(Newser) – Justin Leonard said it best after his 65 today moved him into a tie for fourth at the Buick Invitational. "There's two tournaments going on. I'm going to try to win the tournament that Tiger's not playing." Tiger Woods shot a 6-under 66 to take an eight-shot lead going into tomorrow's final round, reports the Associated Press.

Woods' lead is the largest 54-hole PGA margin since Phil Mickelson in the 2006 BellSouth Classic. Woods is going for his fourth straight Buick title and his sixth overall. Stewart Cink shot a 69 to hold on to second place. The final round is scheduled for tomorrow, but rain is forecast. The round would be moved to Monday if it is unplayable.
