|4:10 p.m. ET |
| ||Charley Hoffman, Ryan Palmer|
Charley Hoffman bounced back with a 67 on Saturday, but both players are nine shots back at Kapalua.
|5:20 p.m. ET |
| ||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 |
| ||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.
|5:40 p.m. ET |
| ||Jonathan Byrd, Steve Stricker|
Both of these guys earned the final group by going low on Saturday. Stricker, an early FedExCup favorite, is chasing 500 points on Sunday.
The final round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions takes place Saturday at the Plantation Course at Kapalua. The Golf Channel will televise live action beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET (12:30 p.m. local time).

|Round 3 player notes|
|Here are some of the players you'll see on the Golf Channel's coverage of Sunday's final round|
|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.|
|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.|
|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. |
