Steve Stricker, Johnathan Byrd and Robert Garrigus share the lead at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii.  They all sit at -18 for the tournament. Unless someone else in the field shoots a serious lights-out score, one of these three should be collecting the winner’s check and the ticket back to this tournament in 2012.

Steve Stricker

Having watched all three rounds so far I have to say that Steve Stricker’s short game is as good as it gets.  I’d love be have the simplicity of his swing and the accuracy he has under 100 yards.

Garrigus and Byrd both are obviously solid.  It may come down to the player who makes one fewer bad swings.  Just one.
