Fry's.com Third Round 2009

Mr Science Reports:


I kept score for Heath Slocum, Bryce Molder, and Tim Clark today.  They all started at -8, tied for 7th place.  Tim did well, shot a bogey-free 65 and is now tied for 2nd, 3 behind Troy Matteson who shot 61 for the 2nd day in a row.  Heath had 68 with 3 bogeys, and Bryce had 70, missed a bunch of makeable putts.  Tim lives in Silverleaf, a few miles north of me, and Bryce also lives in Scottsdale.

There wasn't much excitement in our group, though.  They started slow, playing the first 6 holes in a total of 3 over par, where the field is typically well under par.  But they were knocking the pins down, collectively, on the back 9, where on several holes all of them had birdie putts under 20 feet.  Very few long ones went in, though.

There was plenty of excitement elsewhere.  Nicholas Thompson made 2 on the par 5 11th, and then made 1 on the 13th.  Ted Purdy made an ace on 16, winning the Mercedes, and about 1/2 hour later Chad Campbell did the same, winning ... the respect and admiration of his peers.  Webb Simpson, who is tied for 2nd, holed out a wedge from 129 yards on 14 for eagle.  Young phenom Rickie Fowler is T5, shot 69 today with 2 double bogeys after being tied for the 36-hole lead.
Back to O'Donoghue's tomorrow, I think, unless J
unior Science is coming over in the afternoon with his engagement pictures.
