After 54 holes of play, Sergio Garcia has finally risen above Nick Watney by two strokes (-10) with one round left to play at the 2012 Barclays.
Watney, who had an even round Saturday, sits at 8-under with Kevin Standler (-7), Brandt Snedeker, and Bob Estes (-6 each) rounding out the top five.
Garcia had five birdies on the day, but Watney definitely did him some favors, bogeying four of his final nine holes.
Vijay Singh took quite the tumble, falling down 19 spots thanks to a 5-over round while Phil Mickelson was one of the day's more notable risers as he moved up 42 spots and now sits tied for tenth.
Savannah native Brian Harman (-5) still remains in striking distance, sitting in sixth place with four birdies plus an eagle on the seventh hole.

Nick Watney has been heading in the wrong direction despite four birdies in the third round and now is tied atop the leaderboard with Sergio Garcia. Both are 9-under.
Watney birdied the first, fourth, fifth and ninth before bogeys on the 11th and 12th. Garcia has had an up-and-down day of his own with four birdies against four bogeys.
Bob Estes remains in third through his first 12 holes with Vijay Singh dropping to fifth with three bogeys.
Kevin Stadler, whose day is finished, sits at fourth still after his sterling round of 6-under. Stadler has put himself in excellent striking position and could make some serious noise on Sunday if he can keep up this momentum.
Tiger Woods (-4), Phil Mickelson (-4) and Rickie Fowler (-4) are all close together, but only Woods and Fowler will be able to make up anymore ground with Mickelson's round already completed.

Garcia was also more consistent, hitting four birdies and only one bogey, while Watney picked up four bogeys but balanced them out with four birdies and an eagle. Tiger Woods looked like he might be in trouble with an early injury, but he was able to post a -2 for the day, good for a tie for seventh place.
Georgia resident Chris Kirk was even on the day, settling at 3-under overall and a tie for 16th place. Fellow Bulldog Bubba Watson had an up-and-down day, posting four birdies and three bogeys to finish 1-under for the day, 2-under for the tournament so far, leaving him in 27th place.

Tiger Woods has apparently injured his knee and back during the second round of The 2012 Barclays held at Bethpage Black in Old Bethpage, NY.
Woods hit an awkward tee shot and immediately grabbed his left knee and grimaced. His left knee is the same knee that he famously injured during the 2008 U.S. Open. Woods had to have surgery on his knee after the tournament once doctors found out that he tore his ACL, and has been unable to win a major in the four years since his victory. Woods has continued to have problems since his original injury including a ruptured Achilles tendon while rehabbing his torn ACL.
Woods has decided to continue with his round and currently sits at 4-under par after 10 holes. Tiger sits just four strokes behind first round leader Nick Watney, who sits at 8-under par.
The second round of the 2012 Barclays at Bethpage State Park is underway. While most of the big names including Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods and current leader Padraig Harrington are yet to tee off, there has been movement on the leaderboard.
Georgia resident Chris Kirk had a rough start to his round. Starting on hole No. 10, Kirk bogeyed his first three holes and also bogeyed No. 15. His fortunes turned when he hit a hole-in-one on a par-3 No. 17. Kirk added two more birdies on the front nine to finish the round even for the day.
Fellow Georgia Bulldog Bubba Watson has been inconsistent in his second round with three birdies and three bogeys. It has kept his tournament score at one-under and should keep him above the cut line.
The biggest mover so far in the first round is Vijay Singh, who has shot a three-under through 16 to pull within one shot of the lead. McIlroy and Woods tee off at 1:06 p.m. and Harrington tees off at 12:22 p.m.

Savannah native Brian Harman, the surprise of the first day at The Barclays, will tee off tied for second place at 1:17 p.m. from the first hole at the famed Bethpage Black Course, looking to gain on leader Padraig Harrington, who is seven-under and one stroke ahead of Harman. Harrington tees off at 12:22 p.m.
Harman is part of a seven-member group within two strokes of Harrington's 64 on the first day, but just Nick Watney shot a 65 (-6), equalling Harman's impressive debut round at The Barclays. Watney hits the course at 12:33 p.m.
Tiger Woods (-3) is among a 12-golfer group who shot a first-round 68 and tees off just before Harman at 1:06 p.m.
Former Georgia golfer Bubba Watson (-1) gets an early go of it on Friday, teeing off starting with the back nine at 8:16 a.m. Former Georgia Tech standout Matt Kuchar (+1) hits the links at 12:55 p.m. starting at the first tee.
