If there was someone from the Tiger Woods-Gregory Havret pairing that was going to make a move on the lead Sunday, most might have expected it to be Woods. It’s been the Frenchman Havret, however, who has played incredibly steady throughout the round. Yes, Havret has two bogeys, but he also had two early birdies. He’s also made five straight pars and he’s now just one back after starting the day six back.
Havret, of course, is only at Pebble Beach after surviving a playoff at a U.S. Open sectional qualifier to get into the field. You don’t have to go back very far to find the last sectional qualifier to win a U.S. Open -- Lucas Glover did it last year. The last local and sectional qualifier to win, however, was Orville Moody. -- Brian Wacker
