6:30pm ET

Chad Campbell made a huge mistake on the par-3 16th.  He was in the back bunker with no green to work with.  Rather than playing safe, he went for the pin and left it in the bunker.  Then he missed the bogey putt.  He lost two shots to Kenny Perry, giving Perry the outright lead.  But while that was happening Cabrera was busy making birdie on #17 to tie for the lead at -11!  Boy is tomorrow going to be fun.

Furyk is in the house at -7 within striking distance.

5:00pm ET

The greens are soft and many players are throwing darts.

The leaders Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell have made the turn.  They’re both at -11 with Cabrera at -10 after he birdied #10.  Wait a sec.  Perry just made birdie so he’s alone in the lead now at -12 after 10 holes.

Stricker and Furyk are at -6 after 12 holes.  Mickelson birdied #15 to reach -5 while Tiger birdied #17 to get to -4.  I still think Tiger is too far back.

3:15pm ET

Tiger Woods has come back with a couple of birdies and is back to -2 after 9.  He doesn’t look like he’s controlling the spin of his approach shots though.  He’s spun several shots back too far and even off of greens.

The leaders Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell parred #1 and both birdied #2.  They’re now at -10.

Phil Mickelson is playing well and has it to -5 with a ton of other players including Stricker, Mahan, Furyk, Sabbatini, Katayama and Kim.

Cabrera back is at -8 and has shaken off the nerves after a birdie on #3.

1:30pm ET

Tiger Woods is likely toast for this year’s Masters. He double bogeyed #1.

Camilo Villegas is moving up the leaderboard, now at -4 after five holes.
