D.J. Dustin Johnson has a three shot lead to take into the final round of the BMW Championship tomorrow, at Crooked Stick Golf Club.
Dustin had a third round -4 under par 68 today, with a birdie at the last, to post -18 under par for the BMW Championship, which takes him three shots clear of the field.
There is no doubt about where the transformation is coming from, his putter;
“The strength this week has been putting,.
“I’m rolling it really nicely. Even the putts that I’m missing still look like they’re going in.”
“I was putting good with it and right before we were about to tee off on Thursday, I’m like, `AJ, don’t you have the same one in black?’ And he says, `Yeah.’ And I said, `Go get it.’
“I just didn’t want to use the same putter Jason was, like, the exact same one. That was really the only reason I changed.”
Paul Casey is in second place, those three shots back at -15 under par, he also carded -4 under par 68 today, he said he had a front row seat watching J.D.;
“We had a front row seat for something very special, and I’ll get a front row seat for it tomorrow.”
“Not much you can do, he’s got maybe the best attitude in golf. When he gets on his game, maybe the best ball-striker in golf. Maybe the longest. And he showed it today.”
“So, if he keeps doing what he’s been doing; what he averaging, 6 under a day? if does the same tomorrow, there’s no catching him.”
J.B. Holmes also shot -4 under 68 today, which took him up the leaderboard to third place at -14 under par.
Roberto Castro went backwards today, +2 over par 74 dropping him to -12 under for the competition, and fourth place. More worryingly for him he also drops back into the bubble for not qualifying for next week, where only the top 30 players on the FedExCup standings get to play. He is currently projected in 32 spot, so will need a very good round tomorrow to progress.
