2012 Arnold Palmer Invitational: Tiger Woods Leads Graeme McDowell By One Stroke; Ernie Els And Ian Poulter Three Back

A foursome of big-name players at the top of the leaderboard has set up what should be a fantastic finish on Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard.

At the top of the leaderboard is Tiger Woods, who followed up his 65 from Friday with a less-spectacular 71 to finish Saturday at 11-under. He will be paired with Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell, who also shot 71 and is one back of Woods at 10-under par.

Ernie Els and Ian Poulter are tied for third at eight-under after Els shot a 67 and Poulter carded a 68.

Further down the leaderboard, past major champions Vijay Singh and Sergio Garcia are among those tied for 25th at 2-under par, while Phil Mickelson is one stroke behind that group at 1-under after matching Woods with a Saturday 71.
