SAN MARTIN, Calif. -- From one shot back to one shot ahead. That’s what just happened to Briny Baird after he holed out for eagle from just off the 17th green to get to 17 under on the week and one shot clear of Bryce Molder.
No to be outdone, Molder stuck his approach shot to birdie range.
Meanwhile, Bud Cauley just finished at 15 under after a 66. At the moment he’s in third place, which helps tremendously as he tries to earn enough to skip q-school later this year. In any event, a top-10 gets him into the field for next week’s McGladrey Classic.
So basically we’re down to Baird or Molder, both of whom are trying to win for the first time in their careers.
