Ryan Moore sits in third, shooting 5-under for the round for 6-under in total. Jim Furyk opened the day in the lead and stayed there much of the day. After going 1-under through 16, but hole No. 17 would be his undoing. A triple bogey sent him to a tie for fourth and 5-under with Rory McIlroy and Bubba Watson.

Tiger Woods improved on his showing from Friday. After opening the day tied for 12th place, the Stanford grad shot 3-under and ended the day tied for seventh, 4-under overall.
