Lowry trails by seven in Phoenix
07 Feb 2016 14:02
Joint first-round leader Shane Lowry now finds himself seven shots behind New Zealand's Danny Lee after the penultimate round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
-
The Offaly man fired a one-over-par 72 to add to his opening round of 65 and his 70 in the second round to sit on six-under-par for the Arizona event.
-
Lee holds a three-shot lead at the top of the leaderboard after carding a 67, which consisted of six birdies and two bogeys to take his place on 13 under at TPC Scottsdale on a day when a crowd of 201,003 turned up to set a new record for golf’s highest attendance on a single day.
-
His nearest competition is Japan's Hideki Matsuyama and world number four Rickie Fowler, who are both on 10 under.
-
Matsuyama struck a 68 while Fowler scored a 70, but both men will need to score better on the final round if they are to catch Lee.
-
Overnight leader James Hahn had a day to forget as he slipped out of contention with a three-over-par 74.
-
The American, who held a one-shot lead at the midway point of the tournament, carded two double bogeys and three bogeys to leave him six shots adrift.
-
America's Bryce Molder was the biggest mover on the day as he holed eight birdies in his 64 to move up to nine under.
-
A blemish-free 65 from Phil Mickelson saw him card a 65 and he will hope to gatecrash the final-day party on eight under.
