Robert Karlsson and Harris English shared the lead at the Mayakoba Classic, both on -15 under par for the tournament, they had completed just seven holes of round three before the suspension. Harris matched the lowest round of his PGA TOUR career in the morning with a -9 under par 62 on Mayakoba Resort’s El Camaleon course. He said of his second round;
“The last three weeks, last two tournaments, my ball-striking has been unbelievable. Finally, this tournament, my putting has come around. I changed putters and went back to my old Ping putter that I played with in college. Just brought back some good memories.”
Robert birdied holes 3 and 5 in his third round;
“It was nice to knock in a few birdies, it’s all good to be here. It’s unbelievable, I think, that we’re playing golf at all, the amount of rain we’ve had, the golf course should be unplayable. So, to just play is fantastic. It’s drying out nicely day by day.”
Rory Sabbatini and Kevin Stadler are tied in third place at -12 under par, Rory with eight holes completed and Kevin with six.
Alvaro Quiros, Jason Bohn and Chris Stroud were 11 under. Alvaro finished 14 holes, Jason nine, and Chris eight.
Alvaro agreed with Robert about the course condition;
“The course is in spectacular shape considering how much it’s rained. It’s tough to think that we can play a four-round tournament with all the rain that we’ve had. It’s playing longer. I had the opportunity to play here in 2008, and it was different conditions back then. I can say that it’s just playing longer.”
