Golf takes too long? Kevin Na played his first nine holes in 1 hour and 23 minutes. Phil Mickelson and Jimmy Walker were the second group out at 9:20a EST and finished in a blistering 3:10. When I told Mickelson that Na played the front in 1:23 the lefty replied, "We didn't see him all day. How's that even possible?!" Fast pro golf, that's how.

Going into tomorrow's final round of the Tour Championship, there's a tie atop the leaderboard -- and a stark dichotomy between the two players. Dustin Johnson is seeking his fourth win of the year en route to a likely POY award, while Kevin Chappell is searching for his elusive first career victory.

Three straight birdies for Dustin Johnson. To put this thing into CFB terms, we're close to seeing backups in and continuous clock running.

No one is going to hang with Dustin Johnson at Tour Championship this weekend. He'll win and be Player of Year. Ryder Cup next weekend.

Bubba Watson is 5-under for the day through 12 holes. He's clearly heating up, but I'm not sure he's officially at "hot hand" status yet.
