12:26 p.m. ET
Chez Reavie, Kyle Stanley
Chez Reavie fell from first place to third place in the third round, but is still within striking distance of Striker at 17 under. Long hitter Kyle Stanley will try to add a win to his already impressively rookie season.
12:08 p.m. ET
Cameron Tringale, Dean Wilson
Tringale has birdied No. 17 at TPC Deere Run this week to move a shot behind Kodak leader Bill Lunde. An eagle would move him into a tie for first, and closer to the $1 million prize.
The fourth round of the John Deere Classic is set to begin. CBS will televise live action from 3 to 6 p.m ET.
WHAT TO WATCH IN ROUND 4: • FedExCup Race: Despite a pair of double bogeys, Mark Wilson managed a 3-under 68 in round three to remain in the top-5 headed into Sunday's final round. Wilson is the only player in the field that can take over Nick Watney's lead in the FedExCup standings. Wilson would need a win this week to take over Watney. Projections
Round 4 weather forecast Mostly sunny

Here are some of the players you'll see during Saturday's coverage on CBS: STEVE STRICKER Stricker is looking for his third straight multiple-win season on TOUR. He is currently the only golfer to have multiple wins in both 2009 and 2010. BRENDEN DE JONGE De Jonge is looking for his second top-10 finish of the season. In round three, he birdied five of his first nine holes, coupled with birdies at his last two to post an 8-under 63, tying his career PGA TOUR low round. CHEZ REAVIE Chez Reavie birdied four of his last six holes in Round 3 to get within three of Steve Strickers lead headed into the final round.
• Holding on: Stricker has previously held at least a share of the 54-hole lead 12 times, half of which he has parlayed into victory. Most recently, he led by three over 2007 John Deere Classic champion Jonathan Byrd at this year's Memorial Tournament and won by a stroke.
