2012 WGC-Cadillac Championship: Bubba Watson Holds Three-Shot Lead After 54 Holes

Bubba Watson shot a 67 on Saturday to extend his lead over the field TPC-Blue Monster at Doral, Fla. After 54 holes, Watson has a three shot lead over England's Justin Rose and fellow American Keegan Bradley.

With many players shooting low scores earlier in the day, Watson had a great deal of pressure on him to get out to a strong start. He did just that, scoring an eagle on the first hole and following that up with a birdie on the second. Watson is now 17 under par with the final round looming tomorrow.

Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods both had strong rounds, shooting scores of 65 and 68 respectively. Both are part of a group of six players tied for 8th at 9 under par.

The find round of this tournament is on Sunday.
