ShotLink Player notes
Here are some of the players you'll see on CBS' coverage of Saturday's third round:
LUKE DONALD
Luke Donald is currently seventh in the FedExCup standings on the strength of one win and four top-10s. Donald is currently projected to move to first in the FedExCup standings should he go onto win this week.
Donald currently leads the TOUR in scoring average (69.28) on strength of his accurate ball
striking and performance on and around the greens. Donald ranks 14th on TOUR for proximity to the
hole averaging just over 33 feet on all approach shots.
On the greens, he leads the TOUR for putting average (1.703), one-putts (48 pecent), putts per round (27.43) and birdie or better conversion percentage (37 percent).
CAMILO VILLEGAS
In 2010, entering week 16, Camilo Villegas was fifth in the FedExCup standings on the strength of one win. He's is looking to kick start his 2011 FedExCup season with a strong finish this week. In his first nine starts of the 2011 season, he's made five cuts, has yet to crack the top 30 and ranks 143rd in the FedExCup standings.
Villegas has been struggling with his putter this year ranking 188th in putting average (1.862), 180th for putts per round (30.21), and 148th when putting from 4 to 8 feet (64 percent). This week, he's improved on the greens averaging 24.50 (career-low 49 putts through two rounds).
