Thanks to everyone who joined and followed. It was another fun day of golf although no one really moved anymore into contention. It should be interesting tomorrow and I'll be back to do this one more time starting at 6:00 am ET.
Have a great Saturday night everyone!
Adam Scott, should he win, will be the 16th different champion in 16 majors. It would also be his first major so it sounds about right.
I said coming into today that Adam Scott was the favorite and he only solidified that belief for me. I don't expect anyone to catch him but I really only see Graeme McDowell being able to catch him.
McDowell is four back and it will be tough. I don't think he catches him but he is so consistent. I'd love the drama of Tiger coming from behind but I just don't think he has enough birdies in him. The best scenario for Tiger is wind and weather getting the best of the field and him just holding firm for another 67 or 68.
Scott's birdie try comes up just short but he taps in for par. He will be the 54-hole leader at -11. He leads by four shots heading into Sunday.
Snedeker makes a great birdie to get back to -7! What a way to finish his round!
Huge ovation for the leader, Scott walking up to the 18th green. He has had a sensational three days.
Scott's second is on the green but well short of the hole. Snedeker reaches the green as well but also far from the hole.
Olson misses the par putt and makes bogey to finish at -4 after today. He played well, just had a couple really bad holes.
Olesen's ball is sitting right up against the clubhouse but he hits it up on the green within 10 feet. Tiger's birdie try short once again. He taps in and finishes with a disappointing day, staying at -6.
Snedeker hits a nice tee shot down the middle. Scott follows with another gorgeous drive.
Tiger's second on the 18th is on the green almost in the same spot as Els and McDowell. Olesen hits his off the back of the green.
Snedeker hits his bunker shot first and it is perfect, stopping just a couple feet past the hole. Scott follows with another perfect one, a couple feet past the hole on the other side.
Scott hits his second from the rough into the far greenside bunker. Snedeker puts his into a bunker on the opposite side.
Olesen hits way left but ends up in the shorter rough. Tiger's tee shot hits the fairway again down the left side.
Tiger leaves his long birdie putt well short, no gimme for par. He holds on for par to stay at -6. Olesen drops his birdie to get to -5!
Snedeker hits a nice tee shot down the middle and Scott follows in the first cut on the right side. Both in good shape to start No. 17.
Snedeker's birdie try finds the bottom and he gets back to -6! Olesen hits a great approach to set up a birdie opportunity.

Scott's second is on the green with a tough birdie putt ahead. Snedeker follows with a great shot, maybe half the distance of Scotts.
Tiger badly misses his birdie putt. Scott off the tee is right down the middle once again. McDowell's second at 18 gets hole-high and inside 20 feet from the hole.
Ernie Els makes another par at No. 18 and finishes at -5. Great round for Ernie. Tiger's second is on the green about 12 feet from the hole. Scott with the birdie putt and it's just short. He'll stay at -11.
McDowell looking for another birdie and he finds it! He moves into second place at -7!
Scott's second is great, bouncing up to the center of the green, maybe 15 feet from the hole.
