LA QUINTA, Calif. -- Brian Stuard had a chance to do something Saturday that only five other people had done on the PGA TOUR.
Instead, he "settled" for a career-low 62 Saturday that left him in a tie for eighth at the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation. Stuard finds himself six strokes off the pace as he chases what would be his first TOUR win.
Stuard, who was playing the Nicklaus Private course, made the turn in 31 after making three birdies, an eagle and a bogey over the final six holes on the front nine.
He added birdies at Nos. 10 and 11, parred the 12th and then added two more birdies to get to 9 under for the day. An eagle at the 16th hole then put Stuard in position for the 59 but he was unable to birdie the par-3 17th and bogeyed No. 18.
