentucky right now. Doing a great job of playing the passing lanes. On the turnover he just forced, he didn't even see the pass but he had his hands up and deflected it. So active. All from a guy who admits he didn't play a lot of defense in high school because he didn't have to.

I'd say Tiger Woods iron game is still on point... inside 3' on the first for birdie and that's Tiger's tee shot at the par 3 second hole closer than Rickie Fowler. Of course as they walked to the green and saw their shots the needling began!

Tiger Woods said his best shot in yesterday's second round was his wedge approach into the first green. Well, he just started his third round and knocked the exact same shot even closer today.

Courtney Lee says his ankle sprain is improving and he hasn't ruled out returning to the lineup Sunday against the Kings. The big test will be if Lee can move well laterally today. "It feels a lot better than it did when I initially twisted it," Lee said Friday. "I wasn't able to walk that night but I was able to move around (Friday)." If Lee can't play Sunday, look for Justin Holiday to start in his place.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin will not play for the Chiefs on Sunday against the Falcons in Atlanta. The Chiefs changed his status for Sunday's game to out. Maclin hasn't played since a Nov. 6 game against the Jacksonville jaguars because of a groin injury. He did return to practice as a limited participant this week. The Chiefs also downgraded the status of cornerback Phillip Gaines to questionable for Sunday's game.

As expected, Gabriel starts at right-back for Arsenal instead of out-of-form Jenkinson. Xhaka and Ox also back in starting lineup. Perhaps that's worrying news for Aaron Ramsey.
