The Canadian Corey Connors had the best round of his career on Saturday when he needed 62 strokes to complete the third round of the Northern Trust tournament.
The 29-year-old was particularly adept at the age of nine to go with five birds and an eagle.
“Everything seemed easy,” Connors said after his round. I hit the ball well and was able to stop a few puddles without further trouble. I was able to take advantage of the opportunities I created for myself. ”
In the second half of the day he added four birds while running two bogies. His cumulative score of 201 (-12) puts him in ninth place.
“I do not know,” he said. I knew I had to stick to my game plan because I knew everything was going well and I would give myself several opportunities to choose. “
Connors was not the only golfer to have a good time on Saturday. Cameron Smith set a new mark on this course at the Liberty National Golf Club.
The Australians improved 24 places, pointing to 197 (-16) with the help of Spaniard John Rahim (67). He is looking for a fourth career success at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans later this year, and he knows it will be difficult.
“My driver definitely put me in a good position for all those birds,” Smith P says on the official PGA website. “John plays very good golf, so you have to constantly come back from behind,” he added.
Like Connors, South African Eric van Ruan and Irishman Shane Lowry need 62 shots to complete their day’s work. They are second (198) and sixth (200), respectively.
Adam Haddin and Roger Sloan are the other two Canadians starting the tournament but they could not avoid the chopping block on Friday.
The storm is coming
Golfers and golfers alike will have to wait until Monday to see the fourth and final round of the event. When Hurricane Henry makes landfall on Sunday, it will receive up to 250 millimeters of rain.
“Based on the planned route [l’ouragan] Henry and the warning issued by the National Hurricane Center for the area where the tournament will take place will not play out on Sunday, ”the circuit said in a simple statement, adding that details would be released later on Saturday.
