Crane closes gap to four strokes

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- If Spencer Levin thought Sunday would be an extended victory march, Ben Crane is showing him otherwise.

Crane Crane, who delighted the crowd at No. 16 in the third round when he donned his trademark helmet and rapped with his buddy Bubba Watson, has put his considerable golf skills on display on Sunday.

Crane, who started the day at 9 under and trailing by eight, has just narrowed the gap to four. He's played his first four holes in 4 under with birdie putts of 12 and 8 feet and a 33-footer for eagle at the second hole.

Crane is no stranger to coming from behind to win on Sunday. He made up five strokes back in the final round to claim his last victory at the 2011 McGladrey Classic.
