Sabbatini, the Olympic silver medalist last month, has used his momentum from Tokyo to make a charge in the playoff standings. Former FedEx Cup champion Justin Rose, who started the week 138th in the standings, shot 69 after a bogey on the final hole. Just ask Tyler Duncan, who made five birdies on his front nine to move up 61 spots in the playoff standings to 101st.wftv.com

(AP Photo/Ryan Kang)LOS ANGELES – Sam Burns wanted to pay respect to tough Riviera by playing it safe. He chipped it about 10 feet short — anything too strong could lead to big trouble — and made the par putt. “Whenever we were kind of in a tricky spot, just kind of took what the golf course gave us,” Burns said. “I feel like I'm playing really well. “There's a lot of good players — really, really good players.
Garcia tied for lead going into final round in Mississippi
He was the first to post at 14-under 202, a lead that held until Garcia caught him, and J.T. He also is enjoying himself, even when putts that look like they're going in stay out. “We love to make every putt we look at — or not look at, in this case — but we know that's not going to happen,” Garcia said. Staked to a two-shot lead going into the weekend, he had three bogeys on the front nine before he hit a hybrid from 255 yards to 15 feet for an egle on the 11th hole. Not since that 2017 Masters has he had at least a share of the 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour.
