Nicolas Colsaerts carded three birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey on his front nine on Saturday.
This probably wasn't what Nicolas Colsaerts had in mind. Colsaerts, who entered Saturday's third round of the Frys.com Open at 9 under, had an up-and-down Saturday, finishing with an even-par round of 71 that didn't come without some fireworks. Colsaerts opened with birdies at Nos. 1 and 4 to climb to within three shots of leader John Mallinger, but then went bogey-bogey-double bogey-bogey. He has since made a birdie at the par-5 ninth hole and another at the par-4 10th to get back to 8 under. Colsaerts three-putted the fifth hole after a poor tee shot and bogeyed the sixth after another poor tee ball. On the par-3 seventh, Colsaerts hit his tee shot left and than couldn't reach the green until his third shot and two-putted for a 5.  He also bogeyed the eighth, but rebounded with a birdie on the ninth after he stuck his approach to within five feet. After the birdie at the 10th, he's five shots back of the lead. He went on to bogey the 11th before adding birdies on the 15th and 17th holes. Colsaerts would rank around 120th on the money list if eligible this season. He's attempting to earn his PGA TOUR card so he has status on both the PGA TOUR and European Tour next season.
