Tiger Woods competed for a sixth Hero World Challenge title while chasing US Open champion Gary Woodland with two shots after the third round.

Woods shot a five-year-old under 67 to be third together with American Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm of Spain.

Woodland shot 68 to take one place for the Swedish Henrik Stenson and three for night leader Patrick Reed.

Reed received a penalty with two shots after he appeared to have crushed the sand behind his ball with two practice swings in a bunker.

The American's breach of the 11th hole was only reported to him at the end of his round.

"Every time I step into the bunker, I am afraid to get my club close to it [sand]," said former Masters champion.

"But when you do that when it hits the sand, just like you're in danger and you practice a swing and it cleans grass and breaks grass, it's a punishment.

"So that's why, and after watching the video, I accept that. It was not for a purpose, I thought I was far enough away. "

Justin Rose in England is seven shots behind Woodland along with Rickie Fowler and Craig Reavie.

The event at the Bahamas is held for the benefit of Woods' charity.
