Rory Sabbatini still has a shot at his second win of the season.

Rory Sabbatini is hoping his 14 under at least makes a playoff. And the way Quail Hollow is playing Sunday, it just might.

Sabbatini fired off seven birdies against no bogeys Sunday, polishing off a 65 that had just 26 putts.

"Hopefully it's close to good enough. We'll see what happens," Sabbatini said. "The course was firmer and faster today. It's just in fantastic condition. They've outdone themselves this weekend giving us a golf course that's fantastic.

"The greens are about as good as you could ever imagine putting on. If you hit the ball in the right spots, give yourself some opportunities at birdies, you know, as long as you're hitting good putts, they're going to go in. That's how good the greens are."

Sabbatini made only two bogeys over the weekend after barely making the cut. He had only five birdies the first two days, then fired off 12 over the weekend.

"I'm very pleased with the way I played, and I didn't make it a situation that somebody has got to give the tournament to me today," Sabbatini said. "I played well, and if they beat me, they've out‑played me this week, so I have nothing to hang my head about."
