ARDMORE, PA. -- The players in the top 10 on the leaderboard are just beginning to tee off with Phil Mickelson and Hunter Mahan slated to tee off at 3:20 p.m. in the day's final group.
There is some positive movement on the leaderboard, though, as Ernie Els, who will defend his second British Open title next week, making birdie on his first two holes. He bogeyed the third but is now 5 over for the tournament and six shots behind Mickelson.
Lee Westwood has also moved to 5 over after making birdie at the second hole. The Englishman had a fast finish Saturday -- he started in the back nine and birdied his final four holes to shoot 69.
Tiger Woods, however, continues to head in the wrong direction. He birdied the first hole for the second straight day but drove OB at the par-5 second on the way to an 8 and ended up making the turn in 4 over.
World No. 2 Rory McIlroy is 2 over through 10 holes while reigning Masters champ Adam Scott has played 13 holes in 3 over and defending champion Webb Simpson is 2 over through 14.
