JT! Justin Thomas was en fuego on Saturday afternoon, carding a smooth six-under-par 66 to take a two-shot lead into the final round of the 2020 Workday Charity Open at Muirfield Village.
Thomas has been stellar this week and he is just the second player since 1990 (Jim Furyk, 1997) to go through 54 holes without a bogey at Muirfield Village!
After racing out of the gate, Thomas took the lead for good on the par-5 11th. He had every facet of his game working today.
Playing in the last group, Thomas erased a three-hole deficit thanks to finding fairways and greens. While Thomas was six-under, 36-hole leader Collin Morikawa struggled with an even par round of 72.
Early in the round, Thomas found a divot and had this unreal approach shot.
That shot is so difficult and he makes it looks so easy. That’s why he is a pro! Thomas has a little bit of breathing room heading into Sunday.
I said he was doing everything right. You don’t believe me?! Here’s a nifty up-and-down from the rough.
In case you were really doubting me here’s a nice little sand save. Such a tough shot. Green running away. Water. JT was feeling it today!
Here’s how we stand with 18 holes to play.
Thomas was not the only player to make a move as Viktor Hovland had eight birdies on the way to third round 66.
Hovland loves the 14th! He drove it for the second day in a row. He’s been so solid since the restart and has the second-best score-to-par of any Tour player not named Bryson DeChambeau in the last month.
Also, I LOVE his swing. Check him letting the big dog eat!
Should be another solid Sunday. The final group is JT, Morikawa and Hovland. LET’S GO!
Is JT going to hold on? I think so! Who do you have winning it all?
