(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. (Read more PGA stories.)
