Fowler, Na Share Third-Round Lead at Players Golf; Woods 7 Back

May 12, 2012

Rickie Fowler and Kevin Na share the lead in the third round of the U.S. PGA Tour’s Players Championship. Tiger Woods trails by seven shots after shooting an even-par 72.

Fowler is 6 under par through 15 holes today and 9 under for the tournament. Na, who shared the overnight lead with Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar, is 1 under through five holes.

Kuchar is even par through five holes to sit in third place at 8 under. Johnson made an early bogey to drop to 7 under, tied for fourth with Blake Adams.

Woods had two birdies and two bogeys in his round today. The 14-time major winner made four straight birdies yesterday to avoid missing his second straight cut after failing to qualify for weekend play at last week’s Wells Fargo Championship.
