Rose gets hot with the putter to lead Bay Hill

(Continued)

"I dedicated myself at making a few changes and getting better at that part of the game," Rose said. "I've had some good days, no doubt. And today was probably the first real hot day I've had with the blade in a long, long time. We all know it's about consistency and that's what I'm still working towards.

"It's just fun to know that I obviously can do it, and I enjoy a lot of confidence from that."

For all his birdies, it was crucial for Rose not to drop any shots after an early bogey on the 11th, and he did that with par saves on the 14th and 15th. Just as key was the 18th, when he played short of the water for his second shot from the rough, and then made a 10-footer for par.

"Justin played a beautiful round of golf today," Woods said. "He had every single facet of his game working, so we had a good time out there."
