Kirk trying to land first victory

The final round of the Viking Classic has reached the back nine at Annandale Golf Club, where 51-year-old Tom Pernice is trying to make a little history of his own.

At 20 under through 14 holes, he’s just one shot off the lead.

The player he’s chasing? Chris Kirk, who is looking for his first career victory on the PGA TOUR. Kirk has played well of late and was in contention just two weeks ago when he carded a third-round 63 at the AT&T National before eventually tying for eighth.

Kirk has plenty of other company besides Pernice, though. Currently there are 11 players within three strokes of his lead.
