Although leader Bubba Watson stumbled down the stretch with bogeys on 15 and 17, he still finished with an even par 70. He is joined at the top with Charley Hoffman and Graham DeLaet who tied for the low round of the day with a 65.

Bubba came out of the gates strong with 3 birdies on the front nine for a 32. He made the turn and made a couple of silly bogeys, first of which on 13 where he can easily reach in two. Then on the drive-able 15th he left his tee shot right in front of the green but failed to reach the putting surface with his second. With a fairly easy up and down from 30ft off the green he left himself a 7 footer for par which slid by the hole. I don’t expect him to do the same¬†tomorrow¬†and if he doesn’t he will see himself a champion for the 5th time in his career.
