The OHL Classic Moving Day

On a lightening and rain-affected day it was USA’s Derek Fathauer who rose to the top of the leaderboard. He shot another six under 66 to take a one shot lead over fellow American Jason Bohn.
29 year-old Fathauer is at 16-under going into the final day, and if he can get over the line he will become the sixth first time winner on the PGA Tour this year. Fathauer turned pro in 2008, and earned his Tour card for 2009 after finishing in a tie for second at the PGA Tour Q-School in La Quinta, California at the PGA West Golf Community.
He earned his first professional win at the 2014 Web.com Tour Championship, which gave him exemption for the PGA Tour for 2014-15 as he lead the money list.
It was 42 year-old Jason Bohn who had made a 25-foot eagle putt to take the lead, but he bogeyed the 18th for a final score of 65.
It was not to be Graeme McDowell’s day, as he could not replicate the form of his first two days, other than by securing another double bogey on his first hole. He’s five over par on his opening holes this week. If only….
He had a late birdie to get himself to a one under 70, but it can’t have been the kind of moving day he was hoping for. He will need to dig deep tomorrow to get back into the action. Hopefully his experience will kick in and he can chase down the leaders. He’s three shots behind Derek Fathauer, and sits tied third with Justin Leonard, Russell Knox and Harold Varner III, one shot back from Jason Bohn. Come on GMAC, get your skates on!
