December 13-15
Tiburón GC, Naples, Florida
Round 1, Round 3

Brendon Todd and Billy Horschel both shot a 6-under 66 in modified alternate shot for a share of the lead at the QBE Shootout.

The partnerships of Rory Sabbatini-Kevin Tway (67), Harold Varner III-Ryan Palmer (70), Jason Kokrak-J.T. Poston (68) and Charles Howell III-Bubba Watson (66) were also 19 under. Ian Poulter and Graeme McDowell (65) were a stroke back. The tournament will close with a best-ball round.

Todd, who leads the FedEx Cup in points after wins at Bermuda and Mayakoba this season, was partnered with Horschel when Brandt Snedeker withdrew because of an injured left ring finger.

''I knew when Brendon was going to be my partner when Sneds had to withdraw I got a better partner,'' Horshell said. Sorry, Sneds'', but Brendon's been playing really well, two wins, fourth-place finish. I was probably the happiest guy in the world at that point. I've known Brendon since college days, he's a great putter.

They played six birdies in windy conditions after morning rain at Tiburón Golf Club.

''Billy's hitting the ball really well, we're both putting two shots in the fairway,''Todd said. The tricky part is you're not putting every hole, so to get the speed of the greens down is just tough out there, but I think we ham-and-egged it pretty good.''
