Leaderboard | Photos | Course Profile | TV Schedule 6:39 p.m. Routine two-putt par. Final board is Westwood -14; Allenby -13; Crane, Glover and F. Molinari -12. Sunday should be fun. Mickelson has a long way to go, but Westwood didn't run away from the field, so it's up for grabs. 6:33 p.m. Tee shot settles on a drain on the cart path. Takes two driver lengths and still has a tough shot. Wow. What a shot. Over the trees and right over the flagstick. Safely on. 6:27 p.m. Final group is on 18. Westwood's tee shot drifts right, may have tree trouble for his second shot.

6:24 p.m. Westwood hits a super-soft putt down the hill and comes up short. Conservative play but leads to an easy par. 6:16 p.m. After a nifty up-and-down birdie for Westwood on 16, he has the lead to himself at -14. Solid tee shot on 17 with a makeable birdie putt. 6:10 p.m. Slocum burns the edge. That's a double and he falls back to -11, two behind the leaders. Meanwhile, on 18, Lucas Glover had just 168 to the green but missed the surface to the right. He salvaged par to finish -12. 6:06 p.m. Slocum puts the next one on the green in good position. He has a chance to salvage bogey. 6:03 p.m. Allenby and Glover hit perfect tee shots on 18. Heath Slocum finds the water on 17. Looks like he won't be tied for the lead at the end of the day. 5:58 p.m. Allenby drains a nice birdie putt on 17 to get to -13, tied for the lead. 5:53 p.m. Westwood and Slocum are tied at 13 under with only a few holes left. Glover and Allenby are only one back. 4:59 p.m. Slocum (14 under) birdies par-5 11th to pull ahead of Westwood. Stroud, Clark, Glover, Allenby and Molinari are at 11 under. 4:28 p.m. Heath Slocum (13 under) made a birdie on No. 9 to move into the lead over Lee Westwood. But Westwood responded with a birdie on 9 to tie Slocum. Chris Stroud and Tim Clark have the clubhouse lead at 11-under par. 3:43 p.m. Zach Johnson has joined Mickelson in the clubhouse at 9 under. Heath Slocum (12 under) just made a birdie on No. 6 to pull within one of Westwood, who is in trouble on No. 6. 3:05 p.m. Lee Westwood birdies No. 2 to get to 13 under. Tim Clark (10 under) is 5-under par in his round through 13 holes. 2:43 p.m. Tiger Woods had a good round going, but he bogeyed the last two holes to shoot a 1-under 71. Woods is currently tied for 43rd. Lee Westwood and Ryuji Imada have just teed off in the final group. 2:07 p.m. The leaders have yet to tee off, but it's already been a big day at the Players. Phil Mickelson shot a 6-under 66 to finish at 9-under par. Lefty made seven birdies and one bogey on Saturday. Tiger Woods is 3-under par on his round through 15 holes. Lee Westwood still leads at 12 under, and he tees off at 2:35 p.m.
