Justin Timberlakes Shriners Hospitals for Children Open has three players tied at the top of the leaderboard after the third round at TPC Summerlin, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Rookie Jonas Blixt roared back into contention here at TPC Summerlin converting six birdies in his last seven holes to be tied at the top of the leaderboard with Ryan Moore and Brendon de Jonge at -19 under par for the tournament. Jonas is trying  to join John Huh and Ted Potter Jr. as the only rookie winners this season.

These three players have a five-shot cushion between them and Jimmy Walker and Tim Herron, who are tied for fourth at -14 under par for the tournament. Two shots further back are Colt Knost, Jason Day, Jason Bohn and Russell Knox at -12 under par.

I wish good luck to Jonas Blixt in his quest for his first win on the PGA Tour.
