Leonard, Mediate making moves

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Veterans Justin Leonard and Rocco Mediate are showing the young guns how it's done on Saturday at Sedgefield Country Club.

Leonard, who started the week ranked 157th in the FedExCup, has just made a 17-footer for birdie at the 10th hole to move to 9 under for the tournament. He started the round with four straight birdies, made the turn in 31 and is 5 under for the day.

Leonard likely needs to finish fourth or better to avoid missing the FedExCup Playoffs for the second straight hole. A year ago at Sedgefield, Leonard missed a par putt on the 72nd hole and ended up No. 126 in the standings.

Mediate is a two-time winner at Greensboro, although both of his wins came at Forest Oaks, not Sedgefield. Like Leonard, he made the turn in a bogey-free 31 and stands 9 under and three strokes off the pace set by Jimmy Walker through two rounds.

Mediate, who turns 50 in December, came in ranked 178th in the FedExCup and likely needs to finish second or better to make the Playoffs.
