Shoot-Out Set For FESJC Final Round

Moving day at the FedEx St.Jude Classic wasn't a disappointment. Some former champs are within striking distance and there's a two-way tie atop the leaderboard.  After a great day yesterday, 21 year old Memphian Casey Wittenberg struggled with a 6 over, 76...he's now plus 5. John Cook, that's a name we haven't heard in a while, he holds the tournament record here.  Cook cards a 67 to get to get it to 5 under par, 2 strokes off the lead. Nick Price, a two time champ, is 4 strokes off the lead after a 69, so he too will make it interesting.

The day belonged to Tim Herron and Tom Pernice though. They both shot 68, and are tied for the lead at 7 under.   "It's going to be fun tomorrow. I'm putting well right now I just have to use some confidence and commit to all my shots tomorrow," said Herron who won last week on the tour.  Pernice was cautiously optimistic, "I'm thrilled I have myself in position to go Sunday. I feel like I'm hitting the ball good. My putter has been good the last 9 holes so if it continues tomorrow it will be fine."  

Kris Cox is 3rd, just one stroke back after turning in the low score of the day. He posted a 63. Jay Delsing and John Cook tied for 4th at 5 under.
