This week: Humana Challenge, Thursday through Sunday, PGA West Resort (Palmer, Nicklaus, La Quinta CC), La Quinta, Calif.
Third-round scores: All three locals shots 2-under-par 70 – with Stanley at La Quinta CC, and Kelly and Gonzales at Nicklaus Private.
Position: Stanley (4-under 212) tied for 127th, Gonzales (1-under 215) tied for 144th and Kelly (even-par 216) tied for 148th. All three men missed the cut (10-under 206). Scott Stallings leads at 22-under 194.
Recap: Starting the day at 2-under, Stanley needed to get off to a scorching start if he wanted to post a low score. And he made the turn at 1-over after a bogey at the 12th hole. … Gonzales did make a lot of birdies early – five in his first seven holes. But a bogey-double bogey finish to his opening nine holes cooled down the momentum. … A good start (four birdies over final six holes of opening nine) was undone by one bad hole late – a double bogey at the par-5 eighth.
Next: All three are in the field at next week’s Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines North and South Courses in La Jolla, Calif.
