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.
