Kuchar blows 6-shot lead, tied for 1st

LOS CABOS, Mexico (AP) Matt Kuchar blew a big lead with a late collapse Saturday in the World Wide Technology Championship, leaving him tied with Camilo Villegas with a round left at Tiger Woods-designed El Cardonal at Diamante.

Six strokes ahead at 24 under with three holes left on a breezy, cloudy afternoon on the tip of Baja California. Kuchar pulled his drive on 15 left into dense bushes and made a quadruple-bogey 8. He then bogeyed the par-3 16th, limiting the damage with a 12-foot bogey putt.

“Listen, this course has some trickiness to it,” Kuchar said. “That 15th hole is one I think we all have circled - `I think this could be a big number.′ - and for me it was today,” Kuchar said. “Listen, it’s golf.”
