Valspar 2021 Day 3: Burns and Bradley hold 1-shot lead over Homa


PGA TOUR 2021 - Valspar Championship at Copperhead, Innisbrook GC

Day 3:  Keegan Bradley, Sam Burns share 1-shot lead 

From the Daily Wrap-Up, by AP:

Sam Burns had a three-shot lead with five holes to play Saturday and had to make an 8-foot bogey putt on the 18th hole just to keep a share of the lead with Keegan Bradley in the Valspar Championship.

Burns had two bogeys over the final three holes at Innisbrook, both from errant tee shots, and he did well to make sure his finish wasn't worse. He had to two-putt from 75 feet on the final hole for bogey and a 2-under 69.

Bradley, who got back in the mix by chipping in for eagle, also bogeyed the 18th for a 69.

They were at 14-under 199, tying the 54-hole tournament record set by K.J. Choi in 2002 and matched by Adam Hadwin in 2017. Both Choi and Hadwin went on to win.

This was hardly a two-man race, not the way Max Homa finished. Homa ran in a birdie putt from just inside 30 feet on the 15th hole, and after a bogey on the tough 16th, he closed out his round of 66 by making a 35-foot bending birdie putt from the fringe on the 18th.  Read more here
