The last time Heath Slocum made a bogey was his first hole (No. 10) in the first round – until now. Slocum just bogeyed the par-4 16th, ending a 50-hole streak without a black number on the card.
Slocum, who is now tied for the lead at 12 under, missed the green long on the 403-yard par-4 then failed to get up-and-down, missing a 19-footer for par.
Joe Durant also has just one bogey today and as a result he’s tied with Slocum. How good has Durant been this week? He’s missed just four fairways and five greens in nearly three full rounds. He’s also taken just 84 putts, good for fifth in the field.
Overnight leader David Toms, on the other hand, bogeyed two of his last holes, Nos. 14 and 15 and that dropped him back to even par for the day and two shots back as Round 3 winds down. -- Brian Wacker
