Today's live updates from the Transitions Championship at Innisbrook


6:10: Jim Furyk appears to be pulling away. He is three shots up at 15-under after a 35 foot birdie on No. 12. If Furyk should win, it will be his 14th career win and his first in 59 tournaments dating back to 2007. He would also be the eighth third round leader in 11 tournaments to win at Innisbrook.

5:15: Breathing room for Furyk after he birdies No. 8 and Choi bogies. He is now two shots up at 13-under over Choi and Watson. The group is making the turn to the back nine, which means it will be cutting it close on daylight. I don't imagine they would want to return at 7 a.m. to play a few holes, so it may go a little faster on the back.

4:15: K.J. Choi is making it interesting. Choi just birdied the fifth hole and now trails Furyk by only a shot. This is really turning into a four man race: Furyk, Choi, Watson and Goosen. Harrington and Pettersson have fallen off.

3:45: Conditions aren't really that bad. There is a little puddling in the bunkers, but the fairways and greeens have held up well after three hours of rain. The wind has picked up, but that doesn't seem to be bothering leader Jim Furyk, who has a three shot lead over K.J. Choi.

Play has resumed at Innisbrook for the final round of the Transitions Championship, which means the official rain delay was 3 hours, 43 minutes. It is wet and soft out there, and players are using the lift, clean and place rule. With windy conditions and slow greens, it will be interesting to see how it affects scores. As long as there are no further delays, the tournament should be completed before sun down.
