Jason carded -6 under par 65, helped by those two Eagles, to top the RBC Heritage leaderboard at -13 under par, after 54 holes. The difference in his play is down to not coming into the tournament with any expectations;
“That really gets in the way of playing well to be honest with you.”
“So I think I maybe learned a little bit from the champion last week, where he kind of lowered his expectations, and got out of his way, so to speak, and let his talent and his game plan take it from there.”
“I feel like this golf course has always been a good set up for me.”
“I haven’t had amazing results here, but I’ve been pretty consistent. We’ll see how it goes tomorrow.”
Graham DeLaet, from Canada, holds second place at -12 under par, he shot a third round -2 under 69, he said a PGA Tour win is the only thing missing from his CV;
“Obviously, this is the one thing that’s kind of missing.”
“So there’s going to be some battles, inside, that I’m going to have to deal with.”
Sharing third place, at -11 under par are Kevin Kisner, -5 under 66 today, and Webb Simpson, who signed for -3 under 68.
Ian Poulter is in fifth spot at -10 under par, he managed -2 under 69 today to stay in touch with the leaders. Ian is playing here on a medical extension, and needs to earn $145,000 of 117 FedExCup points over the next two weeks to enable him to keep his playing privileges intact. He’s in good spot right now as fifth place pays $260,000.
