Today Jordan carded -7 under par 65 on the Pebble Beach course, to give himself an unassailable lead at the AT&T Pebble Beach tournament, with a -17 under par total.
Jordan reported that he was scared of those short downhill putts;
“Those putts scare me.”
“Not getting too frustrated, recognizing these greens are very tough to putt and from inside 10 feet, there are going to be mistakes that are made.”
“Staying really patient and staying focused on a goal.”
“Telling myself, ‘Hey, I’m not sure what it’s going to be, it might be three under, it might be four under tomorrow.”
“But staying really focused on challenging my goal, not looking at anybody else. That’s the toughest part tomorrow.”
“I couldn’t have asked for a better putting day,”
Brandt Snedeker holds second place on his own at -11 under par, a third round -5 under par 67 not enough to keep him in touch with the leader, but he has some hope, with the State numbers in that final group ;
“Jordan is going to be out outnumbered.”
“We got three Tennesseans in that group, so it will be a lot of fun to get in there.”
“But the front nine will be huge tomorrow, the first seven holes. I’ve got to go out there and make some birdies and put some pressure on him.”
Dustin Johnson, -6 under 66 today and Kelly Craft, also -6 under 66 are tied in third place at -10 under.
The top six players on the leaderboard all played Pebble Beach today, with Rob Oppenheim in fifth position on his own at -9 under, carding -4 under 68, on Pebble.
While Geoff Ogilvy is in the tie at -8 under par, he shot -6 under 66 today on Pebble.
He is tied with Derek Fathauer, +2 over 73, Scott Stallings, -6 under 65 and Jon Rahm, -4 under 67, who all played Monterey Peninsular. They were joined on that -8 under par score by Kevin Chappell who carded -5 under 67 on Pebble.
