Barclays 2012: Day 3 Leaderboard Updates, Highlights and More
Sergio Garcia is golfing like it's 1999. A week after winning his first PGA event since 2008, a two-shot win at the Wyndham Championship, he has pulled out to a two-stroke lead at the end of the third round at the Barclays.
Garcia fired a two-under 69 to now sit at 10-under for the tournament. Nick Watney, who began the day tied with Garcia, was even, and he is alone in second place.
During his recent resurgence, Garcia has shown poise, consistency and a short game which have been absent in recent seasons.
He has always been a great ball-striker, but his chipping and especially putting have taken extended breaks over the course of his career. He has been smooth and in control in this tournament.
Garcia also can let a few bad shots get in his head and destroy his round. In other words, he will compound mistakes.
This below shot is a great example of how in control he is right now.
Final Third-Round Leaderboard
If anyone does challenge Garcia, it is likely to be Kevin Stadler. He was on fire on Saturday; posting a six-under to move him into third.
Stadler and Watney are the only golfers within three of Garcia. There are six golfers within five, but the way Sergio is going, no one will be able to make up that much ground.
As you may have noticed above, Tiger Woods is not on the leaderboard. He can thank his putter for that. Tiger set an ominous personal best, or worst in this case, with four three-putts in 18 holes.
He still managed a one-over, but he is well off the lead at four-under for the tourney.
