Past champ Carl Pettersson ballooned to a 13-over-par 37-47=84 in the third round of the RBC Heritage and at 11-over 224, will not have a Sunday tee time.
A total of 82 players made the 36-hole cut of 2-over 144, 20 on the number, so a second cut of low 70 and ties was required after 54 holes. Pettersson, the 2012 RBC champ, sat T21 after two laps on 2-under 140 (71-69), and kicked off R3 with an eagle from the fringe 12 feet, eight inches away at the par-5 second. He chased with four consecutive bogeys on Nos. 3-6 and added a birdie-3 at nine to turn 1-over. The 38-year-old came home in birdie-less 12-over 47, squaring three bogeys, three doubles, and a triple bogey-7. His 84 dropped him 60 places to 81st place, and coupled with Daniel Summerhay's 80 (posted later), allowed seven players at 7-over 220 to play on Sunday. Joining Pettersson on the pine for the finale are: 221- RBC's Nick Taylor; Michael Kim; Greg Owen; Andres Gonzales ... 223- Chris Stroud ... 227- Hiroshi Iwata.
