Bubba Watson finished the third round two shots off the lead. He came inches from possibly being tied with Graeme McDowell had things broken his way. 

On the par-5 603-yard eighth hole, Watson's second shot just missed the hole by inches. He ended up two-putting and carding a birdie 4. 

 

 

That was his third birdie of the day and moved him 9-under for the weekend.

His back nine was just as up and down as his adventure on No. 8. He made a double-bogey 6 on the 10th hole, and made birdie on four of the final five holes.
