Paired in the final group, Luke Guthrie and Michael Thompson went head-to-head against each other and wind-whipped PGA National in Saturday's third round of the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
They get to do it all over again Sunday.
Thompson shot an even-par 70 and Guthrie a 1-over 71 to share the lead at 8-under 202. That put them two shots ahead of Lee Westwood (70) and Geoff Ogilvy (70). Rickie Fowler (69) and Charles Howell III (71) were another shot back.
"I'm proud of the way I played," said Guthrie, who closed with eight solid pars. "I played smart, solid golf, stayed away from the trouble."
Thompson closed with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 18th.
"It's like the conditions of the rough are like the U.S. Open, but we have the wind of a British Open," said Thompson, who tied for second behind Webb Simpson at the 2012 U.S. Open at the Olympic Club. "You have to take your medicine and take your bogeys but eliminate the doubles."
Tiger Woods was eight shots back after posting his third straight 70. He went out in 3-under 32 but came home in 3-over 38. He took a double bogey on the par-3 17th when his tee shot plugged into the bank short of the green, and he never found the ball.
"I thought realistically 5 or 6 under would be a good score, and I thought if I post that, I would be within six or seven shots of the lead going into tomorrow at worst," Woods said of his early play.
