Mallinger soars with eagle

LA QUINTA, Calif. --  John Mallinger has just joined the group at the top of the leaderboard early during the final round of the Humana Challenge.

Mallinger just holed a wedge from 48 feet at the par-5 sixth hole for an eagle. The lanky Californian is now tied with Brandt Snedeker and Mark Wilson at 20 under, two strokes ahead of the field.

Mallinger struggled last season on the PGA TOUR, making just six cuts in 15 starts. When he didn't qualify for the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup, Mallinger opted to play the Nationwide Tour where he posted five straight top-10s, including two runner-up finishes.

The Long Beach State grad is looking for his first TOUR victory.
