For the first time in nearly five years, Tiger Woods is in contention to win a PGA Tour event. After his very public divorce in 2010, numerous back surgeries and an arrest, the 42-year-old Woods looks like he might finally be back to something approximating his old self. After three rounds at the Valspar Championship in Palm Harbor, Florida, he's only one shot off the lead. Whether you are rooting for him or against him, it's fun to have Tiger back and playing a meaningful round of golf on a Sunday. Here's what you need to know.

A 26-year-old Canadian tour rookie by the name of Corey Conners leads the field at 9 under par. Justin Rose, Tiger Woods and Brandt Snedeker are one shot back at 8 under par.

Tiger is set to begin his final round at 1:50 p.m. ET (10:50 a.m. PT). He'll be paired with Snedeker. The final group of Conners and Rose tees off at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT).
