PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Brandt Snedeker and James Hahn are waging quite a battle in the day's final group.
Snedeker reached the par-5 second hole from 230 yards out and made a 4-footer for eagle after Hahn two-putted for birdie from 8. That moved the reigning FedExCup champ to 14 under while Hahn was 13 under.
Snedeker answered another Hahn birdie with one of his own at the fourth hole. The rookie converted from 10 feet to get to 14 under and Snedeker then made his from 9 to remain one stroke ahead.
Chris Kirk birdied his second and third holes to briefly pull into a tie for the lead. He remains at 13 under, though, and is two off the pace. Kirk's playing partner, Patrick Reed, is also 2 under for the day and 12 under for the tournament.
