2012 Players Championship Scores: Kevin Na Seizes The Lead, Kuchar And Fowler Not Far Behind

Matt Kuchar looked very good for most of the third round of the 2012 Players Championship, but late in the day he made a few mistakes at inopportune times and Kevin Na was there to capitalize. Na shot par on 13 of the first 15 holes, and when Kuchar went 1-over on the last four holes, Na went 2-under to seize the lead. Given that they are separated by a single stroke, you could point to the legendary hole 17 as the difference maker. Kuchar lost a stroke when his first shot came up short and went into the drink, but Na managed to land just inside, and with his ball settling at the very edge of the green he managed par.

Third place is occupied by Rickie Fowler, who was the talk of the tournament as he shot 14 places up the leaderboard. He posted a 66 on the day, leaving him at 9-under overall and with great momentum heading into the final round. Na's momentum isn't so bad either, but Kuchar is going to have to shake off his late struggles and try to rebound in Sunday's round.
