Brice Garnett enjoyed a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Travelers Championship and his 9-under 212 aggregate has him five off the pace of 54-hole leader Brian Harman.
Garnett, T8 thru 54 holes, is in position to snag one of the four qualifying places (available at the Travelers) to next month's Open Championship. Places go to the leading four players (not otherwise exempt) who finish in the top 12 and ties. The 32-year-old will begin the final round in a six-way tie for the final spot with Patrick Rodgers, Jon Curran, Carl Pettersson, Jason Gore and Mark Wilson. For today's efforts, Garnett split nine (of 14) fairways and landed a perfect 18 greens in regulation, circling birdies on Nos. 6, 9, 10 and 12. Not out of the title hunt and Open Championship aside, Garnett is 143rd in FedExCup points, so he needs to finish the deal on Sunday. He's looking to add just his second top 10 (sixth, OHL Classic at Mayakoba) in his 22nd start on the season.
