Rory Sabbatini had a very real shot at securing his second win in the Florida Swing ... but he damaged his hopes at the watery 13th at Copperhead. The 13th is the shortest par-3 on the course at 175 yards, but swirling winds and a pin cut on the back right are making the hole play tougher today.
Sabbatini got to the 13th tee box in 5 under for the day and 8 under for the week, but he drowned his tee shot and took a double bogey.
More evidence Sunday is going to be a real barn-burner: Despite the double bogey, Sabbatini is still only three shots back in a tie for 23rd.
