@PGATourBrunch Coverage of Round Three at Colonial Club
FORT WORTH - World No. 1 and FedEx Cup leader Scottie Scheffler posted a second consecutive bogey-free round, carding a 5- under (65) Friday to retain a share of the lead; he is the only player in the field without a bogey.
Making his 10th start and playing his 26th round at the Charles Schwab Challenge, Scott Stallings carded a bogeyfree 6-under 64, his lowest score at the event and tied Danny Lee for the low round of the day.
For a third consecutive Charles Schwab Challenge, an 18-hole leader/co-leader also leads/co-leads after 36 holes (Beau Hossler, Scottie Scheffler/2022; Jordan Spieth/2021; and Harold Varner III/2020)
Since 1990, the second-round leader/co-leader has won the Charles Schwab Challenge 11 times.
Co-leaders are 1-2-3 in Strokes Gained: Approach the Green this week (Hossler/1st; Stallings/2nd; Scheffler/3rd)
Three of the top four players on the leaderboard have fewer than three bogeys through 36 holes: Scheffler (T1/zero), Hossler (T1/two), Patrick Reed (4th/two).
Justin Thomas, winner of last week’s PGA Championship, played Nos. 7-10 at 6-over par on Friday, including a triple bogey at the par-4 ninth, ending the longest active streak of made cuts on Tour at 21, dating back a year to the 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge.
Jon Rahm now has the longest active streak with 11 consecutive made cuts.
