It looks as if Sunday's final round here at the Players may be more of a shoot-out than a battle of attrition, as Saturday's round was. Many players going off early are piling up birdies.There is almost no wind. Aaron Baddeley took advantage of the prime conditions to shoot 66. He started birdie-eagle, shot 33 on the front, and finished birdie-birdie-birdie on the Stadium Course's vaunted finishing holes.Matt Kuchar went out in 33. Nick O'Hern birdied four of his first seven holes. Vijay Singh and Scott Piercy went out in 34. It looks as if scores will be considerably better in the final round.Of course, disaster still lurks. Pat Perez doubled the seventh and ninth holes, John Merrick and Jeff Quinney bogeyed four straight holes starting at the third and Cameron Beckman just made the turn at 40. Should be a good show.
