Weekend play is underway in Greensboro with some of the game's biggest names fighting to stay alive to advance to the FedEx Cup Playoffs. The biggest movers on Saturday are Justin Leonard and Angel Cabrera, who are both setting blistering paces on the outward nine at Sedgefield.
Stirring the echoes of Ian Poulter last week at Kiawah, Leonard started his round with four straight birdies to move to 8-under for the championship. Leonard's best days are certainly behind him, but he can get as hot as anyone with the putter and make a charge. He's currently in position to play his way into the FedEx Cup, but he'll need to close strong on the Donald Ross layout over the rest of the weekend, and hope the leaders don't post a number to run away from him.
Cabrera can also move into the top 125 and play the Barclays next week if he really turns things on over the next 27 holes. He's 5-under through his first 13 holes, currently projected to stay well on the outside of the playoff qualifiers. The easygoing Argentinian has yet to make a bogey in the third round, and the big hitter still has a par-5 ahead of him to add another red number coming in.
Y.E. Yang, who's currently inside the top 125, is 3-under through his first seven holes. Yang has struggled a bit since beating out Tiger Woods for the PGA at Hazeltine, but the Korean is one of the more unflappable players on Tour. He's certainly capable of going on a run and keeping his season alive in the week-to-week do-or-die format.
