Tiger Woods leads at America Express, eyes sixth straight win

Tiger Woods came back from a bad start to take a six shot lead at the American Express Championship Saturday.

Woods made three straight eagles Saturday to lead after the 54th hole. He is 37-3 on the PGA Tour when he has a 54th hole lead.

No opponent has beaten Woods when he has a lead in the final round by more than one shot, so it looks like the star golfer is on his way to a sixth straight PGA win.

If Woods wins eight titles this year it will match his record of 2000, which many analysts thought he would never reach again.
