Player notes
Here are some of the players you'll see on CBS's coverage of Sunday's final round
AARON BADDELEY
Around the greens, Aaron has salvaged par or better on 13 of 14 attempts this week (93% - 1st) averaging 5 3 from the pin on his average chip shot (T-10th in the field). Aarons strong scrambling performance around the greens can be attributed to his field leading bogey average of 1.00 (tied with Couples for lowest bogey average this week).
FRED COUPLES
Two-time Northern Trust Open champion Fred Couples is just one shot behind Aaron Baddeley entering the final round. Couples has been nearly blemish-free recently making just one bogey in his last 50 holes this week. Couples is averaging just one bogey per round this week (T-1st for fewest this week with Baddeley).
VIJAY SINGH
Vijay Singh has been extremely solid with the putter with a field leading 31 one-putts through 54 holes (57%). Singh is averaging just 26 putts per round this week equating to over 3 putts per round better than his 2011 season average of 29.07.

KEY ROUND 3 VIDEO:Kevin Na's birdie Saturday on No. 10 was nearly a Kodak Challenge eagle • Aaron Baddely was 'real solid' in Round 3 and takes the lead into Sunday's finale. • Louis Oosthuizen provided some excitement in his debut as a TOUR member with this chip-in.
