LA JOLLA, Calif. -- Consecutive bogeys have proven costly for Kyle Stanley as his lead now stands at just three strokes with six holes remaining.
Of course, two of those are par 5s, which play right into Stanley's hands. He's leading the field in driving distance with an average of 310.1 yards and he's played the par 5s in 12 under.
Stanley is 19 under and playing the 602-yard 13th right now. Brandt Snedeker, who is two groups ahead of Stanley, made a 3-footer on the same hole to narrow the gap to three.
Snedeker is 5 under through 13 holes and has yet to make a bogey on Sunday. The Vanderbilt product made up five and six strokes, respectively, on the final day when he won the 2007 Wyndham Championship and the 2011 Heritage.
John Rollins, who is even for the day, is six shots off the pace.
