ATLANTA -- A wide range of emotions, not coincidentally tied to scores shot Saturday during the third round of the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola, were reflected in tweets sent overnight by players competing at East Lake.
Luke Donald's 70 was his highest tally of the week but still left him in position for an historic double. He's 6 under and three shots off the lead – Donald would pocket the FedExCup's $10 million bonus if he can come from behind and win.
@LukeDonald That was a tough day out there today, had to fight really hard, tomorrow will be even tougher. Can't wait!
Bubba Watson continued his tumultuous relationship with East Lake -- firing a 79 on Saturday after shooting his career low of 64 the previous day. The killer was a quintuple bogey 9 at the 17th hole that included two bogeys in the water beside the green.
@bubbawatson All I can say or do is dust myself off & try to play better tomorrow! #eastlakewinning
And Y.E. Yang, who won the 2009 PGA Championship, has yet to break par at East Lake.
@Y_E_Yang When ur game is off like today, you lose all interest. Hope KJ plays well tomorrow. I am just going to play with abandon tomorrow.
@Y_E_Yang At least the wife is here tonight. That cheered me up a bit. Otherwise, it feels like kinda blank and wasted today
And here’s a tweet Sunday from a player who didn’t make the Playoffs finale!
@IanJamesPoulter It's a mans day today check it out. F1 this morning, then footie, Solheim cup, then 10 mil shootout.
