Mickelson Takes Share of Lead into Final Round

By  | 

Phil Mickelson shares the lead with Nick Watney after three rounds of the CA Championship at Doral, Fla.

Mickelson entered the day with a two-shot lead over Watney
before shooting a 3-under-par 69 that included three straight
birdies on the back nine. Lefty had birdie putts inside 12 feet on
eight consecutive holes until a wild tee shot on the 17th hole led
to a bogey.

Watney shot a steady 67, capping his round with a tough par save
to stay at 16-under.

Tiger Woods was thrilled with how he hit the ball, disgusted
with his putting, and had to settle for a 68 that left him nine shots behind.

Jeev Milkha Singh (seeng) and Camilo Villegas (vih-JAY'-guhs)
were tied for third at 12-under.
