Ted Potter Jr. Fired his all time low, Professional round, today and it took the 9 under par 62 to tie Dustin Johnson for the 3rd round lead at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Ted is pinching himself tonight after he made his last putt at Monterey Peninsula CC.

He had a nice -2 under par 32 on the front nine with 2 bogeys.

The back nine was something pros dream about. 5 birdies, 1 eagle, & 3 pars for a stellar 30.

It is a unique nine holes with 3 par 5’s so 7 under becomes a 30. Great round and he is looking forward to being paired with DJ at Pebble Beach on Sunday’s final round.

Johnson was somewhat erratic today and maybe got the short end of the stick as Pebble Beach played harder today than any other day of the tournament so far.

DJ was all over the place and his scorecard showed it. Front nine started out par, eagle, then a bogey, birdie, par, birdie, birdie, par, & par.

That totalled up to 32 and a nice -4 under par 1st nine. The back side was even wilder.

Bogey on #10, then par, bogey, 4 pars in a row, bogey, & finally a birdie 4 on the tough 18th hole.

Jason Day and Troy Merritt are tied for third place. Jason fired a solid -3 under par round to end up -12 for the tournament so far.

Merritt was -2 under today at Monterey Peninsula CC to end up -12 under and in a tie for third place.

Big three-way tie for third place with Steve Stricker, Pat Rodgers, & Jon Rahm. All three are at -11 under par and are looking for a great Sunday afternoon on the Monterey Coast.

Will McGirt and Ben Martin posted -6 under par rounds and only Ted Potter Jr. Bested that total today.

Enjoy Sunday’s final round and don’t forget the Celebrity Par 3 contest at 12:00 noon EST.

Going to be a blast because so many of these celebrities have low handicaps. Who knows maybe a hole in one?
