Wyndham Championship 2012: Day 3 Leaderboard Updates, Highlights and More

The third round of the 2012 Wyndham Championship is in the books, and there are some familiar names atop the leaderboard.

Sergio Garcia currently has sole possession of first place after he shot a four-under 66 on Saturday. He's 14-under par for the tournament, and if he can hold onto his lead tomorrow, he will win his first PGA event since The Players Championship in May 2008.

Garcia has been very impressive at Sedgefield Country Club this week, but as Jason Sobel of The Golf Channel pointed out, the timing of his strong play shouldn't be much of a surprise.

Although Garcia is playing great, his lead is far from safe. Bud Cauley and Tim Clark are right behind him at 13-under, while Jason Dufner, Harris English and Carl Pettersson are each sitting at 12-under.

Here is how the top of the leaderboard currently looks.

 

Position Player To Par Today
1. Sergio Garcia -14 -4
T2. Bud Cauley -13 -4
T2. Tim Clark -13 -3
T4. Jason Dufner -12 -7
T4. Harris English -12 -2
T4. Carl Pettersson -12 -2
T7. Davis Love III -11 -4
T7. Matt Every -11 -2
T7. Jimmy Walker -11 +1

Highlights

Garcia had a great day, which is to be expected if you consistently hit gorgeous tee shots like his drive on No. 8.

 

Although Garcia's on top, Bobby Gates delivered the shot of the day with his unbelievable chip-in for birdie on No. 16.

 

Gates is currently tied for 17th at nine-under.

 

Twitter Reaction

Brian Wacker of PGATour.com dug up some interesting info about Garcia.  

Kelly Tilghman made an interesting point about Davis Love III and his Ryder Cup prospects.  

Bud Cauley will challenge Garcia for the trophy on Sunday, and the folks at Golf Manna are a little surprised.  

The final round of the 2012 Wyndham Championship will be held on Sunday, with leader Sergio Garcia teeing off at 2:05 p.m. ET.
