Ben Martin fashioned a bogey-free 8-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of the Barracuda Championship reaping 16 points, the week's highest total thus far, and posting 33 points total. UPDATE: With play completed, Martin is in a two-way T2, six points back of 54-hole leader Greg Chalmers.
The 28-year-old striped 10 (of 14) fairways and peppered 14 greens in regulation, circling eight birdies and bumping eight places on the live leaderboard to solo second. He posted 2.068 in SG: Around-the-Green and 4.900 SG: Tee-to-Green and is the current leader in both stats with cumulative totals of 5.468 and 10.937, respectively. The Clemson alum circled back-to-backs four times during his lap, carding birdies on Nos. 2, 3, 8, 9, 13, 14, 17 and 18. His split featured a 21'2" roll at the par-3 third and a 24-footer from short of the green at the par-4 17th, brushing it in with the flat stick.
