For some reason, the field absolutely caught fire today. The course played almost 2 strokes easier than it did for for the first two days.
Of course when you look closer it is a little misleading. Just looking at the players that made the cut, Friday was the easiest day. Players making the cut averaged 67.8 strokes, while today they averaged 68.2. The scores just look a lot lower today, because there are no 78’s fired by scrubs.
Rory Sabbatini and John Mallinger dropped matching 65’s to extend their co-lead to 2 shots over the field. Obviously, they have the best chance of winning tommorrow, but with a relatively close field and low numbers out there, the final round of the Byron Nelson Classic should be more wide open than the EPGA Championship.
I was surprised already by Casey’s odds at Wentworth, so I don’t really want to throw out any guesses, but off the top of my head I’ll say Rory -205 to NOT win/+185 to win is the line. As longshots, Briny Baird or Kevin Streelman might be worth a look, but I don’t see anything incredibly attractive out there.
