Deutsche Bank Championship 2013: Ranking Top Contenders After Day 3
After three days at the 2013 Deutsche Bank Championship, Sergio Garcia is still in the lead with a 19-under-par 194.
The 33-year-old Spaniard went six under Sunday after going five under on Day 2 at TPC Boston. That included seven birdies to one bogey.
Of course, several talented players are looking to give Garcia a run for his money, including an old-timer who won the Deutsche Bank Championship in 2009.
Here's a look at my top contenders after Day 3 at the 2013 Deutsche Bank Championship.
Steve Stricker (-16)
Steve Stricker soared into contention Sunday with an eight-under 63, racking up six birdies before posting an eagle on the final hole.
The 46-year-old is coming off a 12th-place finish at the PGA Championship, and he placed 13th at the Deutsche Bank Championship last year.
Stricker has struggled in the final round this year—ranked 117th in fourth-round scoring average, according to PGATour.com—but his meteoric rise in the third round Sunday could be a sign of things to come.
I think the popular veteran will fall just short of the trophy Monday.
Sergio Garcia (-19)
Will Sergio Garcia win the 2013 Deutsche Bank Championship?
Sergio hasn't placed in the top 10 since the Players Championship in early May. That is likely to change at the Deutsche Bank Championship, but I still can't see the 33-year-old winning the tournament Monday, even with a two-shot lead.
Garcia placed 45th, 21st, 40th, 61st, 29th and 37th on the PGA Tour after the Players Championship. He's beaten himself up at majors during that time, and he ranks 165th on tour in final-round scoring average, via PGATour.com.
Call me a pessimist, but it's hard for me to imagine Garcia putting together four solid rounds in a row after his recent stretch.
Henrik Stenson (-17)
After compiling six top-10 finishes and three second-place finishes this year, it's time Henrik Stenson actually won a tournament.
The 37-year-old placed 43rd at The Barclays, but before that, he posted three straight top-three finishes on the PGA Tour, including a third-place finish at the PGA Championship.
Stenson—who went five under Sunday—is two strokes back from the lead. He's ranked 30th in final-round scoring average this year. I think the Swedish veteran will capture his first victory of the year at TPC Boston.
