Zurich Classic of New Orleans - Round 3

Lucas Glover increased the margin of his lead at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to two (14-under) in the third round, but questions about his putter remain as he heads into the finale. Here are a few quick thoughts:

  • Glover's attitude stayed positive, but when he missed a 2'6" putt for par on the 14th, the mainstream golf world got to see what I've seen way too many times over the course of this year on Shot Tracker. A miss from inside three feet.
  • Watch out for Billy Horschel tomorrow. This is the right scenario for him to claim his first PGA TOUR win. Trailing, but not by much, and not in the final pairing. My guess is that one of three people win this thing. Glover, Horschel or Jimmy Walker. I don't see Kyle Stanley holding up.
  • I'm keeping the Yahoo! lineup of Horschel, Walker, Justin Rose and Jason Dufner the same for tomorrow. 
  • Note that the final round will take place starting at 7 a.m. local time tomorrow, with the leaders going off at 9:01. Early split tee threesomes are to try and get ahead of inclement weather that is forecast. 
Enjoy the finale!
