Pebble Beach Round 3 - News and Notes

*Final-round tee times will be between 7:30-9:30 a.m PT, with players going off both the first and 10th tees. The earlier times and split tees are being used so that play will be completed before the start of the Super Bowl, scheduled at 3:18 p.m. PT.
*The last Q-School medalist to win the following season is Mike Weir. Weir won top honors at the 1998 Qualifying Tournament, and then won the 1999 Air Canada Championship.
*Perez, a rookie on the PGA Tour, listed his 2002 goal as earning $1 million. If he wins Sunday, he will collect $720,000.
*Tiger Woods shot 1-under 71 at Pebble Beach to finish 54 holes at 2-under 214. Hes tied for 35th place, 13 shots back. Woods kept alive his cuts-made streak, which now stands at 80. He is six events behind Hale Irwin for third place on the all-time list of most consecutive cuts made.
*Woods and pro-am partner Jerry Chang were one of three teams to survive a six-team playoff to make the cut. The co-defending champions are at 18-under 198, nine shots behind leaders Brian Claar and Randall Mays. Twenty-five pro-am teams are still alive.
*Andrew Magee shot 5-under 67 at Poppy Hills to move within five shots of the lead at minus 10. Magee, 39, is using his one-time top-50 career money winner's exemption this season. He was actually 51st as the season began, but moved in because the list includes the late Payne Stewart (No. 15 at years start). Magee finished 180th in earnings last year.
*Seventy-two players made the cut, which fell at even-par 216. Davis Love III became the third defending champion in as many weeks to miss the cut. Love finished at 5-over 221. Mark Calcavecchia missed the cut at last weeks Phoenix Open, and Joe Durant missed the cut at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic.
*Perezs four-stroke lead is the second-best 54-hole advantage in tournament history. Lon Hinkle led by five shots in 1979. He went on to win a three-man playoff over Mark Hayes and Andy Bean.
*Jesper Parnevik made 18 pars in his second round at Poppy Hills. He snapped that streak on his first hole Saturday at Pebble Beach, though he did so with a bogey. Parnevik shot 2-under 70 and is 7-under for the event.
