Round 3 Recap: 2012 HP Byron Nelson Championship


Jason Dufner is still our leader after 54 holes. Being the 54 hole leader has been more of a curse than anything on the PGA Tour this year.  I believe that almost every (if not every) tournament has been a come from behind victory.  With 14 players within 4 shots of Dufner, this weeks winner can come from almost any of those spots.  The golf course has been running well, but a really low Sunday number is possible.

Vijay Singh is a man to watch on Sunday.  At age 48, Singh’s opportunities to win another PGA Tour event would seem to be closing. After battling some injuries, Singh had five top-10 finishes last year but he has failed to produce a top-10 result this season.  Singh will be going into Sunday a solo 5th, and bar a crazy Sunday finish he will get that top 10 this year at a minimum.  I would put Vijay as one of the guys to beat come the back nine tomorrow.

Jason Day is only one shot back, and another player that could easily win come tomorrow afternoon.  Jason has always had a little bit of trouble with the flat stick, but he has had no problems so far this week.  With a great putting round Jason is going to be hard to beat. Throw in a Kucher (who is currently still ridding his Players Championship high), last years winner Keegan Bradley, a hungry veteran Dickie Pride, and countless others who are within range tomorrow…should make for a great Sunday afternoon of golf on tv.  Too bad I have to work!
