Players Championship 2011 Leaderboard: Peter Hanson's Terrific Round 3 Springs Him Near Top

All of a sudden, Peter Hanson is lighting up TPC Sawgrass. After experiencing some serious missteps in the first and second rounds, Hanson has sprung into a tie for 11th place on the Players Championship leaderboard.

As of this writing, Hanson is playing on the 14th hole; through the first 13, he's 6-under. He birdied the third, fourth, and fifth holes, and has avoided making the mistakes that plagued him earlier in the tournament -- the end of Round 2, which he ended with a double bogey and a bogey, particularly hurt him.

Thanks to his play on Saturday, though, Hanson currently stands at 6-under for both the day and the tournament. He sits four strokes behind the Players Championship leader, David Toms, who has yet to begin his third round. Toms is scheduled to tee off at 2:45 p.m. ET.
