PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. -- The 10th hole had been pretty darn good to Bill Haas of late. Until Sunday, that is.
After all, that's where he rolled in a 45-foot birdie putt to beat Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley in the playoff last year. Haas had played the driveable par 4 in 3 under this week, too, including an eagle on Saturday.
Sunday, though, Haas drove it left and sent his second shot across the green into the bunker. When he was unable to get up and down for par, Haas fell a shot behing Hunter Mahan and John Merrick, who now lead at 11 under.
Haas, who led by three entering the final round, is now tied at 10 under with his two playing partners, Webb Simpson and Charl Schwartzel, along with Fredrik Jacobson.
