PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- There’s still a lot of golf to be played, but David Toms, at least at this point, is in control. He’s 13 under and leads by two over K.J. Choi through nine holes.
Graeme McDowell? He made a mess of the par-5 ninth, first hitting it left off the tee and into a shrub. He tried to punch out but his next shot went only a few feet. McDowell’s third landed in a greenside bunker and he got up-and-down from there for a bogey -- his third in the last four holes to turn in 2-over 38.
Then there’s Paul Goydos. He was on contention here in 2008 when he found the water on the 17th hole during the final round, but he’s been solid all week. Today he has three birdies over his last five holes to get to 10 under -- certainly not out of it yet.
Speaking of the 10th, play was stopped briefly at the 10th hole, where a woman had a seizure and medics attended to her.
