Here are some of the players you'll see during Sunday's coverage on CBS:
RICKIE FOWLER
This is only the second time Fowler has held or shared the 54-hole lead on the PGA TOUR. He was the 54-hole leader at the 2010 Memorial presented by Nationwide Insurance where he finished second to 2010 AT&T National champion Justin Rose.
NICK WATNEY
Watney set a new Aronimink GC course record, firing an 8-under 62 in the third round of the AT&T National to enter the final round in a tie for first place. He also tied the tournament record shared by Anthony Kim and Hunter Mahan. This is the lowest round Watney has shot on the PGA TOUR, besting the 63 he shot in the final round of the 2011 Farmers Insurance Open earlier this season.
K.J. CHOI
Choi bounced back from a 37 on the front nine to shoot a 3-under par 32 on the back nine and move into solo third. Choi, No. 8 in the FedExCup standings, is making his 15th start of the season. He owns five top-10 finishes, including his eight-career victory at THE PLAYERS Championship, T3 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, T6 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, T7 at the Northern Trust Open and T8 at the Masters.

• Ricky's turn to "Ror"?: The 22-year old reigning PGA TOUR rookie of the year has a chance Sunday to send a notice to the golf world like his young counterpart Rory McIlroy did at the U.S. Open. Column
