With the third round underway at the World Challenge presented by Northwest Mutual, Graeme McDowell holds a three-stroke lead over a trio of American tied for second.
McDowell is 10-under overall for 135, and 1-under just two holes into the third round.
Keegan Bradley, Jim Furyk and Bo Van Pelt are all tied for second at 138 strokes. Tiger Woods, who hosts the tournament, sits just back of them at 139 overall through four holes so far today. The tournament, in fact, is to benefit the Tiger Woods Foundation.
That quartet behind McDowell helps make up 15 Americans trying to catch the player from Northern Ireland. Among them are Bubba Watson, Brandt Snedeker and Webb Simpson, who are tied for 12th at one-under overall.
The challenge concludes tomorrow from Thousand Oaks, Calif. The winner out of the field of 18 will take home a nice $1.2 million from the $4 million purse.
