PGA TOUR: Landry drops into tie for 54th

Sabotaged by poor putting, Andrew Landry had to settle for a third-round 73 that dropped him into a tie for 54th at the 54-hole mark of the Players Championship in Ponte Vedra, Florida.

Landry, though he continued to miss fairways, still gave himself enough good looks for a round in the 60s. He needed 32 putts, however, with four misses from inside 6 feet and three others under 12 feet.

Jon Rahm came from back in the pack to take the lead with an eight-under-par 64. Rahn stands at 15-under 201. Tommy Fleetwood and Rory McIlroy are one stroke back.

Other that a 36-foot bomb for birdie on the par 4, fifth, Landry’s longest make was 5 feet, 3 inches to salvage par on the 18th hole. His only other birdie came from 3-10 on the par 5, ninth.

The hole that hurt the Port Neches-Groves ex worst was the par 5, 16th, which was playing as the easiest at TPC Sawgrass. He was in the rough in two, 25 feet from the pin, and walked away with a bogey. Instead of going to one under he went to 1-over.

Among the 80 players making the 36-hole cut, Landry ranks 52nd in strokes gained putting and tied for 55th in putts per greens in regulation.

Final round television coverage of the Players begins Sunday at noon on NBC (KJAC-12.2).
