Sunshine. Winds around 5 mph.
Here are some of the players you'll see during Sunday's coverage on CBS:
BO VAN PELT
Bo Van Pelt began the day four shots behind the leaders. He shot 1 over on the front nine, but caught fire on the back nine with a six-under 29 that gives him the lead heading into the final round. Van Pelt's 29 was one off his career nine-hole TOUR record of 28 that he shot on the front nine of the 2009 Mayakoba Golf Classic.
ANDRES ROMERO
Andres Romero made five birdies and two bogeys on his way to a 3-under 67 in Saturday's round despite hitting just eight of 18 greens. The Argentinian managed to salvage par or better on eight of 10 missed greens, averaging 4 feet 7 inches to the pin on chip shots. On the greens, he gained nearly four strokes on the field (3.827 strokes gained putting), and needed just 22 putts in the third round.
JOHN DALY
John Daly is making his 146th PGA TOUR start since his last win at the 2004 Farmers Insurance Open. A large portion of Daly's success this week can be attributed to his performance around the greens. Entering the week, Daly ranked 173rd on TOUR for scrambling from around the greens (52 percent - 173rd on TOUR). However, hes had success this week salvaging par or better on 15 of 20 missed greens (75 percent), and leads the field in scrambling.

FedExCup bubble: There are just 5 weeks remaining in the 2011 FedExCup Regular season. The top 125 players in the FedExCup standings after the Wyndham Championship will advance to the PGA TOUR Playoffs. A good finish would help Sean O'Hair (147th) and John Daly (222nd) move close to the all-important top 125. Projected points
