Ryan Palmer, Wesley Bryan tied atop Honda Classic leaderboard

Scott set for Honda defence

After firing a third round 67, the American star will take a 4-shot lead over Tyrell Hatton and a 6-shot lead over all others into Sunday's final round at The Honda Classic at PGA National Golf Club in South Florida.

Few folks noticed when Texan Ryan Palmer, now the world's 88th-ranked player, went away for four months, vanishing after tying for fourth at the BMW Championship in September and not showing up again on the first tee until last month's Sony Open in Hawaii.

"It's a daunting task, those three holes", said Palmer, who this year has twice played them in even par.

"I got to go play with Butch last Friday [and] it's kind of just been trending the right direction, " he said.

"I feel like I'm in a great spot". The current "best in golf" is not at PGA National this week — Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson, Hideki Matsuyama and Jordan Spieth are taking the week off or are injured.

There were those who believed, including Scott, that more major titles would follow. Coming off a run of three birdies on the previous six holes, Stefani had put himself in position to make the cut with a strong finish and didn't want to waste it. Today marked another step forward for the 40-year-old, who doesn't have any top-10 finishes and only made one cut in five previous PGA Tour events this season.

Mobile deploys LTE-U technology
If not for the controversy over potential interference, T-Mobile likely would have deployed LTE-U much earlier. This spring, cellphone carriers such as T-Mobile plan to start supporting a new kind of mobile data.

"But that doesn't mean I'm not striving to win other Masters tournaments or any other big championships". I need to get my skates on because it's getting tougher and tougher every year. "I ended up making bogey without really making a bad swing". I need about maybe six months to get there, " said Scott, who opened his Honda defense with a 2-under-par 68.

And Scott can hear the clock ticking. If he continues to excel on the greens over the next two days, he will be celebrating his first career win on the PGA Tour. He changed into a TaylorMade Spider putter, added an extra West Coast start (at last week's Genesis Open), and though he finished 49th, he said it was the best he'd putted in a year and a half. He isn't even the highest-ranked Aussie any more.

"My window might not be closing, but it's not wide open, either".

A year ago at the Honda Classic, Fowler shot a pair of 66s for 8-under and held the halfway-point lead through 36 holes.

He admits his new stroke is still something of a work in progress. "To go and be able to play on the teams I got to play on, from the Olympics to Ryder Cup, World Cup (he and USA teammate Jimmy Walker tied for second), finally getting to be a part of a winning Ryder Cup team - I don't look back and look at it as a bad year".

"I putted fairly well straight away and then very well at the start of (2016) and not very well since".
