Laird and Cantlay lead in Las Vegas

As Bryson faulters the birdiefest continues

Bryson Dechambeau came down to earth with a slight bump in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Level par rounds are no good in a tournament where the leaders are averaging rounds of better than six under par!

Martin Laird of Scotland, who is looking for his first on the PGA Tour in seven years, and American Patrick Cantlay share the 54 hole lead. Both players carded six-under-par rounds of 65 to move to 20-under-par at Summerlin, Las Vegas.
"Yeah, I played really nicely. It was -- got a little tricky in spells. The wind was kind of swirling on the front nine; the back nine settled in a little bit," said the Scot.
"Really happy, hit the ball nicely, got the ball in the fairway a lot, which is what you've got to do around here. If you get it in the fairway you can be aggressive."
Round of the day came from U.S. Open runner-up Matthew Wolff who had an incredible run of three eagles in a five hole spell on the back nine of his round of 61.
Wolff's round moved him up into a share of second place alongside fellow Americans Brian Harman, Wyndham Clark and Austin Cook.
"I missed few coming down the stretch, but like I said, I put myself in a really good spot for the final day tomorrow," said Wolff.
"Yeah, I'm pretty pleased with my ball striking and how everything has come together."

As for Bryson, he was philosophical after his round of 70 left him seven off the lead.
Yeah, it was really weird. I don't know. It's golf, right? I mean, you're never going to play your best all the time, right? So I just felt like couple things got off a little bit. Didn't really hit bad shots, just didn't go where I wanted to." said Dechambeau.
