Two-time victor Woods and world number four Spieth carded their best rounds at TPC Sawgrass in Florida to improve to eight under overall. I hit a lot of good shots today.
On Sunday at the Wells Fargo Championship, he played a birdie-free round for just the 11th time in his PGA Tour career.
Woods' epic - and encouraging - round featured a front-nine 30, a season-high eight birdies, one bogey and a couple of missed opportunities on the back nine.
As his 36-hole score bounced around on both sides of the cut line late Friday afternoon, long after Woods left the premises in a tinted courtesy auto, whatever pre-Masters momentum he accrued at the other three PGA Tour stops in Florida seemed like a distant memory.
Woods was eight under after 12 holes of his third round but a bogey on the 14th checked his progress and he finished with four pars. He blasted to 8 feet but couldn't convert. "He's got control, the shape, hit some nice little cuts, a couple nice little draws".
"As I've told you guys this week, I got my playing feels back and it's just a matter of playing and executing and putting the shots together", said Woods. He just kind of had control of his golf ball.
"I won't be by end of the day, but it's nice to kind of somewhat be up there", he said.

A network spokesperson said Mr McInerney would no longer be invited to appear on the Fox Business Network or Fox News. There was reportedly "discomfort" in the room after her comment.
Hughes, 27, said he grew up watching and idolizing Woods, and it was a thrill to be paired with him. "And I think even more so maybe with putting", Simpson said.
In the middle of a comeback that has seen both ups and downs on both the greens and off the tee, Woods managed to hit 15/18 greens and had over 99 feet of putts.
The 65 for Spieth is his lowest round ever at TPC Sawgrass and just the second time he's cracked 70 since the second round in 2014 when he shot 66 and almost went on to win the tournament (he shot 68 in Round 2 this year).
"I think golf as a whole and sports as a whole, confidence is so big, and it can change the way you think". 10 to 15 feet today, and anywhere inside, which was probably the first time this year that's been the case, " Spieth said.
"It was nice. I made some putts today".
"I felt more comfortable driving the ball and being a little more aggressive off the tees and getting it down there, squeezing it around some of these corners and consequently I had a lot of nine-irons on down". It leads into the rest of the game.
The 42-year-old has displayed patience, outwardly at least, knowing that even a player of his calibre needs some time to get back to near his best after missing so much time through injury.
