PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (June 15, 2019) – A day after making the blistering charge up the leaderboard to make the cut late Friday evening at the U.S. Open, former ETSU Buccaneer standout Rhys Enoch carded an even-par 71 in Saturday’s third round action from Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Enoch, who shot a 66 on Friday to advance into the weekend, moved 15 spots up the leaderboard following his 71 on Saturday. Enoch is tied for 41st at 2-over-par 215 (78-66-71).
Enoch birdied three straight holes from No. 4-6 to get to two-under early in Saturday’s third round, but ended up recording three bogeys over a seven-hole stretch on the back nine before a birdie on the par-3, 17th moved him back to a respectable even-par on the day.
Enoch – playing in his third career major championship – sits ahead of the likes of Phil Mickelson (T48, +3), Patrick Reed (T48, +3), Tommy Fleetwood (T60, +4), Zach Johnson (T64, +5) and Luke Donald (T72, +6).
Enoch is paired with two-time major champion Martin Kaymer (2014 U.S Open and 2010 PGA Championship) in Sunday’s final round and tees off at 1:50 p.m. EDT. FOX begins its television coverage at Noon Eastern.
Gary Woodland holds a one-shot lead over Justin Rose heading into the final round at 11-under-par 202.
Enoch played for ETSU from 2007-2012 and earned an individual berth to the NCAA Championship in 2010 after sharing medalist honors in the NCAA Regional. Enoch was the 2008 Atlantic Sun Freshman of the Year and four-time all-conference performer.
