Hoffman holes mammoth putt to tie Kisner at Bay Hill

The fun part about Sunday will be watching Fowler and McIlroy try to go low early and see if it puts any pressure on Kisner, Hoffman and other golfers like Tyrrell Hatton, Marc Leishman and Adam Hadwin, who stand between Fowler and McIlroy and the lead.

"The putter - I gave myself plenty of chances", he said. He drained the six-foot birdie - his eighth one-putt in 10 holes - to move two shots ahead of Hoffman.

McIlroy noted that he wanted to be within six as the final round started.

Hoffman also paid tribute to Palmer, whose memory lingers this week after decades as the United States face of golf, making the sport popular on television and becoming a sports marketing pioneer in the process.

"I just played better, holed some putts", said the man who needs to win next month's Masters to complete the career Grand Slam of all four major championships.

Washington unemployment rate at 5.1 percent
But a household survey found the number of people employed rose by 8,600 while the number of jobless people dropped slightly. Allen County's unemployment rate was the highest in the region at 6.2 percent, followed by Hardin County at 6.1 percent.

McIlroy got back on track with three pars on the trot before the highlight of his day arrived at the par-five 16th, where he negotiated the 511-yard trip in just three shots.

McIlroy began the Florida event with a very disappointing three-over 74 on Thursday before getting one shot back with Friday's 71.

Grillo went on to walk off the hole with a quadruple bogey following two consecutive shots into the water - one of which, admittedly, was really unlucky.

The contenders will be exclusively focused on winning tomorrow, but there's no doubt that even without Palmer here to watch the drama unfold, his tournament still has a special aura that will never leave.

"I'm going to feed off those last three holes going into tomorrow and go from there", Hoffman said.

The four-time major victor was
one-over for the day after six before going eagle-double bogey-birdie in his next three holes.

Kisner could have been in the lead all by himself, but he bogeyed No. 18, a hole he probably wants back. He shot a tournament record-tying 30 on the back nine.
