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.

Dustin Johnson, answering a question about the science behind his swing: “There's not a whole lot of science going on here.”

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

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.

Rory McIlroy on the claim by U.S. captain Davis Love III that he might have the best Ryder Cup team ever: "They've definitely assembled the best task force ever."

Rory McIlroy on Davis Love III claim that U.S. might be best Ryder Cup team ever: "They've definitely assembled the best task force ever."

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

Bucci Mane @Buccigross

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.
