Leaders look ahead to third round

SAN FRANCISCO -- Tiger Woods, Jim Furyk and David Toms are tied for the 36-hole lead at the Olympic Club. At 1 under, they are the only three golfers under par, two shots clear of the rest of the field. Here are their thoughts heading into Saturday's third round:

TIGER WOODS: "Supposed to be the hottest day, I think almost 80, and depends on whether Mike (Davis, USGA Executive Director) and his staff put a little water on this golf course how it's going to play. ... It will be interesting to see if they make it scorable or they're going to really test us."

JIM FURYK: “Obviously it's going to get even more probably firmer and faster and even more of a stern test for the weekend. ... It can snowball very quickly here. It's tough to kind of put a tourniquet on it and stop the bleeding and get the momentum changed back in the right direction at this golf course ... There's not a lot of let up.”

DAVID TOMS: "I have to drive the ball a little bit better over the weekend than I did the first two days, but can I do that. It's usually one of my strengths. So I think I can do that. And the golf course is not playing too long. The only issue is maybe having enough spin to get to some of the pins when it firms up. But then I'll have to just play away from them and try to use my putter to my advantage."

Now it’s your turn. How do you think the third round will play out?
