The final groups are now on the course for the third round of the 2012 Barclays and leaders Nick Watney and Sergio Garcia got off to a fast start with birdies on the first hole. Garcia dropped a shot on the par-3 third hole after carding a bogey there for the third straight day. The putter betrayed Garcia yet again as he burned the edge on a hole that's playing fairly difficult on Saturday.
Watney, who was the regular season FedEx Cup points leader last season, is now in sole possession of the lead at 9-under. Watney has had a decidedly underwhelming summer as he tumbled from one of the best American players in the world to out of contention and off the radar for Ryder Cup consideration.
Tiger Woods is another player who dropped a shot at the par-3 third at Bethpage. Woods, who was bothered by a stiff back on Friday, is certainly not playing at 100 percent on Saturday and now stands at 4-under and is five shots back of leader Watney. Woods is the current FedEx Cup points leader but it's likely he'll relinquish that spot unless he catches fire over the final 27 holes.
