This week: Nationwide Tour’s Players Cup, Thursday through Sunday, Pete Dye Golf Club, Bridgeport, W.Va.
Third-round score: 2-under-par 70.
Position: Putnam (5-under 211) is tied for 23rd, eight strokes behind leader Tom Gillis (203).
Recap: One thing is for sure about the Tacoma
golfer, he never gives in. And he could have Saturday when he had a
bogey-bogey-double bogey stretch on Nos. 8 through 10 to fall 3-over on
his round. But he responded with four birdies, and another eagle on the
par-5 17th to lead to his tour-leading total of 13. He’s in search of
his first top-20 finish of the season.
Tee time Sunday: 7:05 a.m. PDT with Blake Adams.
