The Players Championship 2012 Leaderboard Update: Kevin Na Leads After 3 Rounds

A round with no bogeys has Kevin Na one up on Matt Kuchar at 12-under going into the final round at Sawgrass.

Kuchar had a one-stroke lead on Na coming to the signature 17th hole, but he struck his tee shot a bit fat and ended up splashing about five yards short of the island. He recovered with a shot that left him about eight feet from the hole for bogey, but that was enough to see him tied with Na. Na capitalized by parring the 17th and birdieing on the concluding 18th hole.

Rickie Fowler is in third three back of the lead at 9-under while Ben Curtis and Zach Johnson are tied for fourth at 7-under.

Na and Kuchar are the only two players to have posted three rounds in the 60s. We'll see if they can keep up the pace in tomorrow's final round.
