Dustin Johnson hit a bit of a speed bump as he made the turn in the final round of the 2013 Hyundai Tournament of Champions, but the long-hitting South Carolinian still holds a two-shot lead with nine holes to play. Johnson has been in cruise control the past two days, holding a multi-shot lead throughout Tuesday's final round. But on No. 9, he pulled driver out of the bag and sent it way right off the tee. DJ immediately teed up a provisional and his first ball was not found in the brush down the right side. He carded his first bogey of the day on the hole, falling to 13-under.
Brandt Snedeker made the biggest charge early on Tuesday, playing four straight holes in 5-under to move into second place. But Snedeker dropped a shot on each of the final three holes on the front side to fall back to the pack, yielding second place to Steve Stricker.
Stricker picked up a shot on Johnson after the front nine, moving to 11-under with birdies on the final two outward holes. Stricker is just trying to keep up with bombed drives of his playing partner, attempting to make up strokes around the green to defend his title.
Bubba Watson also made the turn with a birdie on No. 9, closing to within four shots of Johnson. With two more par-5s ahead of him, Bubba could get hot on the back side and make a charge. Both Watson and Keegan Bradley are tied for third at 9-under, four shots back.
