Robert Garrigus stalled out to a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the Quicken Loans National to reach the three-quarter pole on 7-under 206, eight in arrears to 54-hole leader Billy Hurley III.
The 38-year-old began the third round in a three-way T8 on 6-under, five back of overnight co-leaders Hurley III and Jon Rahm. He mustered seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting negative numbers across the board, with one notable exception, a 1.807 in SG: Putting. The Idaho native entered the week ranked 194th on TOUR in SGP, and thru 54 holes, is No. 2 with a cumulative 6.487. He was 3-under on his lap thru 14 holes, erasing bogey at the second with birdies on Nos. 5, 6, 11 and 13, but bogeyed 15 and 18 coming to the house, missing par-savers from 5'5" and 6'2", respectively. Three of his birdies traveled between 10 and 18 feet, but his longest of the day dropped from 18'3" for par at the third. Garrigus has connected three straight red numbers for the first time in five months.
