It was a long, wet day in Dallas, where play was delayed for hours and the third round is unfortunately still incomplete.
Here’s everything you missed from Saturday’s action at the AT&T Byron Nelson.
Thunderstorms caused a six-hour delay in Dallas on Saturday, pushing the starting times from 9:04 a.m. local time to 3:04 p.m. Unfortunately, that meant that a significant portion of the field was not able to finish the third round before darkness resulted in play being called for the day.
The final threesome of Sung Kang, Matt Every and Tyler Duncan finally teed off at 5:40 p.m. local time and managed to get through nine holes before darkness fell. The third round will resume at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, with the final round immediately following. The final round will have threesomes going off split tees between 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. local time on Sunday.
It would seem that no lead is safe on the PGA Tour these days. After firing a sizzling 61 on Friday (which tied the course record), Sung Kung was leading by four shots heading into Round 3. But his competitors continued the birdie barrage, especially Matt Every, who made the most significant statement thus far, going eagle-par-par-birdie-birdie-birdie (five under par) in his opening six holes, cutting Kang’s lead to a single shot. By the time he reached the ninth hole, Every was leading by one at 18 under par overall, after Kang bogeyed the par-3 8th.
Every has two career victories on the PGA Tour. His best finish this year is T3 at the Zurich Classic.
Trinity Forest has been yielding a lot of low scores thus far, but how about Nicholas Lindheim’s climb up the leaderboard?
The 34-year-old has one career top 10 on the PGA Tour, but is making a strong case to double that number this weekend. Lindheim has made nine birdies and no bogeys in 15 holes to launch himself 44 spots up the leaderboard into T7 at 12 under par overall. Now that’s what we call Moving Day.
Brooks Koepka isn’t swimming in red numbers like some of his peers in the third round. He’s currently one under par on the day through 10 holes, and 12 under par overall. That’s six shots back at the moment.
Henrik Stenson is four under on the day and 10 under overall through 11 holes, Jordan Spieth is three under on the day and 10 under overall through 11, and Patrick Reed is three under on the day and seven under overall through 17.
