Northern Trust Open: Couples now in two-way tie for lead and in trouble

February 19, 2011 |  1:06 pm

Australian Aaron Baddeley just birdied the par-four, 460-yard eighth hole by sinking about an eight-foot birdie putt to go nine-under and tie Fred Couples for the lead. And Couples just put his drive on the eighth hole well into the right rough in the Northern Trust Open at Riviera Country Club. Baddeley is three-under so far in his third round. Another Australian, John Senden, is third at eight-under and another shot back is Diamond Bar high school graduate Kevin Na.
