It's a beautiful day in Memphis, Tennessee, at 89 degrees and the scores are not as low as the previous two days.

Faster greens as the sun bakes them and harder pin placements on the weekend have kept the scoring from going totally nuts on Saturday.

Lee Westwood, playing on my Yahoo Fantasy Golf Team this week, is hanging in there at eight-under after 12 holes. Westwood is tied with Robert Garigua and Robert Karlson, both players also at eight-under.

Tim Petrovic and Garrett Willis are one-over and two-over for the day so far, but trying to stick around for Sunday at seven-under for the tournament.

In Yahoo Fantasy I am staying ahead of all the experts for the season with another good week. Heath Slocum was activated for Round Four, replacing Zach Johnson, who is struggling a bit. Lee Westwood is in first, and my other B-player is Rory McIlroy, currently in 13th.

Ben Crane made it back to two-under for the tournament with a 69 today. He will grab me a few more points as well.

It looks to be Westwood on Sunday, as other experienced players are fading, and Westwood is certainly due.

Someone would have to go very low to jump up ahead of these leaders on Sunday. The greens should be fast on Sunday with no rain forecast.

Have a nice Sunday, and mow the grass. It's getting a bit thick, don't you think?
