(WVUE) -

Jordan Spieth, Justin Turner, and Sergio Garcia were some big-time names in golf that didn't make it to the weekend here at the Zurich Classic. But there was still some star power creeping up the scoreboard, including former champ Billy Horschel. Paired with Scott Piercy, they're in fifth place, three strokes back of the leaders.

"Billy Ho show. I was just here for the ride. I let him ride, then he got tired, and I brought it home the last four holes. That simplifies it pretty much huh," said Scott Piercy.

"I was the horse, he was the jockey. When I got tired, he kicked in the whip, and kicked in the whip on himself," said Billy Horschel.

The entire field is looking up at the team of Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown. They shot eight-under on Saturday, and hold a one-stroke lead.

"Yeah we had a chance to run away a little bit, and we could never get two balls in a good position on the back nine. Still leading the golf tournament, feel good, in the right position where we need to go. It's going to be a dogfight tomorrow, everyone bunched up," said Kevin Kisner.

Kisner and Brown finished runner-up last year in a playoff. So why is this tandem so lethal two years running.

"I don't know what the answer is honestly. It favors length a lot, which we don't really hit it crazy far. Kevin has putted great here the last couple of years. He's played awesome. I kicked in a few to help when he's out of it," said Scott Brown.

Tomorrow in the final round of the Zurich Classic it's alternate shot format. Which means one player tees off, then his teammate hits the second shot, and so on.
