The jostling atop the leaderboard at East Lake continues. Adam Scott is now the leader at 8 under after a 65 that has him one shot clear of K.J. Choi.
At one point, Choi led -- until Scott closed with back-to-back birdies. Choi wasn’t so bad himself of course with a 65 of his own. He’s trying to become just the first player to win both THE PLAYERS and the TOUR Championship in the same year.
Another shot back from Choi is Jason Day, who likewise led at one point on Friday. But he bogeyed the 17th and as a result shares third with Luke Donald.
Bubba Watson, meanwhile, had the day’s best round with a 64 to climb into a tie for fifth with three others, including Presidents Cup hopefuls Bill Haas and Keegan Bradley.
