Matt Kuchar had a third round of -1 under under par for a total of -11 under, which kept him at the top of the leaderboard in the Crowne Plaza Invitational, by just one shot.
Matt’s third round finally ended more than 12 hours after he woke up;
” This morning feels like a day ago. It would’ve been nice to extend my lead, tomorrow will be an exciting day.”
Just one shot back at -10 under par are Boo Weekley, Graham DeLaet, Matt Every and Chris Stroud. Boo said it will be a shoot-out tomorrow;
“It’s going to be a shootout.”
Zach Johnson, the defending Champion is at -8 under par, three shots off the pace, but still in contention.
Jordan Spieth had a share of the lead early on, but some costly mistakes dropped him down the leaderboard. Afterwards he did not want to focus too much on what happened to him today;
“I can’t focus too much on today, I’m really happy with the way I putted. I just made some mental errors, just rookie mistakes that cost me about four shots. Otherwise, I’d be tied for the lead. Just got fooled big-time by the wind on four or five holes. I just guessed incorrectly twice in a row, it was a decision that obviously looks bad afterward. I’m happy to close with a birdie and carry it into tomorrow only four back.”
Tim Clark and Martin Flores shot the low rounds of the day, both with rounds of -5 under par 65.
Tim was happy with the way he played today;
” Yesterday was really bad, luckily I kind of got it figured out and today the swing felt good. I’ve been in this position a lot, so again, it’s about for me staying aggressive on this golf course, when you try to play it safe, it can come back and get you. So I just need to stay aggressive. For a guy who doesn’t hit it very far, this is a very good golf course to come in and do some shot-making.”
