Making his tourney debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 141 Wesley Bryan enjoyed a career-low 8-under-par 33-30=63 in the two-day third round of the Genesis Open to post 12-under 201, up 18 spots to T2 and good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With third-round play completed, Bryan is in solo 2nd, five back of leader Dustin Johnson, who shot 64.
Second-round leader Dustin Johnson, the reigning PGA TOUR Player of the Year, is the leader on the course at 14-under with five holes to play. Bryan, the 2016 Web.com Tour Player of the Year, began the third round T20 on 4-under (69-69), six back of Johnson. He was 2-under thru four holes (on Saturday) when play was suspended and returned Sunday morning to finish off his first half with birdie-2 at 6 and bogey-5 at eight. The 26-year-old drove the par-4 10th, dropping eagle from 4'1", and then circled birdies at 11, 14 (from 25'8"), 16 and 17 (26'7") to post the low round of the week thus far. This is his 13th career TOUR start, ninth as a member, and the 63 eclipses a previous-best 64 in R2 of the 2016 John Deere, where he posted his lone top 10 with T8.
