The final round of the 2013 AT&T National begins Sunday — and if it's is anything like the first three, it should come down to the wire. Four players will begin the day tied for the lead, with 10 players opening the final round within three strokes.
As players compete for the $1.17 million first-place prize, they will do so in a bit of an usual Sunday format. Weather has already impacted play, and with a storm on the horizon, the PGA Tour moved tee times to earlier in the morning. Players will also be grouped in threesomes, sending them off both No. 1 and No. 10.
Bill Haas, who carded nine birdies on Saturday, is among the players tied for the lead at 7-under. He will play in the final pairing on Sunday, along with James Driscoll and Roberto Castro. After holding at least a share of the first- and second-round leads, Castro needed an 80-foot chip-in for par on No. 18 on Saturday to retain a share of the lead.
Andres Romero, the other player tied for the 54-hole lead, will tee off at 10:20 a.m. ET in a pairing with Jason Kokrak and Tom Gillis. Jordan Spieth was tied for the second-round lead, but a 3-over 74 dropped him to 4-over for the tournament. He'll still play in one of the final groups on Sunday, paired with Morgan Hoffmann and Brendan Steele.
The early start will impact the broadcast schedule, which is set to begin at 1 p.m. on the Golf Channel. Coverage will continue until 2:30 p.m. before switching over to CBS at 3 p.m. Barring a playoff or a delay, the final groups should finish their rounds around 3:30 p.m. That could lead to a tape-delayed finish on CBS, which is scheduled to broadcast until 6:30 p.m. An online simulcast of the CBS broadcast will also be available beginning at 3 p.m.
