ORLANDO, Fla. -- That once two-shot lead Martin Laird had? Gone.
Laird just fell to 8 under after his third bogey of the front nine as he failed to save par from a greenside bunker on No. 9.
At almost the same time, Steve Marino birdied No. 10, where he stuck his approach shot to inside 4 feet before rolling in the putt to get to 2 under on the day and 9 under for the week.
Justin Rose and K.J. Choi might not be out of it either. Both are quickly running out of holes, but both are also 6 under and just three shots back.
David Toms, meanwhile, fell back to 6 under after a double bogey on No. 8, where he was forced to pitch back into the fairway after an errant tee shot then missed the green long on his approach.
It’s been a wild weekend at Bay Hill and that seems to be continuing today. -- Brian Wacker
