A triple bogey for Bill Haas. Double bogeys for Andres Romero and Roberto Castro. They still wound up in a four-way tie for the lead Saturday in the AT&T National with James Driscoll, whose third round was pleasantly dull by comparison.

Tiger strong, Rory poor at Memorial

Charl Schwartzel didn't want to see a good round go to waste. A birdie on his final hole Thursday in the Memorial allowed him to feel good about his game, and it gave him the early lead.

No one needs to be reminded that this is the final Q-School that will offer PGA Tour cards. That fact has been noted innumerable times.
