Butch's Babes Take Control!

Two of Butch Harmon's star pupils, Phil Mickelson and Nick Watney, hold a four shot lead after three rounds of the WGC - CA Championship. Overnight leader Mickelson shot 69 while Watney caught him with an impressive 67. Tiger Woods continued his slow improvement throughout the event with a round of 68. However, he was plagued by putting woes again as he missed a succession of birdie chances. We here at Golf Predictor will be interested to see will he continue to improve on the final day. You can see brief highlights here (with somewhat unusual commentary!):

Camilo Villegas continued his welcome return to form with a 69 and a share of third place. Kenny Perry's round was derailed when his tee shot unfortunately hit a rake on the 13th. The ball moved from its eventual lie as he was addressing it and he incurred a one shot penalty. Perry's ensuing double bogey took the wind out of his sails, but he's still well placed in tied 5th going in to the final round.
