PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. - Charlie Wi played bogey-free at Spyglass Hill for a 3-under 69 to build a 3-shot lead Saturday in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Tiger Woods ran off five birdies in a six-hole stretch early in his round and had a 5-under 67 that put him 4 shots behind going into the final round, the closest he has been to the 54-hole lead in a regular PGA Tour event since the 2010 Masters. Wi, winless in 162 previous PGA Tour events, was at 15-under 199. Phil Mickelson managed to stay in contention despite playing the par 5s at Pebble Beach in 1-over par. He saved par on the 18th for a 70. That put him in a tie for fourth, 6 shots behind.

Even after missing the 17th green with an approach shot from the middle of the fairway and then needing two chips before making bogey, Flesch won the Colonial yesterday with an 11-under 269 total, one stroke ahead of Chad Campbell....

The trophy Ian Poulter is taking home from the Match Play Championship is called the "Walter Hagen Cup. " For his first win on American soil, perhaps that's only fitting. Hagen, among golf's greatest players with 11 majors, was regarded as much for his snappy attire as his record four straight PGA Championships when they were match play. The Haig would have liked this spunky Englishman. Poulter put on a short-game clinic yesterday in Marana, Ariz., and led over the final 28 holes on his way to a 4-and-2 victory over Paul Casey in an all-England final at the first World Golf Championship of the year.

Scott Verplank never felt he owed critics an explanation for being selected to the Ryder Cup team with a captain's pick. But just in case, he can show them his trophy from the Canadian Open. Verplank came up with two big putts to offset a few scary moments and won golf's third-oldest national championship yesterday in Montreal for his first victory of the year. It couldn't have come at a better time. "Obviously, I'm playing OK," said Verplank, who closed with a 3-under-par 67 and won by three strokes over Bob Estes and Joey Sindelar.

Bart Bryant spent 20 years trying to prove he belonged among the best, often laying awake at night wondering if three surgeries and too many trips to Q-school were a sign he was wasting his time. Winning the Texas Open last fall was the first step. Validation came yesterday at the Memorial. Bryant somehow salvaged par from inside a hazard on the edge of the creek on the 18th hole, held off crowd favorite Fred Couples by one shot and had an audience with Jack Nicklaus, the tournament host who was duly impressed with what he saw at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio.
