Three-shot leads are usually comforting, except when they are at places like Sedgefield, where there have been a number of low-60s scores all week. That’s what Arjun Atwal will be dealing with come Sunday. He leads by three after a 65 Saturday, but there are nine players within four shots of his lead. And a few of those guys -- namely Lucas Glover, David Toms and Justin Leonard -- are savvy enough to not get rattled by the deficit.
As for Atwal, he’s done pretty much everything right this week -- he leads the field in birdies, is fourth in driving accuracy and fourth in putts per green in regulation. Obviously if he keeps that up, he should win.
A side story tomorrow will also be who played his way into or out of the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup ( click here for the projected standings). There will be a lot of jockeying throughout the leaderboard for that.
