Na leading Players Champisonship

1:27 pm on 13 May 2012

American golfer Kevin NA is leading the field after the third round of the Players Championship in Florida.

Na, who was in a three way tie for the lead after round two, carded a four under par round of 68 today to be 12 under for the tournament, one shot clear of fellow American Matt Kuchar

Na was given a warning for slow play in the blustery conditions, after backing off from his ball numerous times to take additional practice swings.

Today's big mover was American Ricky Fowler who climbed 14 places on the leaderboard into third at 9 under par.

Fowler, who claimed his first PGA Tour win at Quail Hollow last week, carded a third round total of 66 that featured 7 birdies and a bogey on 18.

The 23 year old Californian put his success down to accuracy off the tee, which he says is the key to taming TPC Sawgrass especially in today's windy conditions.
