PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Jerry Kelly and Kevin Na go into the weekend at The Players Championship with another chance at winning the PGA Tour's biggest event.

Na was the 54-hole leader three years ago until he faded on Sunday. He had a 69.

The 48-year-old Kelly had a two-shot lead over Tiger Woods in 2001. Woods went on to win The Players that year in a Monday finish. Kelly had eight birdies for a tournament-best 65.

They were at 8-under 136 and were two shots clear of a group that included Rickie Fowler.

Woods made a 10-foot birdie putt on his final hole for a 71. That proved as big as he thought it would be. He made the cut on the number.
