Tour Championship 2013 Leaderboard Day 3: Scores, Standings and Results
Henrik Stenson of Sweden continued his blistering play during the early stages of Day 3 of the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club.
Heavy rains seemed to wash away some of his magic touch, however. Stenson recorded four bogeys on the back nine to end his day one under par and top the leaderboard at 11 under.
Dustin Johnson is applying pressure four strokes back at seven under, setting up an interesting finish on Sunday for the FedEx Cup Playoff and its $10 million prize.
Adam Scott started the day in second place at six under but suffered from flu-like symptoms and finished the day at four over par. Tiger Woods finally went under par at an East Lake course that has traditionally treated him well. He shot 69 on Saturday, still 14 strokes shy of the lead, but remains projected to finish second in FedEx Cup standings.
Weather conditions are expected to improve on Sunday. Can Stenson get back to the uncanny level of play that carried him through the first 45 holes, or will someone overtake him to claim the 2013 Tour Championship?
With the rain only expected to get worse, I'm sure all are glad to be in the clubhouse after a soggy Saturday.
We're now just one day away from the awarding of the FedEx Cup and its $10 million.
Stenson would need to stumble in a big way to miss out on the big prize.
Here's the final leaderboard for the end of Round 3.
Spieth and Scott make par on 18...and Stenson misses his putt! He drops to eleven under to finish the day.
Here's how the leaderboard stands as the last group heads into the final hole. Bet they'll be glad to be finished and get out of the rain!
It's a par for Stenson, a bogey for Spieth to drop to four under—and a birdie for Adam Scott, his first of the day! That moves him back to two under, not that far from the rest of the field.
Leaders on 17 and the rain trying to get heavier at Atlanta... did i hear thunder?— Benjamin Everill (@beneverill) September 21, 2013
Just one group left on the course, finishing up the 17th.
Both Spieth and Scott are looking at long-ish putts for par.
Dustin's the first one of his group to hole at 18.
He makes par to finish the day at 67 and keep things just a little bit interesting going into Sunday's action.
Par for Johnson, but another bogey for Stenson at 16 takes him back to twelve under. The lead IS now cut to five.
Jordan Spieth had a birdie at 15 to get himself back to even on the day.
Correction on that leaderboard. Stenson did lay down a birdie on the 15th—it was a par five.
His lead remains six shots over Johnson.
Here's a quick look at the current FedEx Cup projections.
With Scott's drop-off today, Tiger's back to a projected finish of No. 2. However, unless Woods makes a huge move up the leaderboard on Sunday, he'd need a gaggle of golfers to pass Stenson in order to have a chance at the $10 million cheque.
He makes it!
Stenson has a 3 foot putt for par on 15, so the lead is now down to five.
Dustin Johnson is making a move! He has another good look at a birdie on 16, with a five foot putt.
After a rough start, likely due to his flu symptoms, Adam Scott has settled down since falling to five over. He's shot par for the last six holes to stay steady at one under overall.
I wonder if Stenson is having a hard time staying focused with such a big lead?
That's his second bogey of the back nine, dropping him to twelve under par.
Stenson looks like he's about to bogey the 14th, while Dustin Johnson birdied the 15th to move back to six under. Stay tuned, the lead could close to a mere six shots!
Oh! Some trouble for Stenson off the 14th tee. Penalty stroke. This is a slice of unexpected drama.
