His nearest rivals were two shots behind at -11 under par, four players tied at this score; Martin Laird, Zach Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Ben Curtis. Coming in two shots further back on -9 under par was Luke Donald, who recorded a fabulous -6 under par on his last nine holes, for a round of 66. He finished in 6th place but needed to finish 4th or higher to replace Rory McIlroy as world No 1.
The 54 hole leader Kevin Na waggled his way round in a frustrating +4 over par, 76. A sad performance taking into account his previous rounds, I guess his jitters got to him in the end.
Bob Estes had the round of the day, shooting a sparkling -7 under par 65, to finish with a flourish and in a tie for 15th place.
