2013 Hyundai Tournament of Champions leaderboard: Dustin Johnson holding off Brandt Snedeker charge

Christian Petersen

Dustin Johnson is holding onto the lead in Tuesday's final round, but Brandt Snedeker played a three-hole stretch in 4-under to move two back.

The leaders are now out on the course for the final round of the 2013 Hyundai Tournament of Champions, and Dustin Johnson is two shots clear of the field. Johnson has repeatedly stated the this week that he thinks 2013 could be a breakout year, and he spent a full week in Maui prepping for the annual season-opener at Kapalua. He's the best athlete on Tour, and likely had the least difficulty during Monday's 36-hole march. Johnson picked up a birdie on the third hole to move to 12-under for the tournament.

The player making the biggest move so far is Brandt Snedeker. Snedeker, the reigning FedExCup champion, rolled in birdies on Nos. 3 and 4. He then stuck his approach shot on the par-5 fifth hole, and converted the eagle putt to move to 10-under after the three-hole streak. If he gets hot with the putter, he is certainly capable of chasing down Johnson by the time they make the turn.

Steve Stricker is now in third place, three shots back at 9-under. Stricker is dealing with nerve pain in his leg, but still put together a charge on Monday as he attempts to defend his title here. Stricker carded a red number at the par-3 second hole to momentarily move two shots behind Dustin. With the final round progressing, it appears Johnson, Snedeker, and Stricker could be in a three-horse race as they distance themselves from the rest of the field.
