The biggest thing that Heath Slocum said he took away from his win at last year’s Barclays was how calm he was not only all week, but especially on Sunday. His goal today was to replicate that feeling.
So far, he’s done just that, making the turn in 3 under to stake a three-shot lead with nine holes to play.
The only blemish for Slocum so far was a bogey on No. 9, where he missed the green on his approach then missed an 18-footer for par. That, by the way, was just the second green that Slocum has missed today. He’s also missed just one fairway.
