After 54, same guy leading the pack.
Same guy picked up the trophy last year.
1.) Well, it was TECHNICALLY moving day but 36-hole leader Xander Schauffele maintained his lead. His four TOUR wins are all of the come-from-behind variety so something to watch tonight.
2.) Last year he made up five shots on 54-hole leader Gary Woodland by firing 62 and winning by one. Woodland trails by three this time around.
3.) Justin Thomas and Gary Woodland, second and third respectively, led the field in birdies last year while finishing third and second respectively. Thomas leads with 17 this year.
4.) So, 1-2-3 currently on the leaderboard ended up 1-3-2 last year. No wonder why everyone picked all three in the PGATOUR Fantasy game. #Smart.
5.) Kevin Kisner and Tyler Duncan shared the round of the day with 68.
6.) Kisner was the biggest mover as he jumped 15 spots to T4. He’ll look to add to his solo ninth and T17 here.
7.) Seven rounds in the 60s on a blustery Saturday were three more than Friday. Winds never materialized to the level of bother.
8.) Thomas and Woodland both posted 69 to vault into the top three.
9.) Schauffele’s 71 means nobody will post all four rounds in the 60s. He leads the field in bogey avoidance.
10.) With a bogey on No. 8, Schauffele’s streak of 60 holes without a bogey on the Plantation course ended. Take a bow.
11.) Two shots separate T4 and T15 heading into Sunday. More on the weather in a bit.
12.) Rickie Fowler dropped seven places from T4 to T11 after 74. Pro gamers should have expected something similar to this. It’s not a new phenomenon.
13.) If you’re not on board with Collin (yes, two L’s) Morikawa yet, you’re LAWST. JUST LAWST.
14.) If you’re not on board with Matthew Wolff (yes, two F’s) yet, you’re LAWST. JUST LAWST. He leads the field in SG: Off-the-Tee.
15.) Other first-timers here making noise, Joaquin Niemann and JT Poston are also T4. Youfs.
16.) Oh look, Jon Rahm is four back. Incredible run of form continues regardless of marital status!
