Dustin Johnson makes his move, leads after third round at Saudi International

0

There was plenty of golf to be played on Saturday at the Saudi International, a perfect match for a hot streak from the World’s No. 1 player.

Dustin Johnson finished his lightning-delayed second round on Saturday morning in impressive fashion, dropping birdies on half of his final six holes for a scorching 64. He then followed with another solid 66 in the afternoon in the third round, giving him a two-stroke lead heading into the final round at Royal Greens Golf and Country Club in King Abdullah Economic City.

Johnson sits at 13 under while Victor Perez used a pair of 66s to move into second place all alone at 11 under. A quartet of players, including Tyrrell Hatton and Tony Finau, sit tied for third at 10 under.

On Friday, Johnson came out of the gates quickly before an incident in which he struck a marshal with his drive on the 10th hole. That didn’t slow him down, however, and he maintained that momentum all the way through Saturday.

In fact, Johnson nearly eagled the final hole of the day, but his putt barely missed high.

Other big names still in contention include Viktor Hovland, Martin Kaymer and Sergio Garcia, who all sit four back at 9 under. Garcia shot a 64 in the third round to get back near the top.

Bryson DeChambeau shot a 68 and sits at 7 under with one round remaining.
