Who Will Blink First? Woodland For the second straight day, Gary Woodland and Jhonattan Vegas are tied for the lead. Woodland had the lead to himself until Vegas closed with five consecutive birdies. So who will take home the title Sunday? Vegas leads the field in birdies; Woodland made several clutch par saves Saturday to keep his round going. Both players have enough game to capture their first title, but if they falter, there are plenty of names within five shots -- including defending champion Bill Haas, Matt Kuchar, Boo Weekley, Ryan Palmer and Charles Howell III -- who could move quickly up the leaderboard. Early Birds Get the Trophy?It will also be interesting to see how Woodland and Vegas will respond if someone from the earlier groups goes really low. Haas, who shot 62 on Saturday, showed a crazy-low score is not out of the question, and with the winning score looking to be around 30 under, guys will be flag hunting all day.
