Arnie’s Invite (Round 3)

Normally, I wouldn’t refer to a golf tournament’s Leaderboard as the plague, but it was seemingly avoided as scores plummeted in windy conditions at Bay Hill.

As expected, Tiger Woods made his run up the board with 3 birdies on his 4 four holes of 3rd round play. A 4-under 66 is what he went into the clubhouse with, as 4 other players are tied with Woods for first place going into Sunday.

Nick Watney’s eagles at hole #s 6 & 12 left him at the top for a moment, only to card a quadruple-bogey 8 on the 485 yard, par-4 16th, leaving him tied for 7th. Bart Bryant found his trouble at 16 as well, but was able to salvage a bogey and keep him at 6-under with the rest of the leaders.

Salvation was found at the par-5 12th, where Brian Davis and Jim Furyk both holed-out for eagle from 100 yards away.

Vijay Singh still has the lead from yesterday, albeit he is tied with 4 others. An atrocious score of 5-over on the front side was quelled with a more consistent back nine of 2 birdies and 7 pars, keeping the mighty Fijian in the hunt.

The round of the day belonged to Sean O’Hair. His 5 birdies and eagle (no bogeys) on the 12th shot him up the leaderboard into the tie for first.
