Dicky Pride twirled a season-low 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 9-under 201, currently T16 on the leaderboard, up 19 spots on the day.
The 47-year-old was paired with 26-year-old Bud Cauley, both University of Alabama products from a different era. For his part, the elder outpaced bogeys at Nos. 7 and 17 with birdies at 3, 5, 8, 11, 14, 16 and 17, highlighted by a 52-footer from the fringe at the par-3 third. Pride's 65 more than held his own to Cauley's 64, and is a season best in 52 rounds, brushing aside 68 (four times). The Tuscaloosa native entered the week 214th in the FedExCup standings and needs to crack the top 200 to, at the very least, qualify for the Web.com Tour finals.
