Woods mixed six birdies with three bogeys in his three-under-par 69 during the third round at Florida's Bay Hill. DeChambeau, the second-round co-leader, hung on for second with a 72.
While Woods is five off the 12-under lead held by Henrik Stenson, McIlroy closed to within just two shots after a 67, his lowest score on the PGA Tour so far this year. He found the front bunker on the par-3 17th, hit out to 15 feet and made that one, and then saved par from the bunker left of the 18th green down the slope toward the green, holing a 5-foot putt.
Henrik Stenson has another chance to win at Bay Hill, and he made it a little bit tougher on Tiger Woods. "I came into this week really positive".
"I was looking for a little better", Stenson said. Previously he's bemoaned the fact that "my kids have never understood what I've been able to do in golf because they've never seen me in action and always think I'm the YouTube golfer".
Elon Musk Says He's 'Inspired' by Kanye West at SXSW
It's easy to be skeptical about the early 2019 target, and not just because of Musk's historically overambitious schedules. Whether an AI-induced third World War is what drives us off the planet, he didn't say.
"I'm just happy to be back playing again, competing, grinding out there and trying to work my way up the board, work my way around the golf course", the victor of 79 PGA Tour titles and 14 majors said.
Hall of Famer Laura Davies matched Park with a 63 at age 54 to move into a tie for fourth at 11 under.
South Korea's An Byeong-hun was in a pack on 208 that also included Americans Rickie Fowler, Talor Gooch and Charley Hoffman. He took his only lead when Stenson fanned a 3-wood off the tee at No. 8 and had to lay up short of the water in making bogey.
Speaking about his lengthy birdie putt on the seventh, Woods added: "It was coming over that hill a little too quick".
Nobody Can Believe What Mourinho Said After 'Rashford Criticism'
Bizarrely, among certain pundits, it was even claimed that Rashford should seek out a loan move to enhance his chance of representing England at this summer's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation .
It gets really juicy in the T-7 crowd with cutthroat Patrick Reed and noted Twitter provocateur Grayson Murray.
"I started the day just outside the top 10 and wanted to at least give myself a chance going into tomorrow, so it was a great day out there", McIlroy said. "But my responsibility is to go out there and shoot a low one first".
But the 36-hole leaders couldn't expand their edge, allowing Rose, McIlroy and Woods among others to charge into a Sunday showdown, 12 rivals in all within five strokes of Stenson at the Orlando layout.
"I've been up in the mix and let's hope for a different outcome tomorrow", Stenson said. "Trying to hit ideal putts instead of, you know, the hole is quite wide. It's great to be back our here".
Packers sign Bears' Kyle Fuller to offer sheet
Chicago also owned the right to match any offer from other teams, without any compensation coming its way if it were to pass. Fuller, a former first-round pick, was given the transition tag by the Bears before free agency opened.
Tiger Woods was getting his swag back at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Even despite the driver woes, Tiger was just one swing - a double-crossed tee ball out of bounds on No. 16 - from really having a chance to win this golf tournament.
