Update: Horschel's lead vanishes

What was once a three-shot lead for Billy Horschel is now gone.

Horschel is 1 over through his first four holes and hasn't come close to giving himself a look at birdie. His lone bogey came on the par-4 fourth, where he missed the green right then took three more to get home, missing a 12-footer to save par.

Meanwhile, Martin Laird has sped up the leaderboard with four birdies in his last five holes to get to 9 under and a share of the lead -- for now.

Four others are two back, including Rory McIlroy ad Jim Furyk.

A win would get Horschel into the Masters next week, and it would be his first on the PGA TOUR.

But there's a very long way to go, and Horschel has not been great in final rounds this season. Five of his nine final rounds have been in the 70s or higher, including an 85 at Bay Hill and a 75 in San Diego.
