The final groups are on the back nine at Montreux G&CC, where J.J. Henry is in position for his first win since 2006, the year of his only win on the PGA TOUR.
Henry has three birdies so far in the final round -- which were worth six points -- but for the week he has 16 of them. More importantly, he’s had three eagles this week. Those were worth an additional 15 points.
Though it’s unlikely John Daly -- who had 32 points when he made the turn to the back nine -- will catch Henry, there’s no denying Daly has played well of late.
Daly tied for 19th in Memphis in June then tied for 12th at The Greenbrier Classic last month. In Canada last week, three of his four rounds were in the 60s, including a final-round 66.
Others in contention on the back nine in Reno: Alexandre Rocha, Andres Romero and John Mallinger.
