There was no shortage of movement on the leaderboard on Day 3, as a number of golfers put together strong performances.

Having started the day in contention at 10-under, Tringale didn't get off to the best of starts with a bogey on the first hole. He did, however, recover nicely, birdieing each of the next two holes. He piled up a total of five birdies on the front nine.

Though he cooled off a touch on the back nine, he did manage two more on the 14th and 17th holes. 

"The bogey on the first hole lit my fire," Tringale said after. "I was able to gather myself and birdie the next two holes and give me some confidence. It was a great day hitting a lot of fairways and greens. I play my best golf when I'm loose."

Of note, the 31-year-old has yet to record a victory on the tour. He has three career third-place finishes on Tour. He has a pair of fifth-place finishes this season, accomplished most recently at last month's Rocket Mortgage Classic.

Landry, meanwhile, instantly started making moves by picking up three birdies in the first five holes. Back-to-back bogeys early on the back nine threatened to derail his momentum, but a birdie on 13 got him back on track.

With the field battling for positioning near the end of the day, Landry grabbed a share of the lead with back-to-back birdies on the 16th and 17th holes.

Landry, who has one career Tour victory, understands the opportunity at hand.

"I don't ever take these moments for granted," Landry said afterward per Local 4 WHBF. "They're very hard to get into these situations. It's extremely hard to win on the Tour. I'm just very blessed to be here. It was definitely a struggle day, but I definitely played very, very well."

He also credited clutch putting for helping him stay in contention.

Haas made the most of moving day by putting together the best round of anyone in the field. The 37-year-old started his ascent up the leaderboard with a birdie on the three, and that would only be the start of an impressive day on the course.

Haas played a flawless round of golf, piling up a total of seven birdies without suffering a single bogey. He finished the day on a high note as he tallied four birdies in a five-hole stretch starting on the 13th.

That late surge had him briefly tied for the lead, though Tringale and Landry would later pull ahead. Hass was one of just four golfers to record a 64 on the day. According to the PGA Tour, it was his lowest round of the season.

Sunday's action tees off at 1:45 p.m. ET
