Sergio Garcia

Nick Watney Sinks Birdie on 18 to Beat Snedeker by 3

by Kenny Ducey
It was an up and down day for just about everyone on the course, even winner Nick Watney.
 
He nearly carded a 1-over back 9, but thanks to a birdie putt on the 18th he finished 2-under for the day. “To make birdie at the last…it was awesome.”
 
There was the possibility of a playoff if Watney had bogeyed 18 and Sergio birdied. After all, Watney had bogeyed it two days in a row.

Tiger Grinds Out 2-Under 69 Despite Bad Back, Trails Leaders Watney and Garcia by 3

by Kenny Ducey

"I'm probably going to sleep on the floor. I do that in Europe all the time, so this is nothing new."

This was not a joke from Tiger Woods, as one reporter had thought. These were the realities the aging superstar had to face after suffering through hours of pain in his lower back. He described it as pain in "a section of movement" that would come right before impact in his swing. Through all this, you'd think the 36 year-old might consider withdrawing - something he says never crossed his mind. Instead, the two-time FedEx Cup winner posted a 2-under 69 to put him three shots back of leader Nick Watney.
