Lahiri gave away three bogeys, as against three bogeys and a double a day earlier. On Saturday, Lahiri played very well giving himself a bunch of chances, but failed to convert them. He had better greens in regulation stats as compared to first two days, despite being less accurate off the tee.
At the top, Jason Dufner took a big drop as he shot 77 and Daniel Summerhays shot a 4-under 68 to take over the lead. From a five-shot deficit, Summerhays now has a three-shot
lead at 13-under.
Bubba Watson overcame a heckler on the 18th hole with a birdie for a 68 and was four shots behind along with Justin Thomas (69) and Dufner. Rickie Fowler (72) was five behind and Jordan Spieth shot 71 and he was six shots behind.
