This week: Nationwide Tour’s Chitimacha Louisiana Open, Thursday through Sunday, Le Triomphe Country Club, Broussard, La.
Third-round score: Even-par 71.
Position: Putnam (1-under 212) is tied for 54th, eight strokes behind co-leaders Bubba Dickerson and Scott Sterling (204).
Recap: The Tacoma golfer made a move with
back-to-back birdies on Nos. 7 and 8, but the hole that continues to
bite Putnam is the par-5 12th. He bogeyed it Saturday after making a
double bogey in the first round Thursday. This one really halted a
charge up the leaderboard.
Tee time Sunday: 7:13 a.m. PDT with Josh Broadway.
