Jason Gore and Jonas Blixt shoot 62 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club.
Jason shot a third round -8 under par 62, which included a bogey, at the Wyndham Championship. He now sits on top of the leaderboard at -15 under par, and will take a two shot lead into the final round tomorrow.
Jason is a longtime friend of Tiger, and was talking up the performance of his friend, and added a comment about himself;
“What the guy has done for the game, bringing people into the game of golf is amazing.”
“We all have better lives because of him, and you know, some of us have jobs because of him and I just think it’s awesome to see him playing well again, to see him playing like Tiger Woods, because that’s what we all want to see.”
“Contrary to popular belief, I’m still a good golfer.”
“You’d think a chubby guy from California couldn’t handle the heat and humidity. Maybe it brings my focus up.”
Tied in second place are Jonas Blixt, who also carded a bogey in his -8 under par 62, Scott Brown and Tiger Woods.
Scott had a -4 under par 66 today, while Tiger could only manage -2 under par 68.
Jonas wants to secure his PGA Tour card for next year, and a win here would do that;
“Very pleased if I secured my job. A win will take care of that.”
“Shoot another 62, I should have a good chance.”
A win here for Tiger would clinch a spot in the FedExCup Playoffs, and help to make something from a dismal season;
“I felt very steady from the word go.”
“The putter just felt really good. My pace, I felt like I could be aggressive.”
“I took a few runs at putts and ripped them past the hole, but I never felt like I was going to miss any of them. I took a rip at them. Some I made, some I didn’t.”
“I need to go out there tomorrow and make a run and get myself up there and make some birdies.”
“There’s a bunch of guys at 13 under. There’s a whole slew of guys at 12, 11, 10. “
“Anybody can make a run and shoot the score Jason and Jonas did.”
There are five players tied in fifth spot, at -12 under par, Webb Simpson, Jim Herman, Paul Casey, Cameron Percy and Brandt Snedeker.
