Players in the afternoon
wave at the Reno-Tahoe Open are struggling to catch the current
leaders, who took advantage of the benign morning conditions in
Round 3 at Montreux. Overnight leader Vaughn Taylor started the day
9 under, and has battled windy afternoon conditions to get to 1
under through 12 holes. He is three shots behind current leader
Scott Piercy, and one back of Josh Teater, who shot a 65 to move to
11 under. Pat Perez, John Merrick and Blake Adams are all tied with
Taylor at 10 under after rounds of 65, 66 and 67, respectively.
Taylor’s playing partner Will MacKenzie began the round in
second place at 8 under, but has lost three shots and is now in a
tie for 27th place.
