Tune in at 3:00 PM ET for final round coverage of the Humana Challenge. Ryan Kelly will be liveblogging for your enjoyment.
Hello and welcome to theScore's ongoing coverage of the PGA Tour. Today we present the final round of the Humana Challenge, the first full field of the year on the mainland of the United States.
Buoyed by a pair of eagles in his third round, two-time winner on Tour Scott Stallings slept on a five-shot 54-hole lead at -22.
While a few players are already going low today -- Kevin Chappell is 8-under through 12, moving into a share of second -- Stallings has kept pace. He's -3 through 4 holes, to hit -25, and maintain his 5-stroke advantage.
There is a pack of golfers at -19, including Matt Kuchar and Charles Howell III.
If anyone is going to catch Scott Stallings, they're going to need his help. He hasn't been too eager to give shots back this week, either.
In fact, through 58 holes he has 21 birdies, 2 eagles and ZERO bogeys or worse.
Par 4 4th - With split tees today, Kevin Chappell is in the group behind Stallings. He has a putt of some 8-feet or so that would pull him within 4 and he cashes-in. Chappell now -9 on the day, -21 for the championship.
Par 4 7th - Despite missing the green to the right, Gay has a good lie and some green to work with and he plays it wonderfully, chipping-in for a birdie to keep him in a share of second.
Par 3 5th - While he found the green with his tee ball at the long par 3, Stallings has a 25-30-footer for birdie and must get it up and over a ridge. He didn't keep it high enough to threaten the hole, but it settles about 2 and 1/2 feet away. So he should be able to keep his bogey-free run going. AND he does, with the short par-saver.
Par 3 5th - Chappell with a beautiful approach to the 239-yard hole cut on the right. He starts it at the middle of the green, and works it left-to-right to get it back to the hole location. It lands just short and releases to pin-high about 12-15-feet right of the flag.
Par 5 6th - Stallings takes a rip with his driver and it tugs it left just a bit, finding the primary rough. It skipped forward a bit and looks to be sitting on a bit of a downslope.
There are only 15 players in the field not in red figures today. Gotta go low.
Par 5 6th - With the pin cut at the front of the green, Stallings had only 235 yards to the pin. He rips a 4-iron out of that downhill lie, and while he hits it solid, it comes up just a touch short. Still he'll be on the fairway, just short of the green lying two.
Par 3 5th - Chappell had a little under 15-feet for his birdie, but he mis-read the break. He played it out left of the cup and never really turned in at all. He was able to clean up his par though.
Make that only 12 players not in red figures today now.
Par 5 6th - Stallings doesn't quite contact his pitch the way he liked and it lands just short of the hole and releases about 8-feet past the hole.
Par 5 6th - Back on the tee, Chappell takes a rip with the driver and hits a beauty. From the middle of the fairway, he'll have a definite green-light to go at the green with his second.
Par 4 8th - Brian Gay moves into solo second, rolling in the birdie putt of about 8-feet to get to -22.
Par 5 6th - Stallings is unable to convert his birdie putt, playing too much break to the right and not giving it enough pace either.
Par 5 6th - With 216 yards to the hole, Chappell takes dead-aim and hits another solid iron shot. This one lands just short on the left and hops on to the green. He'll have 15-20-feet for an eagle three.
Par 4 7th - Stallings dials back with a 2-iron off the tee and while it safely finds the fairway, he probably had a couple of nervous moments. It was down the right side with a hazard running parallel not that far away.
Par 5 6th - Officially, Chappell has 17-feet 7-inches for eagle. He hit a wonderful putt, but it JUST missed on the right edge. He'll tap-in for birdie and joins Gay at -22.
Par 4 7th - Stallings with 188-yards to the back hole location, and he pulls out an 8-iron, landing it short in the rough and it hops forward to settle pin-high 15-feet or so right of the flag.
Par 4 7th - Back on the tee, Chappell gets a little quick in his transition and yanks it left. There is OB down that way, but the ball takes a couple of good hops and rolls along the cart path to settle in a trampled down area of the rough.
Par 4 9th - Gay with the 50-foot birdie putt and while he had it on line, it stops a couple inches short. All-in-all though, a solid effort.
Par 4 7th - Stallings had just over 16-feet back up the hill for birdie. He had some trouble getting the ball to line up properly and he never gave it enough juice, leaving it in the heart but short.
Par 4 7th - Stallings with a simple 2-foot tap-in par and he MISSES. He took no time, didn't line it up really and just yanked it left. It barely caught any of the hole.
Pretty awful way for Stallings to make his first bogey of the week.
Par 4 7th - After his second shot out of the rough couldn't get enough bite to hold the green, Chappell with a tidy third shot from the rough over the green, leaving him less than a foot for his par.
Par 4 8th - With the tees moved up, making it 294 yards to the flag from the tee, Stallings pulls out 3-wood and he hits a wonderful shot. It lands just short of the green and hops forward to sit nearly pin-high on the fringe.
Except that he bogeyed the last hole, so, no, he won't be.
Par 4 8th - Stallings with another mini-speed wobble. He had a relatively simple chip and didn't contact it the way he would have liked and leaves what could have been a makeable chip short.
Par 4 10th - Gay, from just inside 15-feet, gets the putter working wonderfully and gives it the early walk, to boot. Now back in solo second at -23.
Last three holes some major speed wobbles from Scott Stallings: chip at 6, tee shot at 7, par putt at 7 and chip at 8.
Par 4 8th - Stallings now compounding his errors and is unable to convert the birdie putt from about 5-feet.
Can't birdie a reachable in two par 5, gacks a 2-foot par putt and can't birdie a reachable par 4, but Scott Stallings still leads.
Par 5 11th - Coming off birdie at the 10th, Gay with a wonderful tee shot, striping it down the middle and he'll be able to go at the green with his second shot.
Par 4 8th - Chappell with 3-wood at the reachable par four, and it's just left of the flag the whole way, settling in the primary rough about 10 paces from the green's edge.
Par 4 9th - At the toughest hole on the course -- and kicking off a stretch of 4 really tough ones sandwiching a par five -- Stallings with 3-wood off the tee and while it leaks a little right, it should be okay.
