MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Robert Allenby begins the final round in third place, three shots behind 54-hole leader Brian Gay. Allenby, who lost in a playoff at the St. Jude Classic last year, is seeking his first Tour victory since 2001. He’s already the winner of the line of the week in the press row.
“Last fall you talked about sleeping with your putter on Saturday night. Are you going to try that again?” a reporter asked.
“My wife is here this week so I’ll sleep with her. Be much better,” cracked Allenby.
