Round 3 Preview

Tiger Woods is looking like he will challenge for the lead in the third round after shooting to a six-under after two. However, Brandt Snedeker and Adam Scott hold the lead right now at 10-under and nine-under, respectively. 

Barring a surge from Tiger, Snedeker and Scott will continue to hold the lead heading into the fourth and final round. Unexpectedly, some of the bigger names had poor days. Rory McIlroy is currently sitting in a two-over hole that will be trouble for him to get out of. Fox News recorded him saying:

"I was playing pretty scrappy," said McIlroy. "I feel like I'm actually playing some good golf, hitting some good shots. It's just frustrating when you can't shoot the scores to reflect that. I've got another two days to try and play well."

This seems to be the overall motto of the field. There are some of the smaller names and not as talented golfers leading the tournament due to the extremely unique conditions. The muddy conditions are ideal for certain golfers and have led to some extremely low scores this year (h/t Bill Dwyer of the L.A. Times).
