PALM HARBOR, Fla. – Kevin Streelman figured a good round Saturday would at least get him in the mix at the Tampa Bay Championship. It wound up giving him a share of the lead.
Streelman had a 6-under 65 and was tied for the lead with Justin Leonard (67) and George Coetzee of South Africa (68). But this tournament was wide open heading into the final day, with 16 players separated by only three shots.
Adam Scott had the lead for one hole until he fell apart, and so many others followed.
Nine players had at least a share of the lead on a warm, pleasant day on the menacing Copperhead course at Innisbrook. Jim Furyk and defending champion Luke Donald were well within range, as was 19-year-old Jordan Spieth of Texas.
