|Only thing Reed interested in lifting is WGC-Cadillac title (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: March 8, 2014, 8:17 pm]
By Steve Keating DORAL, Florida (Reuters) - Patrick Reed would rather lie in bed and watch television than go to the gym and does not watch he eats yet was able to muscle his way past fitness addicts such as Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy on Saturday to take the lead into the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

(Reuters) - PGA Tour rookie Chesson Hadley stalled on the back nine before clinging to a one-stroke lead over Danny Lee after the third round at the $3.5 million Puerto Rico Open on Saturday. New Zealander Lee (66) birdied the final three holes to jump into second place on 15-under, with Americans Jason Gore and Jonathan Byrd two shots behind.

McIlroy moves the wrong way in 3rd round at Doral (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: March 8, 2014, 4:36 pm]
On the easiest day of the Cadillac Championship, Rory McIlroy moved the wrong way. And in a flash, his hopes at Doral were just about gone. A great recovery and chip-in birdie at the par-4 18th salvaged at least the ending, but McIlroy knew the third round was an opportunity lost. ''Couldn't hole a putt for birdie, so may as well chip one in,'' McIlroy said.
Reed builds 2-shot lead at Doral; Tiger in the mix (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: March 8, 2014, 4:18 pm]
Patrick Reed had a 3-under 69 in tamer conditions Saturday at Doral to take a two-shot lead into a final round that will prominently feature Tiger Woods for the first time this year. He did enough right on the closing holes to keep his distance over PGA champion Jason Dufner (68) and Hunter Mahan (71).

American Patrick Reed will take a two shot lead into the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship while Tiger Woods stormed into contention with the lowest round of the tournament on Saturday. Reed, who had a share of the four-way overnight lead, fired a three-under 69 to secure a two-shot advantage over compatriots Jason Dufner (68) and Hunter Mahan (71) into Sunday. The 23-year-old, however, might be looking a little further down the leaderboard where Woods is one shot further back after a sizzling 66 left the world number one well-placed to make a run at an unprecedented eighth WGC-Cadillac title.

Poulter and Matsuyama end spat with handshake (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: March 8, 2014, 12:18 pm]
Ian Poulter and Hideki Matsuyama shook hands before teeing off together in the third round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship on Saturday after the young Japanese golfer apologized to the Briton for damaging a green the previous day. Matsuyama incurred Poulter's wrath when he missed a short putt and slammed his putter into the 13th green during Friday's second round. The Englishman, who was playing in the group behind Matsuyama, later took to Twitter and labeled the 22-year-old Matsuyma an "idiot", saying he had "left a crater in the green for others to putt over." Paired together for the third round, Matsuyama sought out Poulter on the practice range on Saturday morning and, with the help of an interpreter, apologized to his playing partner as the two men shook hands.

4-way tie for the lead after a day of survival (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: March 8, 2014, 1:48 am]
Dustin Johnson was one of the few players who looked like he was having a good time at the Cadillac Championship. It explains why Tiger Woods could follow his highest score ever at Doral by hitting three balls in the water, and still be only six shots out of the lead. Brandt Snedeker was in the middle of the seventh fairway and chose to lay up short of the green. Bubba Watson laid up on a par 3.
Players vent about tough conditions at Doral on social media (PGA) [Yahoo! Sports: March 7, 2014, 10:32 pm]
The scores posted Friday at windswept Doral were eye-popping -- the low score was 70 and the average score was almost 76. Only three players broke par on the day, and only four are under par through 36 holes. And then there's this: 63 players played the second round, and hit 113 balls into the water. So, needless to say, the gentlemen who endured that day to remember/forget had plenty to say about their experience. A lot of them took to Twitter to vent -- and several LPGA Tour stars chimed in as well. Here's a rundown of some of the best comments we saw:It be like that sometimes, Phil. ...

Blue Monster has golfers seeing red (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: March 7, 2014, 6:49 pm]
By Steve Keating DORAL, Florida (Reuters) - The Blue Monster had some players seeing red after a tough day at the WGC-Cadillac Championship on Friday left only four golfers below par at the midway point of the $9 million event. Prior to the opening round golfers had sung the praises of the redesigned course but many were singing a different tune after whipping winds allowed the Blue Monster to show its true colors. Business magnate Donald Trump, who has poured $250 million into renovating the Trump National Doral Resort, hailed architect Gil Hanse's creation as big, bold and fair. Few have disputed Trump's 'big' and 'bold' assessment of his property but some like Briton Luke Donald were left questioning the fairness of the layout.
Four share midway lead as Blue Monster shows teeth (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: March 7, 2014, 5:41 pm]
By Steve Keating DORAL, Florida (Reuters) - American Hunter Mahan eagled his penultimate hole to grab a share of the halfway lead at the WGC-Cadillac Championship on Friday as the Blue Monster showed its true colors, with more than 100 golf balls ending up in the water. On a grueling day that some players described as a survival test, Mahan eagled the par five eighth in fading light for a second round of two-over 74 that left him tied for the lead with his compatriots Dustin Johnson (74), Patrick Reed (75) and Matt Kuchar (74) at one-under par. Northern Irishmen Rory McIlroy (74) and Graeme McDowell (71), Italian Francesco Molinari (75) and Welshman Jamie Donaldson, who posted the low round of the day with a two-under 70, were all lurking one shot further back.
World's top 3 struggle, yet still in Cadillac mix (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: March 7, 2014, 5:26 pm]
Between putting balls in the water - which they all did at least once Friday, Woods doing so four times and finding a way to laugh about it afterward - and fighting off frustration on a day where 30 mph wind blew steadily across Trump National Doral, the trio found a way to hang around. Which, frankly, was what Friday was all about.
James Driscoll ties course record 63 to lead in Puerto Rico (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: March 7, 2014, 5:23 pm]
(Reuters) - PGA Tour journeyman James Driscoll tied his own course record to earn a one-stroke lead after the second round of the $3.5 million Puerto Rico Open on Friday.

New Zealander Danny Lee (68) was among a group of four players at nine-under, while first round leader Brian Stuard (71) slipped five strokes behind.

Nead custom putters combine beauty and performance (PGA) [Yahoo! Sports: March 7, 2014, 4:27 pm]
While the Scotty Cameron may be the most sought after, there are other companies that deserve a look, especially if you want something that is uniquely yours. One of those is Nead Custom Putters. The Charlotte-based company is owned by Gene Nead, crew chief of the No. 98 Phil Parsons Racing team from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, who began building putters as a hobby during his "quiet time" away from the track. "I really never thought of it as business until the last few years... it was just my quiet time."
