Tour Report: Watney takes control in Malaysia
Watney birdies No. 12 at CIMB Classic

Nick Watney hits his approach shot to 4 feet on the par-4 12th hole and sinks the birdie putt.

Nick Watney has racked up nine birdies through 15 holes and opened up a two-shot lead over Tiger Woods, Bo Van Pelt and Chris Kirk at the CIMB Classic.

Currently 21 under, Watney needs to go 3 under on the last three holes to shoot 59 at The MINES Resort.

Woods is 8 under through 17 holes in his final round while Kirk and Van Pelt are 4 and 3 under respectively.

Van Pelt, who is paired with Robert Garrigus (-18) may be the biggest threat to Watney. The defending champion has six holes to break out of his current six-hole birdie drought.
