Norton: Tiger Woods stayed alive in the PGA Tour`s playoffs when he compiled a tidy final round at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday.
Woods birdied three of the final four holes for a three-under-par 68 in pleasant conditions at the Boston TPC.
He finished at 10-under 274, which should place him around 12th place at the end of the day.
Woods also ensured he would be among the top 70 players on the FedEx Cup points list to advance to this week`s BMW Championship in suburban Chicago.
He will go into the third of four playoff events at about 50th place on the list.
"I`m very satisfied. The things we`ve been working on are starting to come together," Woods, referring to his swing changes with coach Sean Foley said.
"I started feeling more comfortable. I`m able to fix it on the golf course. That`s the biggest thing. When I hit a couple of bad shots I`m able to rectify it."
"Today I was trying to shoot about 62. I thought that would have been a pretty good number but I didn`t do that."
Meanwhile, Briton Luke Donald and American Charley Hoffman shared the lead more than halfway through the final round.
They were 18-under after 11 holes, while overnight leader Jason Day was one stroke behind after 10 holes, with a further three-shot gap to Australian Geoff Ogilvy and American Brandt Snedeker.
