Keegan Bradley and Graeme McDowell appear to be in a two-man race on Sunday at the 2012 World Challenge.
The full, but limited field is now on the course for the final round of the 2012 World Challenge, and Keegan Bradley is making a charge at leader Graeme McDowell. Bradley had to fend off jeers from the crowd this weekend, as one fan called him a "cheater" for using a belly putter. He said the taunts would motivate him, and he appears to be on a mission early in the final round of a tournament loaded with the world's best. Bradley is 2-under through his first five holes and is now just one shot back of McDowell.
McDowell matched Bradley with a birdie on No. 2 to move to 14-under for the tournament. The Northern Irishman is attempting to become the only repeat World Challenge winner not named Tiger Woods. McDowell stared down Woods here two years ago to edge out the tournament host.
It will take a serious hot streak for Woods to chase down the leaders, as he's currently seven shots back with just 11 holes to play. The players are dealing with rainy, wet conditions in Southern California which could inhibit a birdie charge on the back nine. At this point, it's likely a two-horse race between Bradley and McDowell, with Bo Van Pelt four shots back in third place.
