two couples having a chance to share the house this week at the simpson resident. the simpsons actually stayed at the watneys house during the las vegas tournament last fall. so it was just a matter of returning the favor. david: do you think there's any gamesmanship? you know, at 2:00 in the morning? jim: there was some talk that maybe the air-conditioning could be dropped extremely low in that guest area of the house. david: you know, the clock alarm comes on on a pollingtsa station. -- polka station. nick: put the sprinklers on early outside his brm. jim: would you do that david? david: oh, yes. i have an air compressor in my garage that will come on
garage that will come on intermittently. telling them that that's the room that the smelly dog always sleeps in. nick: ryan moore had this putt 40 feet. doesn't do much i would say. just judging all the different colors to have green. the burnt bits and the green bits. jim: wow, that is really ugly. it's been a lean year for nick. he's been very surprisingly -- it's been very surprisingly slim pickings for him. only one top 10 finish, after last year winning at two
prestigious sites. doral and then aron mick. nick: he started the year with a very strong grip and was blocking his shots right. that's what he's been working on with butch. trying to ease that hand around. that's quite a big change in your grip slowly through the season. jim: webb simpson. this is a good way to come in again, he's not birdied very often. but let's see what webb can do with it. it can get a little speedy. nick: yeah, if you just think of tracking it, as we would say. just get it on line and hope it's got the right speed. just crawl in. no. jim: he respected that speed too much. nick: yeah, that was a pretty short stroke on that one.
jim: watney with a bogey build on the way. nick: yeah. he needs to hole it for our mcilroy-fowler sunday afternoon. jim: your dream pairing. nick: so i'm pulling for him to hole it. jim: plus, who wants to send a guy off into the night with a six on the last hole? we've already seen it with stewart cink. nick: probably one of the few putts on the golf course you actually can just aim right half and firm. jim: watney's got it.
even with a penalty shot on the 18th, he escapes with a five. 36 out, 36 in. 72 for watney. he drops back into a tie with mcilroy for fourth. nick: so that does upset things, then. so that would be mcilroy-watney and then cink-fowler. what were we thinking with our math? jim: i told you. nick: got it all wrong. jim: webb simpson for a round of 69. he's going to to be the he's going to to be the overnight leader.
watney had the lead after friday night and now it will be simpson's lead tonight. it's going to be some final round tomorrow. we look forward to having you back with us. here's the lineup tonight on cbs -- jim nantz, nick faldo and the crew. we'll see you at 3:00 tomorrow back here in charlotte, north carolina.
