Here is how some of Golf Media are covering that round:

Golf Digest raises the question of whether, under present serene conditions, the winner may even reach 30-under.

PGA on Harris English:    "English was bogey-free for the second straight round and putted the dots off his ball – making over 126-feet of putts on Saturday during his 7-under 66. The blemish-free round was under threat on the final hole when he pulled his approach into the penalty area, but an eagle-eyed marshal found his ball in deep grass and English was able to hack it out and save par."

They refer to Ryan Palmer avoiding penalty, and note that Collin Morikawa is "Ready to pounce just a shot behind" the leaders.

The Bleacher Report notes that "Harris English hasn't won a PGA Tour event since 2013, but he's 18 holes away from capturing a wire-to-wire victory at the Sentry Tournament of Champions."   

They also note,  "No one put together a better Saturday than Palmer, who took three strokes off his game after shooting a 67 in each of his first two rounds at the Sentry".   And, they include some great shots and videos from the round, courtesy of twitter.

The Irish Times begin with Ryan Palmer's success:  "Starting the day two strokes behind overnight leader English, Palmer picked up three shots in a flawless front nine, before charging home by making birdies at six of his last seven holes to go to the clubhouse at 21-under par."     They also cover a number of other players.

The Straits Times refer to Im Sungjae's round as being rather "more eventful" than those mentioned before:   

"Im posted an eagle 3 on the fifth hole, bogeyed No. 8, came back with a birdie on No. 9 and then finished his round with birdies on four of his final five holes."
