ATLANTA -- Dustin Johnson had a reasonable lie in the rough and only a few pine tree branches blocking his path to the 17th green. Discount Shoes Online . Neither seemed like a problem until he played the wrong shot, clipped the tree and wound up with a double bogey Saturday in the Tour Championship.It was an example of how one hole can change everything at East Lake.And its why the final round of the PGA Tour season suddenly has more scenarios than Johnson cares to consider.Johnson recovered with a birdie from the bunker on the par-5 18th for a 1-under 69, giving him a share of the lead with Kevin Chappell (68) going into the last round that will determine who wins the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup.For the first time since 2009, theres a chance it might not be the same player.Theres a lot of scenarios that could happen, Johnson said. But yeah, Im still going to go out and try to shoot as low a score as possible.Johnson only has to win or finish second alone to claim the $10 million bonus as the FedEx Cup champion.Rory McIlroy, who has gone 28 holes without a bogey at East Lake, had three birdies over his last six holes for a 66 and was two shots behind. If he were to win the Tour Championship and Johnson finished in a two-way tie for second or worse, McIlroy would claim the FedEx Cup.It would just be great to try to win the Tour Championship, and if the chips fall my way, then so be it, McIlroy said.The winner of the Tour Championship has won the FedEx Cup every year since 2009, when Phil Mickelson won the tournament and Tiger Woods won the FedEx Cup.Johnson led by as many as four shots when he ran off three straight birdies on the front nine, and he really didnt do much wrong to give up the size of that lead. He had a three-putt from 70 feet on No. 13, and missed the fairway by a few feet on the next hole, enough that his ball was buried so deep that even Johnson and his power couldnt advance more than about 135 yards.It was the 17th hole that reshaped the tournament.Johnson tried to played a fade from a flyer lie in the rough, and the ball came out high and hit a branch, leaving him in more rough about 60 yards short of the green. He put that in the bunker, blasted out to 6 feet and missed the putt to make double bogey.Chappell rolled in a 10-foot birdie putt for a three-shot swing on the hole and suddenly had the lead, only for Johnson to catch him with the final birdie.They were at 8-under 202.Chappell, a runner-up three times this season who has never won on the PGA Tour, has made only one bogey in 54 holes this week, a show of consistency, discipline and a few good breaks when he does miss the fairway.His next chance at a breakthrough victory is to face golfs best player at the moment (Johnson), with McIlroy and Ryan Moore (66) two shots behind.Ive always kind of been the underdog, so its a role Im comfortable in, Chappell said.Moore went out in 31 until he was slowed by a pair of bogeys, though very much in the mix just two shots out of the lead. The mystery is whether anything he does on Sunday -- even if that means a victory -- is enough for Davis Love III to use his last captains pick on Moore for the Ryder Cup.I came here this week to win a golf tournament, and Im 100 percent focused on that, Moore said, adding that the Ryder Cup is completely out of my control.And thats how the last day is shaping up for everyone -- post a score and see where it leads.Johnson, for a moment, looked as though he might take all the drama out of the season-ender when he made a 15-foot par putt early in his round and then ran off three straight birdies on the front nine to go four shots clear.The putter cooled off, however, and Chappell stayed in range.Chappell chipped in on No. 12 to match birdies and stay three shots behind, and then he quickly closed the gap when Johnson made back-to-back bogeys, only to respond with a 4-iron over the water to a peninsula green on the par-3 15th to 15 feet for birdie.The 17th hole changed everything.I thought about just trying to hit it in the front bunker, which I probably should have done -- probably would have made 4 if Id have done that, Johnson said. But it is what it is. I came back and birdied the last hole, tied for the lead going into tomorrow. I like my position.And he doesnt need a degree in math to figure out the easiest scenario -- just win. Cheap Shoes Wholesale .In my heart and mind Im competing for India, luge competitor Shiva Keshavan told The Associated Press in an email interview. Every day Im flooded with messages from Indians all over the world telling me they are supporting me. Cheap Shoes Free Shipping .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. http://www.wholesaleshoesfromchina.com/ . It might not have mattered.

WASHINGTON -- Rookie Luis Perdomos big league debut must seem like a long time ago.Perdomo pitched seven solid innings, Matt Kemp homered twice and drove in four runs and the San Diego Padres beat the Washington Nationals 5-3 on Friday night.The Padres have watched the 23-year-old right hander steadily evolve after allowing six runs in one relief inning in his first major league game.I always go back to that first outing he had, Opening Day against the Dodgers, and he just looked shell-shocked on the mound, manager Andy Green said.

I kept my pitches low and I was able to use my sinker to get some outs.Brandon Maurer pitched 1 1/3 innings for his fourth save.Kemp hit a solo shot in the first inning and gave San Diego the lead for good with a three-run homer in the fifth. He has six homers in his last six games and the Padres have homered in 20 straight, the longest streak in the National League this season.Jayson Werth and Daniel Murphy homered for Washington. The Nationals have lost four of five.People ask me what do we need? We need some timely two-out base hits. Not home runs, manager Dusty Baker said. We rely on home runs, which is fine. But you need some timely two-out hits or two or three consecutive hits, which we arent getting.Tanner Roark (9-6) turned in his shortest outing since June 5, lasting just five innings. He allowed five runs on four hits and surrendered two homers in a game for the first time this season.I didnt have my best stuff by any means tonight, Roark said. I stunk.Both teams were warned after Washingtons Oliver Perez hit Brett Wallace with a pitch to open the ninth.Washington pitchers hit three batters and San Diego hurlers hit one.Wilson Ramos had three hits for Washington.San Diego trailed 2-1 when Wallace wwas hit leading off the fifth and scored on a two-out single by Melvin Upton Jr. China Wholesale Shoes.

He has reached base in 26 consecutive games.Bryce Harper then walked, stole second and scored on Ramos single.TRAINERS ROOMNationals: RHP Joe Ross (right shoulder inflammation) will make a rehab start Sunday at Class-A Hagerstown. ...
