GREENSBORO, NC -- The early goings of the Wyndham Championship's final round provided a little movement for patrons in Greensboro, but the drama has yet to really heat up, thanks to some sloppy play from leaders Webb Simpson and Tommy Gainey.
Simpson birdied nine to give himself a little cushion after a 1-under front but Gainey ended up bogeying twice to post a 1-over on the front.
But the stage is set for some serious drama on the back nine, with a cluster of players atop the leaderboard, all capable of making a big move.
Remember, Simpson played the front nine even-par on Saturday and only took a two-stroke lead into Sunday thanks to a white hot stretch down the back nine.
Gainey's capable of putting anything on the board, from eagle-eagle-albatross to bogey-double-quad.
And Carl Pettersson, who cost himself several strokes when he left his irons short on the front, also played the back nine well during the third round, posting a three-under score in the second part of his round Saturday.
And John Mallinger, who's flirted with making a big run all day, holed out a chip for par on the ninth to gain some momentum heading into his second nine.
In short, it looks like the folks worried about their ranking in the Fed Ex Cup standings won't be the only ones intently focused on the leaderboard for the rest of the day in Greensboro.
