The third round at Barclays started shortly after the completion of the second round, early Saturday morning.
After having two rain delays on Thursday, The Barclays is back on the track and will send its lead players, Matt Kuchar and Gary Woodland, out in the last group on Sunday.
Matt Kuchar opened the third round with the lead at 10-under.Woodland, who is regarded as one of the best athlete on tour, ran off four birdies in a row and got a three stroke lead with nine holes to play in the third round.
Kuchar and Woodland battled to a tie for the lead. Kuchar wounded up with a 70 in the third round. However, the final round at the Liberty National doesn’t belong only to them. They could be facing a tough competition from Kevin Chappell who broke the tournament course record with a bogey-free 62.
Chappell’s round was quite strong and was 10 shots better that the average scores at Liberty National. He was one shot behind Kuchar and Woodland.
Chappell’s round proved that even in windy conditions low scores are available. He is followed by Tiger Woods and David Lynn who shot 69 to move to T-4 at 8 under.
The leading 100 players, out of the top 125 players who qualified for The Barclays, will advance to next week’s Deutsche Bank championship in Boston.
Kuchar had already won The Barclays three years ago. The winner of the playoffs finale, this year, will receive a bonus prize of $10 million.
