Lingmerth, who picked up his first PGA Tour victory at the Memorial two years ago, also bogeyed his last hole. And he didn't make a single birdie in his round of 78.
Joining Lingmerth in the afternoon tee times was Jordan Spieth, Daniel Summerhays and Justin Thomas. "If we get some showers like they're talking about it will be soft and be a little bit more scoreable. you keep trying to shoot as low as you can". Kuchar's round was bogey-free until the hard par-3 16th, but he was able to erase it on the 17th hole with a 155-yard approach to eight feet that led to a birdie. And then he three-putted the par-5 fifth for a fourth straight bogey.
"He called me and said, 'Bro, I played good, it's clicking, '" said Boyd Summerhays, Daniel's older brother by four years and also his coach.
Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson signed for a 68 and headed a group on 207 that also included Justin Thomas and Dufner - whose dismal round included a double bogey seven at the par-five 11th and a bogey at the 18th, where the 2013 PGA Championship victor was in the water off the tee.
"I'd have liked to have hit a couple more fairways but hit my irons when I was in the fairways pretty good". He played through nerves, as well, in contending at the PGA at Baltusrol, won by Jimmy Walker. "There will definitely be nerves", Summerhays said of his expectations for Sunday's final round.
The first two put him in the record book.
French Open to start with Petra Kvitova's return to court
On the morning of December 20, 2016, Kvitova was attacked by a man with a knife in her home in Prostejov , Czech Republic. Roland Garros opened its gates for the main tournament of the French Open amid tight security on a searing hot Sunday.
"I'd love to have two rounds in the 60s and feel like I've played solid golf going into Memphis and ultimately peak at Erin Hills". He missed the putts he had been making for two days.
Watson offset a birdie at 15 with a bogey at the next, and a flawless 20-foot putt for another birdie on the final green completed a four-under 68 as he chases a first victory since the Northern Trust Open at Riviera in February past year. Johnson, who had three wins this season before he hurt his back in a fall that forced him out of the Masters in April, teed off on 10 and posted a triple-bogey six at the par-three 16th, where he was in the water.
"A lot of luck with it going in", Dufner said. He shot 71 and was six shots behind. Spieth, who had missed consecutive cuts before last week, made bogeys at 17 and 18 to finish his front nine, but responded in style. I made some nice pars and rolled in some putts.
Muirfield Village member Jason Day (71) is 2 over after 36 holes, skirting clear of the cut line by two shots.
It was a tough day, too, for former world number one Jason Day, who had six bogeys and three birdies in a three-over 75.
Rickie Fowler and Jamie Lovemark are 8-under and Spieth, Kevin Kisner and Kevin Streelman are 7-under.
