EDISON, N.J. – Nick Watney, who entered the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup ranked No. 1, has just become the 11th player to birdie the driveable 18th hole.
Watney hit his drive short and right of the green on the 285-yard par 4. He then chipped on and made a 13-footer for birdie to move to 2 under.
Meanwhile, Harrison Frazar, who picked up his first PGA TOUR victory earlier this year, has made birdie at the par-5 12th hole, rolling in a 16-footer, to move into a tie for the lead with J.J. Henry at 5 under.
Adam Scott also was in that group but he missed the green at the par-3 third, his 12th hole of the day and couldn’t get up and down for par. So he’s tied with Vijay Singh and Ryan Palmer at 4 under.
