UPDATE NO. 10 (7:12 p.m. ET): Bubba Watson is your 54-hole leader. Here’s your recap for the day:

UPDATE NO. 9 (7:05 p.m. ET): Patrick Cantlay drains a BOMB at 18 to post at 9 under and sit in solo second.

UPDATE NO. 8 (6:15 p.m. ET): Bubba bogeyed the 15th to fall to 9 under. His lead is one. He’s on the par-5 17th now as he looks to close out the 54-hole lead.

UPDATE NO. 7 (5:37 p.m. ET): DJ fires a 7-under 64 to rocket 46 spots to a tie for seventh. He’s only four back. That’s despite posting a triple bogey early in Round 1. He’s played his last 28 holes in 10 under.

UPDATE NO. 6 (5:02 p.m. ET): Phil Mickelson birdies 18 for a 4-under 67. He’s now 5 under and T-9. He’ll enter the final round five back, if 10 under is the lead by day’s end.

UPDATE NO. 5 (4:35 p.m. ET): Bubba birdies No. 10 to move to 10 under. He leads alone by one. Dustin Johnson has made an eagle and three birdies in his last six holes to move to 6 under for the day and 5 under overall. He’s five back with a few to play in Round 3.

UPDATE NO. 4 (4:10 p.m. ET): Haotong Li with a hole-in-one at No. 6! He’s now 3 under. Bubba Watson took the solo lead with a birdie at No. 9 to move to 9 under. But Kevin Na birdied the 10th to tie him again.

UPDATE NO. 3 (3:45 p.m. ET): Bubba Watson, fresh off getting stuffed by T-Mac, is also lighting it up. He almost copies Na, eagling No. 1 and then using consecutive birdies to tie the lead at 8 under. His birdies, though, came on Nos. 6 and 7. Regardless, Bubba and K-Na are now co-leaders at 8 under.

UPDATE NO. 2 (3:10 p.m. ET): Kevin Na is feeling it! He eagled the first and then birdied Nos. 5 and 6, and he’s tied for the lead at 8 under!

Also, look below to see that Rory McIlroy failed to drive the green at the par-4 10th because he went long off the tee … with an iron. He still birdied, though, to move to 3 under.

UPDATE NO. 1 (2:30 p.m. ET): Patrick Cantlay birdied No. 1 to take the outright lead at 8 under, but Graeme McDowell is now your solo leader at 8 under after a two-shot swing.

McDowell birdied No. 2 to move to 8 under, while Cantlay bogeyed it to fall to 7 under. Round 3 action is starting to get interesting!
