Kodak: Merritt surges to lead

No matter what, rookie Troy Merritt will go into the season finale with at least a share of the lead in the $1 million winner-take-all Kodak Challenge.

The rookie eagled the par-5 16th after sticking his approach shot to just 16 feet on the 560-yard par-5. Merritt had nothing to lose; he was already 1 over on the day and sliding down the leaderboard on a tough final round at TPC Summerlin.

Rickie Fowler, who has led the Kodak Challenge standings for most of the year, will play the hole later today and can tie Merritt with an eagle of his own. Fowler nearly eagled the hole in the first round, but his birdie putt just slipped out of the cup.

"We definitely know it's the Kodak hole, trying to play it the best we can," Fowler said earlier this week.
