CROMWELL, Conn. -- There are 18 players within three shots of the lead about midway through the third round here at TPC River Highlands. That lead, by the way, is now held by Bryce Molder, who just made the turn in 4 under to get to 13 under for the week, and Fredrik Jacobson, who birdied No. 10. Two others, including amateur Patrick Cantlay, are a shot back.
Another stroke back from there? J.J. Henry, the Connecticut native who won this tournament in 2006, and three others.
As for Cantlay, the 19-year-old amateur just hasn’t been able to get anything going -- certainly not like he did in the second round when he carded a 60. Through eight holes, he has one bogey and seven pars.
Part of the problem for Cantlay? Putting. He’s missed three from inside 10 feet today.
