Bubba Watson leads the Genesis Open after round three sitting at -10 under par.

Bubba was Bubba today starting out with an eagle 3 on the par 5 first hole.

He rounded out the first nine with 3 more birdies for a 5 under par 30. The back nine was solid with 2 birdies and a lone bogey for a -1 under par 35.

The whole Riviera CC is tough but when the back nine, which has the toughest holes, starts to get dry it crusts up and most people found it to be a real test today.

Tomorrow we are expecting a high of only 60 degrees. That will keep the ball from flying so far and of course will only play havoc around the greens also.

Bubba played in a celebrity basketball game last night and really enjoyed himself.

He admitted that he was only going to play soft so he wouldn’t get hurt.

It must have worked because his team won and he moved into first place at the golf tournament.

Bubba and Cameron Smith tied for the low rounds today with -6 under par 65’s.

Patrick Cantlay the amazing pro from Long Beach admitted he had to stay in a hotel this week even though he lives not too far away but with L.A. traffic he would have to leave 2 hours or so early.

This young man, who was the top amateur in the world, has serious game.

He sits alone in second place with a -2 under par round of 69 today.

He is anxious to play tomorrow but when he gets to the course his patience kicks in and all he is focused on is winning.

Cantlay was amazing on the greens today.

Most putts the fellows were missing were made by Patrick! It was an amazing sight. A centimeter or two one way or another and several of his putts would have been missed.

Glad to see he is playing well.

There is a really neat 4 way tie for 3rd place with Cameron Smith, Kevin Na, Tony Finau, & Graeme McDowell all tied at -8 under par.

Going to be a very interesting day on Sunday. Fairways and greens is what it’s going to take to win this event!
