Jason Bohn shoots 61 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic, to share the 4-way tied lead at Old White TPC, in West Virginia.
Jason carded -9 under par 61 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic to share the lead at -11 under with Sean O’Hair, Sung Joon Park and Bryce Molder.
It is nicely set up to be another close finish at the tournament, with 27 players within four shots of the lead.
Jason had to rise early for the start of the third round, now he can sleep in tomorrow. He had signed his card and moved on, so the media had to ask him to return and give an interview;
“I just wanted to sleep in, to be honest, now I don’t have to get up early in the morning.”
“If somebody asks you, I never think you say no to the media.”
“You’ve got to tell the family, ‘Look, I’ll be back in an hour-and-a-half.’ But when you get back, then you’ve just got to be a dad, be a family guy.”
“The time that you’re here for your job, you just have to pay attention to it. You’ve got to do your warm-ups; you’ve got to work out; you’ve got to stretch. That takes a lot of time, and that’s hard to do.”
“If you had to do that every week, I think you’d be worn out pretty quickly. But a couple of weeks a year, it’s worth every bit of it.”
Justin Thomas, David Hearn, Danny Lee and Chad Collins were at -10 under par, just one shot back going into the final round tomorrow.
It was a poor day for yesterdays leaders, Scott Langley +4 over 74, and Johnny Vegas +6 over 76 dropped them out of contention.
Tiger Woods also had a poor day, +1 over 71 to be T47 with a bunch of players on -4 under par. He put most of the blame on a bad putting performance, needing 31 putts for the day. For a second straight day Tiger declined interview requests from the assembled media, but did offer some comments to a PGA Tour official;
“I said, if I can just get a couple putts to go, then everything could kind of snowball the other way.”
“Instead, I was kind of fighting an uphill battle, I hit a lot of shots close. I just need to convert on those and get some kind of string going in a positive way.”
“I gave myself plenty of looks early to get something going and get some kind of run.’
‘Could have easily been 3-, 4-, 5-under par on the front nine. Just got nothing out of it. Hit that shot on 11, and there it goes.”
