Guthrie, Thompson Tied For Honda Classic Lead
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — PGA Tour rookie Luke Guthrie and Michael Thompson survived a tough day and shared the lead going into the final round of the Honda Classic.
Guthrie had a 1-over 71, which was no disgrace on a windy, cool Saturday at PGA National in which none of the last 20 players to tee off broke par. Thompson had a two-putt birdie on the par-5 18th hole for a 70 to join Guthrie at 8-under 202.
Lee Westwood and Geoff Ogilvy both rallied for a 70 and were two shots behind.
Tiger Woods was 3 under through eight holes but had to settle for a 70 after he couldn’t find a plugged ball in the bank, and making double bogey on the 17th. He was eight shots behind.
