PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. - The wind blew, the greens got firm and the putts weren't dropping like they had the first two days. Even so, Rory McIlroy was content with his one-under-par 69 Saturday that extended his lead to two shots heading into the final round of the Honda Classic. "I think it was a very solid round of golf," said McIlroy, who had four birdies and three bogeys. "I'm still in the lead of the golf tournament and I can't be disappointed with that. " McIlroy was at 12-under 198. Russell Henley, who began the day in third, shot 68 and was in second at 200. Russell Knox, who climbed up the leaderboard into fourth place Friday with a 63, came back with a 68 and was in third at 201. Jhonattan Vegas shot a second consecutive 66 to move into fourth at 202.

With Tiger Woods near the bottom of the field and Phil Mickelson unable to make a move, Sean O' Hair and Ryan Palmer charged into a tie for the lead in Saturday's third round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Akron, Ohio. O'Hair fired a six-under-par 64 and Palmer a sparkling 63, the only two bogey-free scores of the day, as the pair edged one shot clear of a tightly bunched leaderboard at Firestone Country Club. O'Hair and Palmer were at nine-under 201, with Matt Kuchar alone in third after carding a 66 on a soft layout vulnerable to low scoring.

  Young Patrick Reed regained consciousness just in time to make Sunday's final round of the Humana Challenge golf tournament at La Quinta interesting. He had described his first three rounds of 63-63-63 as similar to "being in a putting coma. " The other players in the tournament could only nod in agreement. Going into Sunday on the Palmer Private course, Reed had made a total of two bogeys. That, along with his 25 birdies and two eagles, gave him a seven-shot lead and reduced the victory expectations of the rest of the field to zilch.

Sean Payton might not want to quit his day job. The New Orleans Saints coach is moonlighting this week as a PGA Tour caddie, working the bag for his friend Ryan Palmer at the Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia. Payton had originally planned to vacation at the resort, but then Palmer gave his regular caddie the week off and the coach offered to step in. "I certainly have a great appreciation for the job that these caddies have," Payton said after a practice round earlier this week. "All of a sudden it starts raining a little bit, you're one hand short, you've got umbrellas going, towels going everywhere.

Thursday at the Humana Challenge was just another lousy day in paradise. The sun glistened against the mountains, temperatures hovered around 80, the wind took the day off and 112 pro golfers in a field of 155 shot under par. It was a day when there were more birdies than you'd see in an aviary at the three perfectly manicured golf courses in the desert city of La Quinta, After all the scoring carnage, the leader, at nine-under-par 63, was...

Keegan Bradley shot a one-under-par 69 in a round that started and ended with bogeys, good enough for a three-stroke lead after two rounds in the Byron Nelson Championship at Irving, Texas. A day after setting the TPC Four Seasons course record with a 60, also with two bogeys, Bradley went into the weekend at 11-under 129. That is the lowest 36-hole total at the Nelson since 2001. Tom Gillis, who shot 63 in the first group of the day off the No. 10 tee, and Sang-Moon Bae were tied for second.

Ryan Palmer went from anxious to overwhelmed in the 50 feet his chip shot traveled on the final hole until it struck the pin and settled inches away, leading to a one-shot victory Sunday in the Sony Open at Honolulu. Palmer, locked in a duel with Robert Allenby to the very end at Waialae, came up short of the green on the par-five 18th and faced a delicate chip. Allenby went over the green and pitched to just inside 10 feet. Palmer thought his chip was a smidgen too hard, and he tumbled backward in relief when the ball struck the pin squarely.

The highlight of Ryan Palmer's rookie season on the PGA Tour came seven months ago at Bay Hill in Orlando, Fla., when he met Arnold Palmer. That changed Sunday in the Funai Classic at Disney in nearby Lake Buena Vista, where the 28-year-old Texan made five birdies in his first six holes to get into contention, then pulled away with four birdies in a row down the stretch for a 10-under-par 62 and a three-shot victory over Vijay Singh and Briny Baird.
