The best round of the day? It might end up being Stewart Cink’s. The 2009 British Open winner is 7 under through 15 holes with seven birdies and no bogeys.
As a result, Cink is suddenly tied for fifth at 8 under and just three off the lead of Lucas Glover.
Cink’s bal-striking has been strong here in the third round with 12 of 15 greens in regulation. He’s also taken just 21 putts, which includes a couple of makes from beyond 15 feet.
Like the player he’s chasing, Cink hasn’t had a great few starts with a tie for 30th at The Heritage his best finish after a T59 in in Texas and a missed cut at the Masters.
In case you’re wondering, the course record should be safe. It’s a 62, which Rory McIlroy shot in last year’s final round.
