Hunter Mahan

Birdie: Hunter Mahan

With fond memories of Valhalla from his play six years ago at the Ryder Cup, where he went 2-0-3 for the victorious U.S. team, Mahan channeled his 2008 self with a bogey-free 65. Just how good was Mahan's third round, which matched the best score of the tournament and vaulted the 32-year-old from T-38 to T-13? His six birdies Saturday exceeded the five he made the previous two days combined. "Today some of those putts that would have lipped out [Thursday and Friday] lipped in," he said. If Mahan could back up this round with another good number on Sunday, he'll go a long way of securing his first top-10 finish since March. --RH
