Sponsor invite D.A. Points bogeyed two of his final four holes but still authored a 7-under-par 29-34=63 in today's third round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 11-under 199, up 33 places to T2, sharing the early 54-hole clubhouse lead with fellow Illini alum Scott Langley. UPDATE: With play completed, Points is T10, seven shy of 54-hole leader Si Woo Kim.
The 39-year-old, making his seventh appearance, was originally fifth alternate when the field was published. He began the third frame on 4-under (T35), one inside the cut line, after opening with 70 and a 66 that saw him play his final 11 holes in bogey-free 5-under as he struggled to make the cut. The Pekin, Illinois, native posted week bests in fairways, 11 (of 14), and greens in regulation with 17, contributing to 3.960 in SG: Tee-to-Green. He circled nine birdies, including four straight on holes 4-7, with six dropping from inside of nine feet and a pair of 18-footers at six and 11. Unfortunately, Points squared bogeys on 15 and 18, 3-putting both from less than 35 feet, dampening his otherwise sterling putts per GIR to 1.588.
