5:20 p.m. ET
No. 1
Matt Kuchar, Graeme McDowell
Kuchar's 66 in the wind was one of the better rounds on Saturday. Another 66 would put him very close on Sunday.
5:30 p.m. ET
No. 1
Robert Garrigus, Carl Petttersson
Garrigus has a share of the 54-hole lead even though he's not in the final group. His length gives him a huge edge here.

Both of these guys earned the final group by going low on Saturday. Stricker, an early FedExCup favorite, is chasing 500 points on Sunday.

Round 3 player notes
Here are some of the players you'll see on the Golf Channel's coverage of Sunday's final round
ROBERT GARRIGUS
Has a shot to win on the PGA TOUR for the second time in three months. His painful loss last June at Memphis is still mentioned, but the long, downhill par-5 18th doesn't have a lake -- or many trees. He has only missed three greens all week.
STEVE STRICKER
The battle to gain the world's No. 1 ranking is as heated as ever, and Stricker can get an early jump on the race with a win on Sunday. His play in the wind on Saturday was one of the better ball-striking rounds ever at Kapalua. He's awfully comfortable here, and he doesn't give up as many yards off the tee as you think, to go alongside his second-in-the-field driving accuracy.
JONATHAN BYRD
Byrd, like Garrigus, has shot out of the gate this week after winning late last year. He's made only a bogey a day for three rounds, and he missed only two greens despite the wind on Saturday. He has also a perfect 39 for 39 in putts of five feet and in.

KEY ROUND 3 VIDEOS Robert Garrigus was fired up to no end after this dramatic eagle on the 18th hole.. • Steve Stricker joined the leaders at 18 under with a birdie on the 18th hole.. •.Ian Poulter is seven shots back, but he drained a long putt on the 18th on Saturday.
