TPC Scottsdale · Scottsdale, Arizona 3rd round February 04 2012

Spencer Levin takes a six-shot lead into the finale at TPC Scottsdale, where he stands 18 holes away from the first PGA TOUR victory of his career. His nearest rival is Webb Simpson and one shot further back is Bubba Watson. Barring any repeat of last weeks final hole collapse of Kyle Stanley this Waste Management Phoenix Open tournament is done and dusted. Don't look back Petersen/Getty Images He was really pleased with another good round today; "I felt like I played solid, I felt like I was in control of my ball most of the day, and I’m pleased. Coming out there, I’ve never had a big lead like that starting the day, and I thought I played well. Overall I’m pleased about it." Webb Simpson was still trying to sort out his errant swing; "We’re just going to see how things are going I think starting out, see how I’m swinging, It’s hard to be aggressive when you’re not swinging well. If we can go figure something out on the range and I’m feeling good, then we’ll be firing at pins and trying to win this thing." Talking about his bogey on the short par four 17th Webb lamented; "I hit my 3 wood exactly where I was trying to hit it. It actually went a little further than I thought it would go, and I went up, and I knew how fast that chip was. I watched Ryan do the same thing in front of me, but I thought if I just land it on top, it'll be perfect, and as soon as I hit it, I thought it was perfect. I never even thought it might go in the water, and it kept going and kept going and kept going and went in the water. It's just a bummer. Phil Mickelson carded his best round of the week but is still  a distant eight strokes off the pace. Phil was happy with his improvement after working with his swing coach Butch Harmon in the morning; "We had a really good session and I was able to feel much more confident," Mickelson said. "I hit a lot of good shots, especially early on, and made some birdies." Asked how he would approach the last round, Phil said; "Just shoot a good round, because out here when you start making mistakes or hitting a bad shot, it's very hard to turn it around with water and trouble everywhere. And there's also an opportunity to make birdies and eagles so, if I get a hot hand and put on some pressure, you never know what might happen."
