This week: The Greenbrier Classic, Thursday through Sunday, The Old White TPC, White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.
Stanley’s third-round score: 5-uner-par 65.
Position: Stanley (4-under 206) is tied for 18th, six strokes behind Anthony Kim (200). Gonzales (3-over 143) missed the cut, and Putnam withdrew midway through his second round Friday.
Recap: The Bellarmine Prep product made up 43 spots on the leaderboard, and should have felt pretty good about his round – until he saw the 62s being posted by Kim and Jimmy Walker, his playing partner. Stanley finished in grand style, nearly holing out from the fairway from 105 yards on the 16th hole (21-inch birdie putt) and then a near-ace on the finishing par 3, playing 125 yards. His tee shot landed behind the hole and spun back to 20 inches from the cup.
Stanley’s tee time Sunday: 9:20 a.m. PDT with Andres Romero.
