It hasn't exactly been a banner year for Frenchman Gregory Havret on the European Tour this year, but he has to like his position through three rounds at Pebble Beach.
Thanks to a 2-under 69, Havret is even par for the tournament, and will play in one of the final groups in Sunday's final round. He's currently tied for fourth, five shots behind leader Graeme McDowell.
Havret, playing in his first U.S. Open, posted birdies at hole Nos. 5 and 6 on Saturday, then played even par the rest of the way with two more birdies and two bogeys.
Havret has just one top-10 finish in 13 starts in Europe this year, and has missed six cuts.
