Can Levin get breakthrough win?

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open got under way as scheduled on Sunday and the final group of Spencer Levin, Webb Simpson and Bubba Watson has just teed off.

Now, for the burning question of the day: Will Keegan Bradley put on his New England Patriots jersey when he gets to the 16th hole?

More importantly, though, for Spencer Levin, we'll be watching to see if the 27-year-old Californian can win his first PGA TOUR event.

Levin is 17 under and takes a six-stroke lead in to the final round. It's the largest advantage since Rory McIlroy built an eight-shot cushion through three rounds at Congressional Country Club and went on to win the U.S. Open.

Webb Simpson, a two-time winner in 2011, is back where he left off, contending again, alone in second at 11 under. Simpson is looking for his eighth top-10 finish dating back to his breakthrough win last year at the Wyndham Championship -- he's got two wins, a playoff loss and a third place finish during that stretch.

Bubba Watson, who lives in Scottsdale, is 10 under and tied with PGA TOUR rookie John Huh. Huh is looking for his second straight top-10 finish.

A glance at the leaderboard shows there are some birdies out there on TPC Scottsdale Sunday, too. Jarrod Lyle, who was the final alternate to make the field on Tuesday, has birdied four of his first five holes and moved to 9 under for the tournament.
