Sabbatini makes turn with lead

Jerry Kelly may have provided the shot of the day with a 50-footer for birdie at the par-4 10th, but Rory Sabbatini has been solid all day with two birdies and nary a bogey on the scorecard through his first nine holes. As a result, Sabbatini leads by one over Kyle Stanley as he makes the turn at PGA National, where he made four birdies in the third round on Nos. 11, 13, 14 and 15.

While Sabbatini isn’t putting quite as well as he did on Friday when he took just nine putts over his final nine holes, he is making a decent share of them at 1.78 putts per green in regulation.

Others making moves here in Round 3: Matt Bettencourt is 4 under through 15 holes and now tied for fourth, while Charles Howell III has climbed 19 spots into a tie for 10th after a 67.
