Rickie, -4 under 66 today, Jordan, -5 under 65, Dustin, -1 under 69 and Jhonattan, -5 under 65, all share The Northern Trust lead at -6 under par for the tournament.
Jhonattan has other things on his mind, like Hurricane Harvey heading towards his home;
“It’s hard. It’s hard not being home, not being able to help with the house and with everything.”
“I think I’m a little bit fortunate that we live up north in The Woodlands, and historically, by the time hurricanes come into Houston, it takes a little longer to get into Houston.”
“Obviously it’s something that it’s going to be in the back of my mind for the next few days.”
Rickie has been very consistent driving, but not as long as DJ, but good putting makes up the difference;
“I think the biggest thing is it continue to drive it well to give myself a legitimate chance this week and continue to make putts. Stuff that I think I’ve done well all year.”
“I would say there are some holes, certain carries and stuff like that, that open it up for DJ a little bit but by no means does that mean I can’t go out and beat him.”
DJ is feeling fine now after injury;
“I’d have liked to play better in the majors.”
“Getting hurt before Augusta, which is going right into the major season, didn’t really help, especially for the momentum and how good I felt like I was swinging, and everything was going in a really good direction.”
“But I feel like I’ve got it back on the right track. I feel like I’m swinging well again.”
Close behind these guys, at -5 under are Bubba Watson, -2 under 68 today, and Matt Kuchar, -6 under 64.
The leaderboard is still tightly packed, and anyone could make a significant move on Saturday.
