WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- Troy Kelly is making just his 34th career start on the PGA TOUR.
After climbing to 10 under with a birdie on the par-5 12th here in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic, he’s in position to go after his first win.
It’s early in the round with players having gone off both tees and in groups of three after the second round was finished Saturday morning, but Kelly has it going with six birdies and no bogeys through his first dozen holes.
That’s certainly a turnaround from how the 33-year-old has played of later. He arrived at The Old White TPC having missed three of his last four cuts. On the year, Kelly has missed more cuts (eight) than he’s made (six).
He has plenty of company, though.
Webb Simpson, Jonathan Byrd, J.B. Holmes and Jerry Kelly are all just a stroke back.
