Dubuisson takes 5-shot lead after 3rd round in Turkey; Woods keeps himself in the mix

Victor Dubuisson of France opened up a five-shot lead after the third round at the Turkish Airlines Open on Saturday, while Tiger Woods kept himself in the mix despite three bogeys on the back nine.

Dubuisson opened with four straight birdies and added five more in a bogey-free 9-under 63. He moved to 21-under 195 to distance himself from the field. Ian Poulter was alone in second after a 68, while Woods and Henrik Stensson were among four players sitting another shot back.

Woods had three birdies on the front nine but then mixed three birdies with three bogeys in a six-hole stretch starting at the 11th. He finished with an improbable birdie on the 18th for a 68.

Woods hurt his right hand when his club hit a tree at No. 10, but he said he wouldn't need any treatment.
